A Day At The Lake

17 Jan

After weeks of gray skies and snow, the sun is finally back. It may be a bit too early to head to the beach, but while passing through the southern Bavarian city of Prien last weekend, I did make it out the region’s largest lake – Chiemsee.

Halfway between Munich and Salzburg, this large lake lies at the foot of the Alps. On a warmer day, I would have gladly taken a dip in the crystal clear waters. However, with temperatures barely above freezing, I opted for a relaxing walk and soaked up some winter sun. The lake is officially known as the Chiemsee (“der See” is the German word for lake), but as the region’s largest lake, it is also sometimes called the “Bavarian Sea.”

As always, here are a few pictures to boost your imagination!



Würzburg, One Last Christmas Memory

29 Dec

After weeks of fun and glühwein, the time has come to take down the tree and put the decorations away for another year.  Before looking on to 2011 and preparing for the changes a new year always brings, I wanted to share these pictures of the last Christmas market I made it to in Würzburg.

In spite of the gray rainy skies, it ended up being one of the best Christmas markets I visited; the perfect place to find a few last minute gifts or just relax and enjoy the Christmas spirit.
