places on earth to visit someday
To do list = drive down the California coast.
"Hansel", one of the 20 plus fairy-tale homes of Carmel, CA, that were built in the 1920's by Hugh Comstock.
I spent a week in August, 2011, driving along the coast. From San Francisco to Santa Monica with wonderful stops all along the way! What a fabulous way to escape the summer heat of the Palm Springs scorching summer temps! Carmel, Big Sur coastal restaurants, Hearst Castle, Santa Barbara, Santa Monica ... and the unbelievable coastal highway with it's gorgeous views!
My son will get to see this in June 2012, when he goes to Germany with his German class from school. Neuschwanstein Castle, royal palace in the Bavarian Alps of Germany, the most famous of three royal palaces built for Louis II of Bavaria, sometimes referred to as Mad King Ludwig, who grew up nearby at Hohenschwangau Castle
