Passing by Vaduz

October 2012. (It bears repeating)

The good thing about belonging to a group of tourists is being a follower. You won’t need to think about what’s next. You don’t need to worry if people enjoyed the tour or not. You only need to put on your walking shoes, open your eyes, open your ears, and take pictures. In my opinion, this is the best way to go on a first travel.

Visiting one place at a time, I had no idea for the day’s itinerary. Well, only a little. I very much agree ignorance is bliss. It’s more exciting to be surprised.

We were moving somewhere. To where?

Most of the time, we were on the road. Eurotrip is seriously not time-friendly.

We were passing by great houses

And beautiful trees!

Aha! Vaduz! Before that day, I have never heard of a country named ‘Liechtenstein’. My world history sucks.

It was a cold day. With a sun. See me shielding my eyes! (With my sister by the way)

Like other European countries, this place has its own castle too.

They chose a castle in Liechtenstein that could be reached only by one road and was surrounded by a fifteen-foot-thick wall. ~ Nancy Whitelaw

Someone shared itty-bitty info about the Liechtenstein Castle. For the life of me, I don’t recall any. O.o Not to worry, wikipedia is just around the corner for you and me to check out. 🙂

Anyway, what can you do with an attraction so high up above? As a mere peasant, all we could do was to walk the ground below.

Check out their humongous cabbage!

There were so few people around (didn’t help that we arrived there early) I could almost convince you it’s a ghost town.

Empty chairs and empty tables…. (come on, sing with me!)

And every sidewalk has an interesting ‘art’ on display.

Here’s a closer look at these horses:

(Oh, so there were people afterall!)

A few more hours and we were outta there in a jiffy. 😦

It’s back on the road….

And back to this kind of view.

In the end, when I look back to these trips, it’s nice to think that I have visited this part of Europe even once. I get to show off my pictures and reminisce as much as I can.

Where are we off to, after Liechtenstein? Get your maps and trace our roadtrip! Next city will be featured on my next post. Until then, adios!

  1. Unquestionably believe that which you stated.

    Your favorite reason seemed to be on the web the simplest thing to be aware of.
    I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people think about worries
    that they just do not know about. You managed to hit the nail
    upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing
    without having side-effects , people can take
    a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks

  2. Thanks for one’s marvelous posting! I certainly enjoyed reading it,
    you might be a great author. I will ensure that I bookmark your blog and will eventually come back

    great posts, have a nice holiday weekend!

  3. Hello there! This post could not be written much better!
    Looking at this article reminds me of my previous roommate!
    He continually kept talking about this. I most certainly
    will forward this post to him. Pretty sure he’ll have a good read.
