The people were very hospitable, and so very patient with me as I made every effort to learn how to pronounce words in German (I was unable to master the difference between "u" and "ü", though I did learn that the "ß" character sounds nothing like a "B").
At any rate, the region lent itself to some beautiful photography opportunities. Here are my favorites from the trip:
All photos were taken on my Olympus OMD EM5; RAW files were processed in Lightroom.
