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,…

Fall foliage in the Pocono Mountains

Pocono mountains fall foliage

Pocono mountains, you may wonder where they are? After some research about the best locations for viewing the autumn/fall foliage or Indian summer I came across this rural gem in Pennsylvania, only a two-hour drive from NYC but worlds away.
