I have been to several historical sites in Germany...I was born and raised there ! I have been to over a dozen castles ! Unfortunately since I am in the USA they are no longer near me. :(

We are getting to the end of our long road trip. We've gone to Gettysburg, NYC, Philadelphia, a national park where the revolutionary army spent a couple winters, WWII memorial, Lincoln Memorial, Vietnam Memorial,  going to Mount Vernon today, may stop at Lincoln sites on the way home. Plus, we got quality time w DH's family along the way.
