This is a guest post from a dear friend and a travel lover:
Transcending time and space is one of the most magnificent abilities of the human mind which enhances the experience of reading history. The ability to see in lucid details with the mind’s eye what the normal eyes cannot, is a blessing and a curse, for the human mind has this ability to conjure up worlds which might not be as magnificent as we imagine them to be. This ability to bring the past into the present poses a threat: the present itself might be ignored in favour of the past. Nowhere is this warp presented to us as vividly as in Neuschwanstein !
