2019-07-14 BIKER IN BOLZANO

By |2019-07-13T16:45:59+01:00July 14th, 2019|Italy|

We came back from Merano by train. It was already evening when we went out of the railway station. On the way to the hotel, we were exploring the streets of Bolzano, where I shot the last photos, before going to bed after the 12-hour trip.

2019-07-08 LAKE COMO

By |2019-07-07T20:42:39+01:00July 8th, 2019|Italy|

Como achieved fame through George Clooney’s residence in the area. Maybe that was the reason that my wife Karin suggested spending a few days in Como. After a 10-hour drive by car, we reached the city. The first evening we had to go for a walk on the lake promenade. There I was able to shoot photos of Lake Como in the evening colors.

2019-06-30 THE ITALIAN BAR IN COMO

By |2019-06-29T16:29:27+01:00June 29th, 2019|Italy|

Italian bars with Campari, Averna, and espresso. My favorite drinks in Italy. Bars and restaurants surround the main square with the Duomo in Como. Some very touristy, others with the Italian flair and Campari bottles in the display. I chose this one to spend my evening.

2019-06-24 WALKING THROUGH BOLZANO IN THE NIGHT

By |2019-06-24T06:21:32+01:00June 24th, 2019|Italy|

The markets and shops have already closed, you can still see on the sidewalks and streets remnants of the busy life during the day. The houses are lit and occasionally night owls go back and forth between the bars and wine pubs.

2019-04-24 THE TEMPLATE FOR ASSASSIN’S CREED

By |2019-04-24T19:28:48+01:00April 25th, 2019|Italy|

The first thought when I walked into this courtyard was that the developers of Assassin’s Creed went over here and got the ideas for the design of their buildings. My son Maro would have enjoyed it, he played all parts of Assassin’s Creed and is a big fan of the game. A good reason to visit Verona. 🙂

2019-04-23 THE BRIDGE WITH THOUSANDS OF BRICKS

By |2019-04-22T20:22:31+01:00April 23rd, 2019|Italy|

My wife Karin and I rented a motor-scooter in Verona, to get the Italian feel of driving through the city and stopping at interesting points and espresso cafes. The bridge of the photo we saw by accident, a small line was standing to get to the attraction. The Castelvecchio Bridge is nearly 700 years old, built in 1354-1356. With a length of 120 meters, the builders must have used hundred thousands of bricks to build the walls, the way, and the merlons.

2019-04-09 CINQUE TERRE FROM THE SEASIDE

By |2019-04-08T21:55:34+01:00April 9th, 2019|Italy|

I was driving with a “tourist”-motor boat, where I had to navigate the motor with a hand-rod. My wife Karin was sitting at the front. Though it was an imbalance, with my weighty body in the back of the boat, however, after a 20 minutes drive, I was out on the sea and shoot some photos of Cinque Terre from the seaside. Then I placed the anchor, jumped into the water and did some rounds of snorkeling.

2019-03-23 WAITING FOR THE WATER BUS

By |2019-03-22T22:29:33+01:00March 23rd, 2019|Italy|

I shot the beautiful sunset while waiting for a water bus at the Lido di Venezia. Hence life never gets annoying as a photographer. Most of the people waiting were looking at their smartphones, again and again. I was walking around and shot photos from the sunset, the horizon with Venice city far away, the Laguna with the boats and water buses. I ended with about a hundred unexpected pictures in my collection, which I photographed around the water bus station.

2019-02-17  THE BEAUTIFUL GARDENS

By |2019-02-13T20:51:58+01:00February 17th, 2019|Italy|

Merano with its Trauttmannsdorf Castle and the beautiful gardens are the top attraction of the city. Since it’s a bit outside, best to get there is with an E-bike. My wife Karin and I have rented the bikes at the railway station. The good thing was that with the Bolzano-card the train between Merano and Bolzano is free. With air condition and wifi in the wagons, I can highest recommend Trenitalia.
