If you ever find yourself in the southwestern part of Germany, stop by the Black Forest. Please. You won’t regret it.
It’s rumored that if you venture into certain parts of the Black Forest, the density is such that the sky cannot be seen; any ray of sunlight being completely enshrouded by the thick trees. As the photos show, Kaitlyn and I never made it that deep into the forest, but rather wandered around at the edge of it instead.
We also walked around the lake, Titisee (pronounced tee-tee-zay), which was absolutely breathtaking. We even rented a boat and paddled to the middle of it!
It’s worth mentioning that we invited an Australian guy to accompany us to the Black Forest. We had just met him at our hostel and felt a bit sorry for him, as he was traveling solo and seemed lonely. He accepted our invitation and spent the day with us which seemed well and good until he asked Kaitlyn to lend him some Euros. She obliged him, however reluctantly, and then we never saw him again. So…..if you’re reading this, Australian-guy-we-met-at-the-hostel, Kaitlyn wants her money back.
But yeah, the Black Forest is amazing and Titisee isn’t so bad itself! I recommend the both of them as sights to be seen, for sure.
