A week in Southern Germany and Salzburg, Austria. Waking up to light rain on the window and clouds moving over the mountains. Driving along the base of the Alps as the sun came up. Rolling green fields meeting hills of yellow and orange leaves. Every building in every town perfectly maintained. People moving like clockwork. Gardeners, sweepers, repeaters. Beer from breweries making it the same way for 500 years. Sausage, potatoes, sauerkraut. Beer. Cows that I swear they've been giving baths to. Cobblestone streets and church bells. Castles that put Disney to shame. Overlooking the city and imagining life a thousand years ago. Warm candlelight. And beer.
