Being a tourist in your own city: The ultimate year-round guide to Salzburg

November 12, 2017
Salzburg best time to go

The hills are alive…. If you’re not from Austria, let me tell you that a minority of my fellow citizens (and myself) never have seen The Sound of Music (am I missing out anything?)

Once upon a time there was big Austrian lingerie company which celebrated its 100th anniversary. On this occasion they wanted to give their costumers a very special present: A free round-trip flight within Europe once you spend 100 Euro or more on their underwear. Of course, as a travel addict this “scam” got me right away not knowing how this campaign was going to fail.…
