It’s been quite a while since I wrote the last update in this blog. This was primarily because there is little or no photographic news from me. Nevertheless I want to use the New Year as an opportunity to post at least a few pictures of my trip to Scotland. The trip was already a few months ago, so I don’t want to write much about it, but the photos are nice memories.
Our last trip this year took us to Georgia in October. We had two complete weeks to discover the small country in the Southern Caucasus.
A while ago we spent two days in Grindelwald, Switzerland. The Bernese mountains are world famous and the whole region has a very unique feature: the Jungfraujoch.
After travelling to rather uncommon holiday places like Ukraine, Russia, China and Iran in the last few years we wanted to get a little bit more laid back and we decided to do a small roadtrip through the baltic countries Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia in our two weeks of summer holidays in 2018. To most people these countries still are very uncommon compared to the super popular travel places in southern Europe so I’d like to share some impressions here.
After the few days in Holland we went to Germany’s Ruhrgebiet or as they call it the “Ruhrpott”. This area of Germany is famous for its open-cast mining and steelworks some of which are active to this day.
Being invited to a wedding in the “Ruhrgebiet” in Germany gave us a perfect excuse to take a whole week off.
During the Easter holidays we took – once again – a little trip by train. This time we drove to Genoa on the Italian Mediterranean coast in only six hours.
I decided to create a second post with only the landscape and scenerey shots that I brought home from Portugal’s Algarve coast which is the most southern part of Portugal and one of the most remote places in whole Europe.
While Zurich was still a cold and dark place and after six months of winter became increasingly unpleasant we managed to get a week off and escaped to Portugal.
I recently found the time to visit Florence, Italy. The main goal for this trip was to take some photos of the lovely Tuscany city and escape the cold weather in Zurich for a few days.
