Recently I've been posting batches of photos that I took while in my stay of Bayern, Deutschland (or Bavaria, Germany depending on your linguistic preference). I had mixed experiences there, but the countryside was without a doubt beautiful. I'd seen forests and plains and deserts of all sorts before, but the relentless green was something that was nothing short of breathtaking the first time I saw it. I personally like fog, so whenever one of those lucky foggy days rolled in I made sure to grab my camera and cruise around. A number of the photos I lost (particularly one of a mist-filled gorge that had a very eerie feel on that one particular day), but those left I hope give an impression of the places I once was.
In a sense, those are moments of a journey I took. I'll be honest and say that I didn't enjoy all (or most) of those times, but despite those there were moments that reminded me that not all was down. Even when the flowers wilted away, the fields and meticulously trimmed forests shown with an emerald beauty that I'd never seen before and for some moments forgot could exist.
Some people would say that it was 'out in the middle of no-where' but sometimes it's only away from both the comforts and the bustle of 'civilization' that we can experience the far grander and more breathtaking works that cover far more of the world than our biggest cities. Who knows what treasures lie waiting to be discovered outside our concrete jungles?
