Munich and BMW Open - Bavarian Alps Tour

I got an amazing few days to enjoy Bavarian food, culture, and the outdoors. This stop-over trip in Germany was the 2nd European Spring in a row.

Got to fly on the new Luftansa flight from San Diego to Munich direct. On my way to Spain to attend the Madrid Masters 1000 ATP/WTA event, I decided to make the most of this pitstop!


I drove South through the AutoBahn in a BMW 4 Series diesel. Petrol stations are interesting!

Arriving in the Alps, I stayed at an Airbnb cottage in Garmisch with a nice mountain sunset view for a few nights. The warm glow of morning greets you eagerly for nature's adventures.

I also highly recommend exploring the Gorge in Garmisch-Partenkirchen with its scenic waterfalls!

The short rain made for more dramatic photos! With overcast skies as I hiked down to the valley gorge.

Fussen - a Storybook Fairyland town in Europe with painted walls of magic.

Knowing life's red and yellow lights eventually turn green.
May you all discover your life's 2nd Mountain. Good luck!

Greenlights by Matthew McConaughey (2021)
This journey was inspired and narrated by Matthew's audiobook
"Catching green lights is also about Timing, the world's timing and ours. 
It can also be about sheer Luck and Fate. 
Navigating the Autobahn of Life in the best way possible. 
It's about getting Relative with the Inevitable at the right time."
