Now that international travel has become easier, I made my first venture to southern Germany. We gathered in Stuttgart and drove toward Tübingen to explore the old city and a few castles in the area. Next we followed the shore of Lake Constance (Bodensee) to Lindau. Throughout the trip weather conditions were warm and only a few wet days while in Lindau. Driving further into Bavaria we setup in Schwangau to photograph the area around the iconic Neuschwanstein Castle. Our return to Stuttgart provided a day to capture more modern views of Germany.
