This is the view at sunset from just behind the castle, through a cornfield.
Everything about my experience feels so much like it is out of a picture book, or fairytale.
I pulled my bike over on the side of the road, to be passed by people in little Euro cars, and I set up camp in the long grass, enjoying the absence of poisonous snakes, spiders and even fences! There are no fences here in Germany, unlike Australia.
I looked over the village of Schochwitz, thinking of who might have sat in this exact spot 1000 years ago, when the road was a track, and the passers by were on horseback, or walking!
There is a timeless feel to the view. Peaceful, and steady. All is well in the village:
Today we were very busy with guests in the castle. I love the feeling of being truly tired out, after an honest hard day’s work. I cannot explain the pleasure of a piece of Sourdough rye bread with butter and a cup of tea. Bliss.
After lunch, Mercedes took Mika, Jay and I for a drive. We ended up a little lost, but for me it was still a fantastic destination: Delitzch Castle. We basically drove 2 hours for an icecream, but what do they say? It’s about the journey, not the destination!
Pretty nice for a neighboring castle! Apparently it is a Baroque era castle, so a lot newer than our Schloss here at Schochwitz.
With love, from Josephine
