It’s been 30 years since the Chernobyl disaster changed the world. Its effects are still felt in the surrounding areas. I was born 4 years after the disaster but I have always known its name. I was aware of the disaster but had never really understood the causes, effects, or results. Over the years, I had seen many of the Buzzfeed or Dailymail collections of photos from the Chernobyl exclusion zone but a Chernobyl tour had never crossed my mind. Yet, in November 2015, I arrived in Ukraine for a two-day tour of the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone with ChernobylWEL.COMe.
Every Thursday, I will be posting a photo from my travels and a spotlight on the location. Today’s Spotlight Thursday is from Neuschwanstein Castle in Hohenschwangau, Germany. I looked at going by myself but found that it was cheaper to take the tour down there. I decided to take the Neuschwanstein Castle Small Group Day Tour from Munich. I meet my tour guide at the train station in Munich. The guide named David handled all the transportation and tickets to Neuschwanstein.
