After a business trip to lake Starnberg last week, I had the chance to spend a couple of days with my parents. Since a little bit more than 4 years they call the Allgäu region in southern Germany their home. Especially in early summer the Allgäu is more than beautiful: Rich green meadows, grazing cows, breath taking mountain views, herbs and blooming wild flowers. A landscape bursting with life, colors and various tastes (and wonderful cheese!).
