The Alps & Europe: Germany
You hop on a train to a quaint Bavarian town below soaring mountain peaks. You tighten your leather boots and hike out of the town, gaining altitude with each switchback. Eventually, tired and sweating, you arrive at an alpine hut where you sit on the porch and sip a cold hefeweisen and soak in the views while waiting for your hot dish of spaetzle. You are in Germany. Life is good.
