A journey back to Middle Earth…

Transit in Dresden

Leave a comment

We decided that Dresden would a good place for a “transit stop” for the ~600 mile journey between Hamburg and Olomouc in the Czech Republic. After a long day of driving delayed primarily by road works, we arrived at the campsite which will be remembered for blowing fuses and a wonky table tennis table.
Maria and I had last been in Dresden in 1999 which we had remembered as a picturesque city which was under significant reconstruction and restoration which we now saw had resulted in a dramatic transformation into a modern yet historically preserved city. Most notably is it’s most famous landmark the “Frauen Kirche” (Church of Our Lady) which was almost completely destroyed in WWII. Nilay & I decided that we would like to go the viewing platform on the tower above the dome (made from 12,300 tonnes of sandstone) where we had great views and a perspective of the whole city.
