When we were planning the in-laws’ visit, I asked them where they would like to go while they are here. They were also a military family many moons ago, and lived in Germany for quite a while, so they were already familiar with it. (Fun Fact: Hiccup is the third-generation military son born in Germany, as my husband and father-in-law were both born here while their fathers were stationed here.) Anyway, they requested that we go to Garmisch, an area in the mountains of Southern Germany. I had never been there before, but my husband had. I was excited to take this trip!
First I had to go searching for someplace to stay for a group our size. Hotel rooms are not really an option for us any more, now that we have 4 kids. I could barely get any sleep with 1 or 2 kids in the room with me, so forget it with 4. I found this gorgeous little rental apartment on www.homeaway.com. It was just as amazing as the photos!
Garmisch is an adorable town in a beautiful area! And it’s centrally located to visit many other places, like Neuschwanstein Castle, Oberammergau, and Austria. Stay tuned for more!
