While I absolutely love to travel everywhere. But I would always prefer the Mountains to the Beach. I just absolutely love those beautiful, rugged Landscapes.
While the Harz is technically a Mountainous Area, most of the Mountains here a covered with loads of Trees.
And while I absolutely love the Harz, especially the more Rocky Areas, I do prefer really Rocky, Alpes like Mountains.
The thing is that I have not been to the Mountains out of the Harz in such a long time. And I absolutely do miss them. In the Mountains, everything is small, except for the Mountains themselves. And I absolutely love that.
My favourite Mountain Range that I have been to so far is definitely the Cariboos in British Columbia, Canada. They are Part of the Canadian Rockies. When I worked at the foot of Saddle Mountain back in 2014/2015, I always had the Mountains around me, and that was awesome!
Back then I was a Dishwasher for a Helicopter Skiing Company, and at one day, they had offered a Helicopter Tour for Staff only. Off course I took the Opportunity and went on the trip. Seeing the Mountains from above was even cooler than seeing them from below. I would definitely recommend you to take a Helicopter or even a small little Cessna over the Mountains. It is just so absolutely stunning.
Mountains also look extremely beautiful and somewhat mysterious when they just slightly peek out of the Fog. While I would not want to get lost in the Fog in the Mountains, it sure makes for interesting Photos.
Do not get me wrong, I love the Mountains we have here in the Harz, but I do miss the Capital ones. And by that, I mean the Mountains that do not stop at 1000 Metres in height.

Well now there’s a thing: I live in the Cariboo, BC!
We get many German tourists here. I once asked one why he came halfway around the world for a vacation. His reply was that it looked much like Germany, only it’s cheaper.
I can clearly see the resemblance from some of your photos, and feel truly sorry for you about the “cheaper” aspect as it’s pretty darn expensive to live here!

I lived in Blue River from November 2014 to March 2015 to work as a Dishwasher. And I thought it was pretty darn pricey to live there. Especially since the only store pretty much charged 50% extra on everything.
Any of the “tourist” areas are expensive, often on a seasonal basis (we watch our prices rise in Summer). For example Whistler is a town no one can afford now. Blue River is about the same latitude as where our cabin is, but we are more central BC.

I can definitely imagine that. People charging what the tourists pay, and not considering the people who actually live there. Happens everywhere.
