Feast of the Nativity of John the Baptist

Vacationing abroad these last weeks, Claudia and I have been blessed to visit beautiful places. After a few days in northern Scotland, on Orkney, we took an Alpine tour, staying in charming villages and hiking through spectacular mountains. It was a dreamy trip, whose fairy-tale mo-ment was a climb to bridge looking down over Neuschwanstein, King Ludwig II’s fantasy palace in Bavaria, the model for Disney’s Sleeping Beauty castle.
