Germany is a land of boundless natural treasures, from the dreamy coastline of the north to the rugged mountains of the south, and from the marshland and heather of the west to the land of a thousand lakes in the east. Not only do these diverse landscapes offer endless opportunities for discovery, but we are also witnessing a resurgence of wildlife in the country. However, Germany is not just a place of breathtaking scenery and thriving wildlife, it is also our birthplace. It is here that we come to recharge after the demands of our assignments and occasionally take the time to rediscover our home. As enriching as traveling may be, it is important not to overlook the beauty and wonders that can be found in one’s own country.
