When Twilight Breaks – Tour of Garmisch-Partenkirchen

When Twilight Breaks Photo Tour of Garmisch-Partenkirchen

To celebrate the release of When Twilight Breaks, I’m conducting a virtual photo tour of locations in the story. Since COVID-19 led to the cancelation of my research trip to Germany, this is a virtual photo tour, with photos from my family’s 2007 trip, photos donated by friends, and stock photos.

Because it’s virtual, I have virtual travel buddies! These buddies participated in the book’s preorder campaign and donated their personal photos. My lovely daughter, Anna Sundin, came up with the idea of virtual travel buddies AND she Photoshopped all the pictures! I think I’ll keep her.

Please see the rest of the photo tour!
