There is this mountain called The Wendelstein. It's in German Bavaria. To get to it, you just go some kilometers south of Munich, to the Roseheim District, and park your car in a little small parking area near the quaint village of St. Maragarethen.
You will see the Wendelstein from miles away as you near it. And what makes it so unique, so wonderful, is that from its summit, it offers breath taking vistas and views of the Alps and of the valley below. It is very exposed and because of this, its unobscured views are the reason it has been a favorite of Germans and tourists for hundreds of years. And I walked up that mountain.
Girona is a city in northeastern Spain of nearly 100,000 inhabitants and is steeped in a rich history that dates back to 79 BC. It is the capital of the province that shares it name (Province of Girona) and is located just an hour northeast of Spain’s second largest city, Barcelona. The diversity, historical significance, and beautiful panorama makes this area of Spain an ideal destination for a vacation.
When we think of Europe, we are typically focused on the larger, more notable locations like London, Paris, Berlin, Amsterdam, Austria, Rome, Venice, Lisbon and Madrid, to name a few. However, along with these destinations comes the stress of getting around and seeing the sights in overcrowded conditions and extremely heavy traffic. Logistics can be a nightmare, and if not planned flawlessly, your trip can quickly turn into a nightmare.
One of the many beautiful, natural wonders of nature is when rays of sunshine find their way through the clouds and brighten up the horizon. It is a magnificent sight and comes with a calm. To me, it used to signify that the storm was over. The clouds were breaking apart and we were in store for a wonderful day. But today, when I see those rays fall to earth, it means so much more.
