Schloss Mittersill Retreat

 Like promised, here are some of the photos of the church retreat from last weekend. We stayed at Schloss Mittersill, a beautiful castle in the Austrian Alps. The views were incredible, the activities were a blast, and I met so many amazing people. The second day we took a hike up the mountain to the Krimml Waterfalls, the fifth highest waterfalls in the world. We took a break at a little mountain hut before descending, where I tried Germknoedel, an Austrian specialty, for the first time. It's basically a sweet dumpling filled with plum jam and covered in a mixture of poppy seeds and vanilla sauce. On the drive back to Munich we stopped at Hintersee, a beautiful lake in a valley surrounded by mountains. How peaceful would it be to live here?
