What the fuss is all about in Grasmere

Arriving in Grasmere we instantly fell in love with the place. It was charming, and quintessentially English. A wander around the village confirmed that it was super dog friendly. There were dogs welcome signs everywhere – yay.

Lake Skadar is the cherry on top

A holiday on Lake Skadar (Skadarsko Jezero) provides daily-changing opportunities to try something different, from kayaking and swimming in the lake’s warm waters to hiking in the surrounding hills, visiting local vineyards, searching out secret waterfalls and happening upon hidden beaches.

Being part of the magic at Lake Constance

It is not often I go to a town and explore it completely afresh. No map, no tourist information centre, no research. When I arrived in Lake Constance (Bodensee), it was pouring with rain. The view over the lake was stunning – crisp blue water, pretty roof tops and a tall church spire. It felt like magic was happening up there and that I was a part of it.

Think Scotland think Glencoe

Chances are, when you think of Scotland, you think of weathered old mountains rolling down into a valley, with a stream running along the bottom and green everywhere. If you are, then you’re thinking of Glencoe.

Green water I saw at Grüner See

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.

Snowdonia, a full spectrum for the senses

Snowdonia is known for its wet weather, but variation is the spice of life. On a grim day its moody and then when the sun shines, the region sparkles with crisp clarity. In the summer, the hours are long and in the winter, the peaks are coated with snow.

Pack a picnic and head to Seealpsee

Nestled in-between the cantons of St. Gallen and Appenzell, the Alpstein massif is home to a mountain lake that promises to take your breath away. Climb through the shadows of the pine forests, under the watchful eye of the Säntis’ pyramidal peak, as you make your way to this the pristine lake.

No modern conveniences in Prokosko Jezero

Located 1670 meters above sea level this shepherd town with no electricity attracts tourists during spring and summer. When winter hits, the entire town is covered in snow forcing the inhabitants to take their flocks and reside in towns at the base of the mountain. The scenic mountaintop is perfect for hiking but don’t expect modern conveniences!

Tranquil reflections on Lake Obersee

Obersee is only accessible by boat and there is nowhere to stay once you get there, so we were repeatedly warned that if we miss the last boat, we were stuck on our own! The boat ride was about an hour long and the whole way we were surrounded by amazing views.
