May 1st is a public holiday here, but since it falls on a Sunday this year, it doesn’t do us any damn good. But considering the fact that in Bavaria there are four public holidays in May and three of them are during the week, I’d say we don’t have too much to complain about!
Last year though, May Day was on a Friday and we took advantage of it. A friend of mine had been wanting to visit Schloss Linderhof, and while it is possible to get there via public transportation,* BV and I thought we’d invite her to join us for a much more direct drive down. As you can see by the umbrellas, the rain deterred no one.
*From Nürnberg in only 4.5(+) hours and via two trains and two buses. King Ludwig was pretty into solitude.
