The House of Hohenzollern

The House of Hohenzollern, also called Castle Hohenzollern is a tourist attraction nearby Tuebigen in South Germany. The Castle is located on top of a small mountain and surrounded by thick wood. I was visiting the castle in December last year and wanted to capture the castle wrapped in ice and snow. Unfortunately December last year turned out to be a warm and quite sunny month. But still I was able to take a quite nice picture of this beautiful German Castle. I highly recommend to visit this place and take a guided tour through the castle when you are traveling in Germany.

The Great Wall of China in Jinshanling

Travelling in China without speaking the local language can get quite tiring. Especially if you want to go to a non touristy place like The Great Wall of China in Jinshanling. Jinshanling is a 2 hour car drive away from Chinas capital Bejing. Finding a driver which takes you there for a reasonable rate was almost impossible. The first driver threw me out of his cab after realizing how far he needs to go. The second one didn’t know the way so I had to guide him to our destination. Thank god I decided to enable data roaming on my mobile otherwise we would have been lost. Finally we reached the Great Wall in the late afternoon and were able to enjoy the wall during the golden hour. Unfortunately we couldn’t stay for sunset since our friendly driver told us to be back soon.
