Summer Days Abroad

We spent a few days of warm and rainless summer in the Odenwald Forest near Heidelberg and equally fine days in the Czech spa Marianske Lazne, an old resort dating back to the early 19th century.
To make traveling easier, I left back home the E-5 and got instead a small digicam Samsung WB 750.

In the Odenwald there are traditionally large areas of grassland with dispersed fruit trees

The area is also well known for excellent wine growing

There a many painfully restored 19th century buildings, mostly hotels and spa facilities in Marianske Lazne
