Setting at a steady pace

I was feeling like ending this beautiful day in a good way, enjoying the last rays of sunshine, before driving back home. Not a lot beats sitting at a quiet place with sun heating up your body.

Just beware when parking the car during tourist season: the parkings at the Loreley site … Continue reading Katz und Maus
