The best (half) day trips in and around Salzburg

December 12, 2017
best day trips from Salzburg

One of my recent articles was a detailed guide about Salzburg, but in my opinion, a trip to Salzburg would be incomplete if you’re missing out the spectacular surroundings of the city. Salzburg is lucky to have some of the most idyllic landscapes on the planet right at its doorstep and there’s dozens of places waiting to be discovered. Even if you only have half day off, it’s easy to venture out and catch a fresh breeze in the mountains,…

Glacier National Park – The Alps of America

September 25, 2017
Glacier National Park easy hikes

Oh gosh, where should I start with this article? The breathtaking mountain views? The crystal clear alpine lakes? The abundant wildlife? I don’t know. All I know is that this place left a huge mark in my heart and memories. And that I want to return one day. Glacier National Park in Northwestern Montana is also called the Alps of America, but it’s much more than that!Β …
