Austria, summits and a changing mind

These photos are showing the Zugspitze. When I were camping at the foot of this majestic mountain and it got dark, the light, clouds, stars, sky and the mountain itself got even got even more magic. For me these photos stand for a beginning and a ever flowing, magical change.

I’m now in Italy and my time in Austria will always be the beginning of this new journey I’m on. I visited western and central Austria and for me these areas between the Alps are so much different than what I’m used to know from nothern Germany. I think I learned a lot about “it’s not always everything possible, it does not have to be and there is nothing wrong with it, let’s see what happens next”. I don’t know what triggered this in me. Maybe it’s the dependency on the snow or the absence of snow and the change this region undergoes in winter times. Or the more restricted way you can drive around because there are mountains everywhere.

I’m very grateful for everything I have experienced in my time in Austria: the nice and interesting people I talked to, the exciting pass roads, astonishing landscapes and especially the summits and there magic.
