As we headed higher to elevation on the road from Munich, the scene changed dramatically into this magical, winter wonderland where everything was covered in snow. Then you see this fairytale castle in the distance (in addition to the snowy landscape) and your mind is totally blown. Once we made it to this lookout point, I never wanted to leave. Bucket list = check.
On my Birthday yesterday, I brought myself to the Disney Castle with 👦. My princess dream is now completed even though it literally just lasted 30mins which was the duration of the castle tour.
Anyways, thank you everyone for all birthday blessing and I had a really really lovely birthday here in Munich😍
Btw after all the troubles, he finally took the very first profile worthy photo 📷
I've been really stoked on the work I've been able to create lately. The content is fun, it's seen by hundreds and thousands of people and I actually end up with a final product that I'm proud of.
The only downside to the creative process is software limitations.
If you've seen my stories this past week, you know I've been struggling a lot with Premiere and based an how many of you reacted to my stories, I'm not the only one. This week while I was trying to tweak a simple speed ramp, Premiere crashed 5 times in a row! It seems like every time Adobe releases a new update, Premiere gets worse and worse. I've perused countless forums searching for something that I might be doing wrong but so far, I think I've tried it all.
- Cleared my cache ✅
- Turned off FX ✅
- Reduced playback to 1/8 resolution ✅
- I run all of my projects off of an SSD ✅
- Decent GPU and CPU ✅
- 32GB of RAM ✅
You get the point
I love the work that I do and I love the entire Adobe Creative Suite for allowing me to do it, but I find I waste so much time waiting, restarting and waiting again. My workflow isn't efficient anymore. An edit that should take 1 -2 days ends up taking twice as long.
Sorry for the rant, but I'd love to know if anyone has any other solutions I can try to make Premiere run smoother?
OR if anyone has made the switch to Resolve?
Thank you for coming to my Ted Talk
Visiting Neuschwanstein castle had always been something we wanted to do, even before we got kids. For one reason or another we had never been able to come to this amazing place.
Getting to Neuschwanstein is relatively easy. The castle lies above the small Bavarian village of Hohenschwangau in southwestern Germany, but there is no train station there. The nearest train station is only 5 kilometers away in the town of Füssen (around 2 hours by train from Munich). We came straight from Vienna, so the travel time was longer for us, but the ride on the train was so beautiful that we lost track of the six hours and a half that we spent on the train.
After finally arriving in Füssen and checking in at our hotel, we went back to the street opposite of the train station where we caught the bus that took us to the ticket center near where the castle is located.
As we got off the bus, it started to snow and the kids were super excited! The castle was about to close and we actually needed to get to the top of the hill to see the castle. There are three options to get to the top: to walk for 40 mins uphill, take a horse carriage or take a shuttle bus. If deciding to go by horse carriage or shuttle bus, they will take you closer to the castle’s entrance but you still need to walk for about 10 mins.
We decided to walk to the top even though we wouldn’t make it in time to see the castle, just so the kids were able to play in the snow. It was snowing on and off and the kids were even able to make a tiny snow man ⛄️ The next day we woke up to a sunny day and a snowy setting from the day before. We couldn’t have asked for a better day with the sky as clear as it could be. We were super ready to do the hike again and this time when we reached the entrance we found the most spectacular castle we had ever seen!!! This famous tourist attraction is considered one of the most beautiful places in the world for a reason 💕🇩🇪

@wongjonsilver and I ran into a bunch of bad luck our first day visiting Neuschwanstein castle, the famous castle off which Disney based most their castles. It was incredibly foggy that day, so even standing directly under the castle, the upper half was still hard to see. Also, the alleged best viewpoint of the castle was from a nearby bridge, which happened to be closed for maintenance, not that we could've seen anything with the fog anyways. (Swipe to last photo to see the sadness)
Bummed out, we decided to try to come back two days later, the day we were supposed to return our rental car at the airport before our flight to Berlin. We woke up at 7am and drove back to the castle, and found a hidden spot (just before the bridge closed for maintenance) that offered this magnificent view!! ❄️🏰🎄 It was stunning in person, and so very worth the lost sleep and extra driving. If anyone ever visits this castle in the future, hit me up - I've pinned the secret spot on Google maps 😉
