Well, by now it’s almost over again. But I sent out my father to take some photographs for you to enjoy the feast of colors for a little bit longer. Unfortunately, he doesn’t venture very far from home (I hope I don’t get the same disease or whatever it is when I’ll be old myself), so all the photos are from the Upper Palatinate and the Bavarian Forest regions in Bavaria.
Because this is Bavaria, there must of course be castles, ruins and Medieval fortifications.
The rivers and lakes are perfect for a walk or for relaxing with a book and a cigar at this time of the year. There is still sun (on some days), but the mosquitoes have already disappeared.
And you can find mushrooms in all colors and sizes.
I knew that my home county of Amberg-Sulzbach had a partnership with Argyll & Bute in Scotland and that there was a student exchange, but I didn’t know that there is also a cattle exchange.
And when the weather and the mood turn more gloomy, there are always cemeteries, like the Jewish cemetery in Sulzbach-Rosenberg.
By the way, one of my father’s books about the Upper Palatinate region has also been published in English.
