the bavarian forest

Last week was the first official week of the break. I was relieved to finish all my tests and looking forward to a little trip to the Bayerischer Wald – or Bavarian Forest – which lies in the east of Germany near the Czech Republic. It is a really beautiful area!

We took a long hike that we seriously underestimated (everything looks flatter on a map)! Our 15k hike took about 4 1/2 hours – and we only brought one bottle of water with us – but we had some spectacular views of the area.

I may look happy, but I’m about to DIE at the time this picture was taken!

The nearest town was Regen. It wasn’t anything too special to see, but was a nice small town. We spent an afternoon there, complete with ice cream on the River Regen.
