Konstanz

I had the opportunity to see a little bit of Switzerland and one of the most southern parts of Germany this month. The first time in my life I saw the Bodensee (Lake Constance) and its town Konstanz, located directly at the swiss border. I had the chance to be interviewed for a job there and took out my tiny travel cam again and shot photos. Konstanz has one of the most beautiful old towns I ever saw in Europe.

Limburg an der Lahn

In the middle of April I spent an afternoon in Limburg an der Lahn. The city is very small, it seems everyone knows everyone. A few historic streets have been preserved and I really liked this romantic old town. These are very small historic streets where in the evening the restaurants, taverns and bars are open, during the day many small shops and boutiques let the people rummage and the small places and houses that have been renovated and where you live instead of letting them expire , Scenic, the region around the city is just beautiful. You drive one hour from Wetzlar, my current place of work by train to Limburg. The route runs through meadows, fields, always along the river Lahn along the picturesque waterfront and you even pass some tunnels. The landscape with many valleys, valleys, hills fascinates me.

Limburg is definitely worth an afternoon to explore ...

I always dreamed about moving there, living in a small house in the old town, having a small photo store and shop in one of the houses. It is a dreamy city, inhabited by many artists, creatives and inspirational people.

Leipzig - Buildings of the Old Town

Leipzig's city center is just beautiful. I am approached almost daily by tourists, where this or that is to be found. Especially beautiful is the architecture of the houses, merged with many modern houses next door. Hardly any other city has restored its buildings of the turn of the century and earlier as beautifully as Leipzig.
