7 things to do in Nassfeld, Austria

•••
These past weeks, I've been feeling like a robot. The same routine every day: going to work, doing sports, writing university applications, eating, waiting for him to call and not sleeping enough. I'd been having  headaches on the daily and my motivation was on its very lowpoint. It was exactly the moment when a travelette knows just what she needs to do: GE[...]

Above the clouds - Mountain Panoramas of Switzerland

•••
"We all live under the same sky, but we don't all have the same horizon" is what Konrad Adenauer once said. I am always amazed with the beautiful view above the clouds, be it while sitting on an airplane, climbing up a volcano or going on a ski trip. There is always a certain calmness, which makes you feel free and happy. As I have recently been on a ski [...]

We flew into Zurich and from there got a rental car which we drove to ski paradise Laax, then self-proclaimed city of lights Lucerne, then on to a small but wonderful place called Adelboden and[...]

Oetz Valley, Austria - Vertigo is the way to go

•••
In my mind, Austria was all about Heidi, Yodeling and hot ski instructors. That being said, I had never been to Austria before  last month, when the Travelettes headed down to charming Innsbruck to attend the Travel Bloggers United conference, followed by a blog trip to Ötztal Valley in Tyrol.  After the chilled town of Innsbruck, we were all pretty stoked a[...]

Topfen, a Recipe from the Austrian Alps

•••
This winter as I braved the elements across Europe, I settled for just under a month at a dairy farm a little ways out of Salzburg in Austria. I woke up every morning at 5am to help milk to 30 or so cows, spent the day doing tasks around the house, playing with my hosts’ son, taking small walks in attempts to glimpse the Alps through the fog, and desperately[...]
