Autumn in Germany

I don’t plan on having a lot of words in this post. I could never do the beauty of fall in Germany justice.

Fall anywhere with color changes is gorgeous. I loved that time of year at St. Olaf. It is a beautiful campus, and the palette of trees combined with the limestone buildings was nothing to scoff at. I remember being so homesick for school last fall when I saw pictures all over Facebook of those leaves turning once again.

Spring and fall both bring different kinds of hope to me. Because I identify so strongly as a student, fall paradoxically brings feelings of new beginnings. And usually a strong desire to go back to school. It is fitting for me that we made this total life change heading into the autumn.

I didn’t know what fall would be like here, what trees Kaufbeuren would have. But I was not disappoint. Nor did I ever get the chance to be homesick for a Northfield fall day.

Eventually William and I got our heads together enough, in combination with a nice day, do go out and photograph some of these spectacular views. Of course the pictures do not do justice, but they will give you a taste of the scenery here.

And don’t forget to check out some of our fall picture from Prague! Not a bad sight, either. :)
