Germany’s tropical islands

What was to be a 30minute stroll and picnic, in flip flops in the late afternoon, turned into an 8km walk and swim around the lake until the darkness, and frogs, came out to play. Take your time to soak in the mountains; the entire walk is well worth it.

There was nowhere to go but everywhere, so just keep on rolling under the stars.
