While I was on my trip around the world, one day at an airport I stumbled upon a travel guide about Germany and although it was funny to read about the German ways, I realized how little we see of our own country when wanderlust keeps us busy, traveling around the world. Since I never went to Dresden, my girlfriend and I decided to visit the city for a few days and were amazed by it’s beauty.
After two days in Dresden we drove further east into Saxon Switzerland to hike in the sand-lime brick mountains. This is a part of Germany where I definately want to go back to and spend a few days hiking in the more remote areas.
The view from Bastei Rock is stunning – if you can overlook the fact that you are possibly surrounded by tourists.
