      Thank you, Richa!

  • What a bucket list this is! Those photos are lovely. We once drove down the length of Germany – from Berlin to the South of France – and I was amazed just how pretty and green it was (and that was without stopping at these pretty towns and cities) so I would like to go back and make some of these stops on your map.

      I was debating on that one as well 🙂 And I’m sure other people agree with you as well, but my favorite ones are definitely the three I mentioned 😀

  • My brother is gonna study in Germany for his masters and I cannot wait to visit him. I have pinned this post and use this as a guide. I love the little map you have provided on the top. Such useful information. Many thanks for this one!
