  Wannsee, Germany:
This is a picture of the forested area called Wannsee just outside of Berlin. I had hoped to stay in the center of Berlin, but not a single hostel had an available bed. But, never fear, I had something in case of an emergency such as this: a tent! I loved walking through Wannsee. A forest on the left of me and a slowly moving river on the right. Occationally-passing boaters would wave to me as they passed. They seemed equally transfixed as I did on the beautiful natural world which surrounded us.

I took this picture by setting up the camera on the street railing. Gotta love the timer function!
