Green water I saw in Austria. There is a place called Grüner See. It is a lake in Styria, Austria in a village called Tragöß. The lake is surrounded by the Hochschwab Mountains and forests. The name “Green Lake” originated because of its emerald-green water.

It’s hard not to feel connected to nature here. I mean, we’re living in Helsinki, a relatively big city, and you can hardly go from one place to the next without passing a park, walking through a forest, or catching a glimpse of a body of water. It makes it feel like you’re not in a city at all.

An oasis in the heavily forested area of rural Belgium, Bouillon sits proudly on the edge of the river Semois. You won’t have to drive far into the town before catching a glimpse of the magical Bouillon Castle, which has presided over the streets below since the Middle Ages.

Lake Saimaa is one of the best places to see the unique greens and blues of the Finnish countryside. The colors of summer. You can go swimming or rowing in the lake, before heading to the surrounding forests for some hiking… or maybe even find some wild berries, which are plentiful in all of Finland!

Perched at the top of the hill and surrounded by rolling green valleys and leafy forests, stands the majestic Neuschwanstein Castle. You can see why King Ludwig wanted to build his palace here, away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Killarney, maybe our favorite destination in Ireland. Why? First, the beautiful town in set at the doorstep of a national park with great forests, mountains and lakes for you to explore. It also has some of the best nightlife in the country, boasting many pubs for you to hear some great music. It also is the gateway to the Ring of Kerry, which is a driving route along the coast with some of the most spectacular views.
