I guess you were excited. You must've gotten to the Welt before they opened. It's still dark in the lounge!

Nice car. Where are you headed?

Post Post Return Compliance (More Pics)

Back stateside, and still acclimating to non-autobahn speeds (so oppressive).

Still offloading photos from the camera (have tons), but pieced together a few to post.

BTW: Thanks to this board for all the help throughout. First BMW / First ED... Start (planning/purchase) to finish (return) was only 6 weeks. Would not have been as memorable without the help!

Thanks! That depends on your definition of a photographer.... purchased my first non-cellphone camera for the trip. Made an effort to capture some nice shots and mostly happy with the result.

That morning in the black forest.... those photos barely capture what was like in person, but agree, a pretty special one. Thanks again!

The mountain top photos take your breath away. The photos with your car and the filtered light through the trees look like a BMW advertisement. Nice Job. Thanks for sharing!

Thanks! I've gotten the "advertisement" comment on that one particular photo about 5 times already.... maybe I should send it to them. You guys let me know if you see it on any billboards near you

Well worth the wait to see those gorgeous pictures. Looks like you took the trip of a lifetime. You hit all my favorite places - Trier is especially awesome in my book. Hope you sample the local wines. They are too sweet for most, but my family loves them almost as much as Bavarian beers.
