Gass Camp





On the 6th of January 2003, three young, not-so-naive Australians met at Nürnberg Train Station.  Their task: To cover Bavaria, the largest state of Germany, in 5 days, then reach Bremen at the other end of the country. What they experienced defies description - Check out the photos below to see what I mean.
