Dense green as far as the eye can see and millions of tiny water drops, much finer than drizzle, that land on our skin. It almost feels a little like in another world, similar to a fairy & elven landscape from Lord of the Rings. But it is much more than just that. Monteverde (eng. the green mountain) is one of the most important nature reserves in Costa Rica. Located at 1300m in the central highlands, the cloud forest is also one of the country’s tourist highlights.
One, two or three kids – not that much of a difference, right? 😇
No, seriously – twins (or triplets or even more …) are and will remain a huge challenge. However with a little bit of humor, life becomes easier and laughing relaxes even the most strenuous days. So here – after more than a year of twin experience – a few encouraging words for hard times, because there are some things where you have a clear advantage as a multiple mom or dad.
Until recently, we knew very little about this area in the heart of the Pinzgau, although the Saalachtal has a sensational mountain range waiting to be discovered. So we start our journey of discovery on the famous Lofer Almenwelt.
Due to Corona restrictions we had a lot of time to explore our own – extremly beautiful -country. Here you’ll find some of the most impressive places you should have seen in Austria, recommended by passionate travellers and bloggers.
Italy has many beautiful and impressive cities, but Matera is different. The city is special in every respect: it’s history to touch on every corner, the scenery casts a spell on you and every stone seems to tell its own story. No wonder, the city has been inhabited since ancient times and, last but not least, the landscape in which it is embedded is what makes it so attractive.
If you come to the Naples area, you will find it omnipresent, the only active volcano left on the mainland of Italy. And whoever hears Vesuvius probably immediately thinks of the fate of Pompeii which is sunk in a cloud of ash in 79 AD. When we set the next destination in the direction of Naples, it was clear that this was a must see on our Italy roadtrip with our three kids.
The Glasenbachklamm, has always been one of our favorite half day trip destinations in the Salzburg area. Close to the city but perfect to immerse yourself in wild, lush nature or cooling down on hot summer days. The spot is also perfect for families with younger kids. Young dinosaur researchers are going to have good fun on the geological path but also it is a very nice starting point for a hiking tour to the famous Erentrudisalm.

The sunny height of the Gruberalmen is an easy, but extremely rewarding hike in the Salzburger Land. It is the perfect tour for a relaxed day in the mountains. It is easily accessible for beginners and also with strollers. The area is a highlight for kids due to the large range of playgrounds, meadows and animals to watch. So the kids are perfectly busy with discovering while the adults can relax, enjoy the stunning views and delicious austrian food.
