I am currently scouring my hard drive for old, unpublished images. So today is followed by a slightly longer blog entry with lots of pictures and my latest feature: interactive maps!
In 2014 I somehow took more photographs than I thought :-). And apparently I also did not edit much in 2014 and therefore never published the pictures. Whatever. But now I’ve thrown a little Lightroom and Photoshop to bring “order” to my photo collection.
In 2014, my travels focused on Europe.
Where I was everywhere, you can see in the map below. If you click on the red icons, you will also come directly to the corresponding 5bp galleries. If you scroll further down, you will see some impressions and a little text about my travels.
Walberla – Streitberg – Bing Cave (April 2014)
At Easter, I was active in Franconian Switzerland. The destination was probably the most famous mountain of the Franks: the Walberla. Afterwards we went to the castle ruins Of Neideck and to the Bing cave in Streitberg.
Regensburg and Walhalla (April 2014)
Later in April I took a small trip to Regensburg. On the return trip, of course, a visit to the Walhalla could not be missed. Unfortunately it was already closed, so I could only take a few outside shots.
Neuscharfeneck – Hohe Loog (May 2014)
In May, I took a week’s holiday on the wine route in the Palatinate. A wonderful area to hike and enjoy. There are many castle ruins here that invite you to discover. The Hohe Loog is also always worth a visit.
Fleckenstein – Citadel Bitsche (May 2014)
From the Palatinate we also made trips to neighboring France. Here we were first on the beautifully designed castle ruins Fleckenstein and then on the citadel of Bitche. In the citadel there is a really worth seeing multimedia show, which brings you very vividly closer to the history of the citadel.
Rothenburg o.d.T. (July 2014)
In the summer I was a weekend in Rothenburg ob der Tauber. This medieval town really has charm and invites you to come back. Especially in the evening in summer, the many beer gardens under the historic buildings invite you to linger. If the sun is still laughing, then you can make yourself really comfortable (Unfortunately, my hotel room was directly above a pub, and there it was unfortunately quite running until late into the night…).
Dresden (September 2014)
In September, we went to Dresden for a week. One of the most beautiful German cities ever (far behind Hamburg, of course!). We still had really nice autumn weather and made some excursions (Meissen, Saxon Switzerland, etc.). We also rode the suspended railway and were able to catch a glimpse of Dresden from above.
Trier (October 2014)
In October, I took a short trip to Trier. In the best autumn weather we were able to explore the oldest of all German cities. The highlight was a guided tour of the old amphitheatre and its catacombs.
Luxembourg (October 2014)
From Trier, we also took a small trip to Luxembourg. A tiny but very nice country and a great city.
More pictures and reports can also be found in the travel category. Just take a look!
