Consider for 2016
'This lady wears slippers when she walks on streams and mountains to listen to her constituents every week. This lady will account for every centavo of the people’s money and publish where it was spent'

Lake Tyrol Braies , Italy
This alpine lake is located in the Val Pusteria nestled in the mountains, like a precious jewel of nature, and the heavenly beauty of this part of Italy just breathtaking.
Its isolated location and its water reflecting the Dolomites overlooking will definitely make it one of the most beautiful lakes in Europe. Not far you open the Alta Pusteria, one of the largest and green all over South Tyrol, a point of reference for tourism in South Tyrol.
The lake, which is often called the "pearl of the Dolomites lakes", owes its origin to the dam landslide.

The Legend of the Lake

In days gone by, in the mountains lived a strange population: the savages. They were not bad, but they look intimidating, they seemed rough and primitive. The savages loved beyond measure the glow of precious stones and gold which were rich mountains. Indeed savages it mined in large quantities.

  One day, some shepherds of the neighboring valleys, arrived in these places to graze their cattle on the beautiful flower meadows that stretched as far as the eye. The savages showed the precious pastors and sometimes presented them rings and necklaces of great value. The shepherds eventually lost the light of reason and, blinded by greed to get to precious stones, began to steal from the savages. They began conflicts and if the savages were stronger physically, the shepherds were definitely smarter and managed to loot a nice amount of precious. The savages, then, to preserve their fortune, dug deep into the ground sources and so it was that between the mountains and the rocks formed a large expanse of water that served to separate the valley of the shepherds from the mountains of the savages. Gold and precious stones were safe.

And during a relaxing trip coffin rowing on the lake, you can recharge your batteries and enjoy the beautiful landscape that surrounds you. And the more adventurous you can also dive into the icy water ...:-)!

Always leaves me breathless

Even though the famous royal castle of Neuschwanstein is visited by millions of visitors each year, you don't have to venture off far from it to escape the flow of tourists. In fact I was surprised how idyllic and natural the landscape around the castle is. I've already posted a photo of the nearby (and lesser known) castle of Hohenschwangau. Here, I wanted to show how both castles are immersed in a truly beautiful area of southern Germany. 
 
I have to thank +Kilian Schönberger for this view, he was probably the first landscape photographer to discover its potential. His amazing photo of Neuschwanstein castle made me look for a similar view as well. Only later, when looking at my photos at home, I discovered that I must have been even photographing from the same exact spot as him. But even for such a busy tourist attraction as the two castles, this spot it's still pretty much unknown.

Reminds me of my past travels around PH
Living on an island in the Caribbean for two years has taught me many valuable lessons I may not have learned living Stateside. In case you aren't currently basking in tropical sunshine like me, allow me to impart some of my newfound wisdom....
