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.

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.

Meet me at Lucerne’s Kapellbrücke bridge

En route to Zurich from Bern, you can stop at this Swiss gem of a city. Lucerne (or “Luzern”) is situated in the midst of nature, with its eponymous lake and view of the Alps within it. The city is famous for its Chapel Bridge, a 14th-century bridge which has burned down several times over the centuries, but continues to stay upright.

The aquamarine pools of Plitvice

Sometimes, words don’t do a place justice, so I will keep this brief. Aquamarine pools, waterfalls bubbling over green moss and water shooting down from the earth like a natural fountain makes this park a truly special place.

Summer on Lake Saimaa

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!

Slovenia and its wonders

Calm, peaceful Bohinj is a lake of fantastic beauty, just beneath the mountains with Slovenia’s highest peak, Mount Triglav up above! We loved Bohinj, we swam, we paddled, we relaxed and we took the Cable car up to the Vogel, where one can see the whole lake beneath and Triglav just in front.
