Vacation 2013 - part 1: Dresden

For my 50th birthday we planned a nice trip ;-)

On January 29th we went to Dresden (Germany), main goal was a visit to the Karl May museum in Radebeul. I have always loved Karl Mays books. I have read over and over the 50 books translated in Dutch. At the moment I am re-reading some of them again.

It was great to visit the house of my childhood hero. The house is still as Karl May left it. In the garden is a big log cabn with much information about indian tribes at the time Karl May wrote about them.
