Along the Elbe River

A couple of months ago I had the chance to travel to a part of Central Europe I haven’t been to before. The initial plan was to travel around Northern Bohemia in the Czech Republic. At last we ventured into the neighbouring region of Southern Saxonia too, as the borderlands are historically and geologically intertwined. The region is shaped by the Elbe river, one of the longest in Europe. Along the river you’ll find many towns, some are charming and touristy, while others are more industrial in nature (pictures 2, 3, 6). The highlight though is the magnificent landscape shaped by sandstone (picture 5). Climb one of the many mountaintops around sunset and enjoy the great view (last picture).

The City of Augsburg Pt.1

In February of this year I participated in a two-week scholarship program at the University of Augsburg. The weather was surprisingly good and it wasn’t as cold or snowy as I expected it to be, quite contrary first signs of early spring where already in the air by the end of February. As always I enjoyed being in Bavaria. You can’t beat the beer culture and the hearty cuisine there 😉 Not to forget about the delicious pretzels! They are everywhere. Anyway: Some impressions from the streets of Augsburg, the capital of the Swabian part of Bavaria (Western Bavaria).
