WOW, life has been crazy! We’ve been living in Garmisch- Partenkirchen, Germany for six weeks now and it has been nothing short of incredible. Every morning my mind is blown when I wake up and look out the window. Garmisch-Partenkirchen is nothing short of a dream.
The last time I lived in Germany I spent many days wandering around Garmisch, and being able to do so again has been fantastic. It’s one of those places that seems like it came out of a dream. Mountains tower thousands of feet above the narrow valley in all directions. The Eibsee (pictured below), is just a few miles from us. Scott and I can see the tallest mountain in Germany rising up just outside our window.
If you haven’t considered Germany as a must-see destination before, I hope these photos change your mind. Also, I know this title labels Garmisch as Bavaria’s most photogenic town…but honestly all of Southern Bavaria is similarly outstanding. I can’t wait to explore even more this time around.
As far as life goes, it’s good. Scott and I enjoy our jobs and the people we work with. We love where we live. We bought season passes to ski so we’ve been learning how to do that (so fun to go skiing on lunch breaks!). We’ve found a lot of delicious gluten free food out here. It has just been awesome.
December was really crazy with work, but now that things are winding down for a few weeks, it’s nice to have some time to relax. In a few weeks we will be heading to the Italian Dolomites for my birthday which I’m really stoked about.
As far as “Made in the Mountains Photo + Film”- it’s a work in process to figure out how to get the business legally up and running over here. There are so many regulations. Hopefully I will be able to get everything settled pretty shortly. Whatever comes of that though, we still plan on constantly shooting, investing in photo and video education, and hopefully connecting with fun couples out here so we can build up a gorgeous portfolio of the Alps. We hope our blog can be a resource for those planning an elopement or vacation in the Alps in the meantime. We want to serve you! We’ll be sharing our favorite locations and tips over here, so you can have the day you’ve always dreamed up.
So, for now, here’s a collection of photos from some beautiful places we’ve been to so far.
