Bavarian-ish daydreams come true
Ok, so Leavenworth, WA has been on my 'to visit' list pretty much ever since I first glimpsed an image of its cute Bavarian-style shopping. I would probably rather be in actual Bavaria (maybe?), but when something looking like Bavaria is discovered within driving distance, obviously I should visit. And yes, it's everything charming that its image promises; shops filled with souvenirs, restaurants with yummy looking menus posted outside for the presumed non-locals, and a busy repertoire of visitors wandering down the sidewalks. It is what I would call, dangerously charming and, I admit, I totally enjoyed it.
