I vividly remember the first time I saw the Alps. I had never seen such high mountains before and I was truly impressed. Southern Bavaria has some small rolling hills, and the Bavarian Alps tower over the hills like a wall. Since that first trip, I have returned to the Alps a number of times, with my family, for a friend’s wedding, for Easter. The weather hasn’t been that great, but I have always had an amazing time. This picture is of the village of Speiden. Besides looking a beautiful as a painting, there is also an excellent restaurant in the village. I can’t wait to go back!
