These unusual pictures of Germany bring back such wonderful memories of the wonderful people and places I've visited, including some of the foods I've enjoyed along the way.
I've been asked to share my pictures of Germany, so I'm going to be adding more and more as I go through my 'thousands' of photos and do some major editing. Keep coming back here as I get a chance to post them.
I've only been traveling to Germany for the past six years, but have managed to travel through most regions in that time. Although I was born in Germany, my parents immigrated to Canada in 1953 when I was just a toddler.
My only memories are ones that were kept alive by my parents through pictures. Now, that I've had a chance to actually see Germany myself, I can understand their longing to return.
Sometimes it's the food. Other times it's just being surrounded by others who speak the same language, Mostly, though, it's being able to visit with family and friends.
Check out this page for a map of Germany. You'll see that Germany is divided into sixteen states or 'Länder' which also include several city-states.
As I go through my photos, I'll be able to post some from each region. As always, I try to focus on the foods, in this case, the regional foods. I certainly love the challenge when I'm in Germany to check out the various eating establishments. I just need to remember to get out the camera before diving into the food :)
