Alpine Sports Week, Austria

As you’ll have probably noted from my previous two posts (which you can catch up on here and here), the first few days of were fairly tough for me in terms of mustering up the courage to participate in the activities more suited to an adrenaline junkie than a girl who can barely get behind the wheel of a car (this is a whole other story). However, our final day was to be spent on a Segway Tour, something I was actually excited about rather than daunted and terrified – a first! The strange little futuristic hoverboard type machines had always…

Exploring Tirol by bike!

Day three of our Austrian adventure started with another early wake up call, meeting at the bike shop in the village we were staying (Going, in Tirol) to suit up (once again) and choose our e-bikes. Although many of the more experienced mountain bikers opted for the Average Joe bikes (the normal ones we all own back home), many of those on the trip decided to try out an e-bike simply because they hadn’t ever ridden one before, me included. Little did we know, they’d be saviours for the rough, rocky and steep journey ahead with ‘eco’, ‘tour’, ‘sport’ and…

I’ve worked with the tourist board on a number of amazing trips and so if that…

Day Three After another fantastic breakfast at the hotel, Max and I decided to head towards the canal for a casual day of people watching and good food. Our good intentions (to walk for 45 minutes up and down the quiet canal) quickly faded as we sniffed…

Vienna – Something For Everyone!

When planning a trip abroad, there are a variety of factors that we consider, depending on who we are travelling with, how much of a budget we have and what we want out of a trip. Admittedly, it is difficult trying to please everyone (and most of the time you won’t) but it is worth asking for recommendations, because word of mouth, blog reviews, sometimes Trip Advisor and articles are the very best way to find and research your perfect holiday. Recently, I had the pleasure of visiting the beautiful city of Vienna, in Austria and was pleasantly surprised at…
