11 Days in Germany with A Toddler – What Excites & Worries Me

Castle Neuschwanstein

Tomorrow, Athena and I leave for Germany. It’s just us and planes, trains, buses, castles, parks, unique accommodations, bucket list adventures, family fun, and authentic cuisine. Without a doubt, I’m excited and so is Athena. We’ve been dreaming about it for more than a month, talking about all of the new experiences we’ll have and what we’ll see.

In the past month, Bucket List Publications has been able to send one reader, along with a guest, on a heli skiing and resort adventure with Selkirk Tangiers and Revelstoke Mountain Resort. His power dreams came true at the heli skiing capital of the world, BC, Canada, and all he needed to do was submit his bucket list and drive to the resort; we looked after the rest. Most recently, Len, a faithful reader, was delivered to the destination of his dreams – the back of a chauffeured Rolls-Royce limo with Matebele Limo. On April 6th, Len rode around in style and made one of his bucket list items a reality. Riding in a Rolls is an exclusively royal experience; even Kate Middleton chose to ride to Westminster Abbey on her wedding day in a Rolls-Royce Phantom.
