I thought I would share some of my travels with my family while I’m staying home. If I don’t I will have too much to share when they leave! And you will never see it all. I’ve been staying home for the past few days while they travel. The first day I just needed a break. You get so used to being by yourself, or just me and the hubs at night, so it can get a bit overwhelming at times to have four other people here. Then I stayed home yesterday because I didn’t feel good, and I have a great deal of school work to get done before Monday. I’m staying home again with that schoolwork in mind, and hoping to get it done so I can go to Passau on Friday, and Munich from Saturday till Monday.
Last weekend we went to Dresden. Dresden has a history as the home of Electors and Kings of Saxony. The biggest draw and purpose of our trip was the Historical Grunes Gewolbe, or the Green Vault. This was the actual palace of Alexander the Strong, with most of his riches still in tact. Many of them were actually burnt and destroyed or partial destroyed during the war when the palace was set on fire. And more than half of the silver treasures were melted down after the war. But there are still so many left and they have tried to restore the palace to be as accurate to the original as possible. It was a very interesting tour through the palace and I highly suggest it to any history buffs in the area. I’d also like to share other pictures of the amazing old architecture of the town.
