Staffelberg near Bad Staffelstein in Franconia. Once a celtic megapolis, a germanic fortress, and source of quite a few legends, it's a popular hiking destination these days. There's even food up there.

Glass Blower in Altglashütten, a small village in the Black Forest, Germany. While the tools may have evolved, the art remains the same since the mid 1400s. Glass blowers still apprentice under a master for four years, work as cohorts for at least seven, before being considered ready to open their own shops and sit for a master exam.

*What's this all about?*

For the duration of 2016 and 2017, respectively, I'll be hiking an approximate three million steps (2400 kilometers) a year around Germany. During this time, I try to bring the "other" Germany into this collection, augmented by blog posts (mine and others') and occasional photospheres and maps.

*Why?*

By 1999 I'd fallen out of love with Germany and in love with the US. The wide open roads, the deserts, the mountains, the long roads, the sky, and the people. Since 2013 I am attempting to rekindle my love for my other home, Germany, one hike, one couch, one hut, and one conversation at a time.

Follow me around, come with me, share a drink or a quick bite, a joke, or a sigh. By the end of 2017 we'll have seen a lot, you and I, and talked about even more. Maybe, just maybe, we'll even have shared a real drink, in a diner, somewhere off a rarely traveled road, just north of nowhere and east of home.

Downstairs great, albeit a little expensive, drinks are served. Upstairs good food, again a little expensive. Come for the drinks, stay for the atmosphere.

Super gute Aussichten, nicht zu anstrengender Aufstieg. Schwindelfreiheit absolut vonnöten wenn man sich an den Klippen aufhalten will. Klause und Keltenweg nicht vergessen.

Nice, but rather geriatric at times. The sauna is good, the swimming area often overfull and somewhat beset with people who hate being near other people.
