We’ll be honest. Considering this was our first time to Europe, we’re pretty sure we nailed it. Wouldn’t change a thing. The Alps Tourism Commission sent us on a highland adventure through Austria, Germany and Switzerland. We drove fast cars, flew drones, drank really good Grüner Veltliner, took 100 timelapses and came out the other side all kinds of inspired.

We didn’t meet Arnie Schwarzenegger, or any of The Sound of Music cast for that matter, but what we did meet was a part of the world so beautiful it knocked the breath from our lungs and filled up every camera card. Impossibly green, it’s a place where the clouds dance and the mountains sing with history. It’s a photographer’s dream.
