My motto? Spontaneous trips are the best! Unexpectedly I did a one-day stopover in Austria’s beauty Salzburg before heading to Germany for the Christmas days. A soft line of pastel mountains awaited me right at the airport early in the morning. The perfect start for a city tour! Salzburg surprised me with a merely endless amount of picturesque buildings – from a bus stop to the dome. And as the weather could not have been any better I hit the road up to the fortress, enjoying a breathtaking view over Salzburg. And of course, I also had to try some traditional Kaiserschmarrn, an Austrian dessert I hadn’t had in some ten years. When the sun began to set, I strolled the old-fashioned, rustic shopping streets – with famous Getreidegasse leading the way. Some sunny hours and many strolls later it was time again to take the plane back to the north with the Alps in my back.
As you might know already, every now and then I need a little weekend getaway. Sometimes I think I can’t stand still and in these times hitting the road makes me the happiest. This weekend the road led me to Rockanje on the coast of Holland, only one and a half hours away from Amsterdam. Since I work for a travel agency, getting inspired by lovely places and accommodation comes with my job. Some weeks ago I couldn’t take my eyes of charming Badhotel Rockanje, an American/Canadian-style cottage hotel in the midst of Holland. The perfect place to get a little cozy before Christmas! And even though the weather did not mean too well this weekend, some fresh breeze from the sea and sand under your shoes can’t be wrong.
