The Oasis That Is Aqua Dome

"The Aqua Dome in Laengenfeld in Austria"

“That’s where you will be billeted.” the shuttle bus driver bringing us to Oetztal proudly informed us, pointing to a spanking new complex right in the middle of a valley.

Cue Easy Hiker and I exchanging perplexed glances, silently saying “But that’s so detached from the village.” Well, as a matter of fact it is.

Aqua Dome is an oasis

Almost organically integrated in the valley of Oetz,

Ramp Up The Adrenaline In Area 47

"Hanging out way up there in Area 47 Soelden Austria"

Pump Up the Adrenaline in Area 47 When we were in Aqua Dome during our recent blog trip, we were truly sorry that we forgot to bring any swimwear. In Area 47, this became a handy excuse so as not to have to try out some tricks to land on the pool from a sliding platform at least 10 meters long.

Easy hiking in Austria On the Summit of Gaislachkogl

After attending the Travel Bloggers Unite conference in Innsbruck, we were treated to a blog trip to Oetztal, a favourite Austrian destination for skiers, hikers and mountain bikers. We were meant to relax in Tirol’s spa center, the Oeztal.

While Frau Easy Hiker stayed in the spa/wellness Hotel Bergland in Soelden, I escaped the pedicure and searched me out an easy hiking

SONG LYRICS

(What it says, roughly)

Du lundi jusqu’au samedi, Pour gagner des radis, Quand on a fait sans entrain Son boulot quotidien, Subi le propriétaire, Le percepteur, la boulangère, Et trimballé sa vie de chien, Le dimanche vivement On file à Nogent, Alors brusquement Tout paraît charmant!

Song lyrics

(What it says, roughly)

Hier bei uns im schönen Münsterland, wo ich aufgewachsen bin, es fiel schwer hier wegzugehen und jetzt zieht es mich wieder hin, unsere Flüsse sind noch sauber, kein Ort wo man nicht schwimmen kann, wir treten gern in die Pedale, und das sieht man uns auch an. Im schönen

Muenster Is My Kind Of Town

"Muenster Germany Prinzipalmarkt"

Muenster The world record holder of backwards running is from Muenster NRW. But that is not what makes it worth a detour if you are already visiting Duesseldorf, Cologne, Bonn or Aachen. (Perhaps you’re also on an easy hike in the nearby Hermannshoehen trail?) Muenster is a charming town that is not short on historical significance.

From the Prinzipalmarkt, while having a hearty German lunch, you can look up

Moated Castles and Hiking Trails

"Moated castle Burg vischering in Muensterland Germany"

Moated Castles on a Hiking Trail We’ve “explored” some of the day hiking trails in and around Muenster. Here we showcase some of the highlights Muensterland has to offer on your next hiking holiday in Germany.

More than any other German towns, Muensterland, situated in North Rhine Westphalia, boasts quite a number of moated castles (Wasserburgen). It is a region that is rather flat geographically.

Seaside Hiking In Eastbourne

"Foldable chairs to use by the seaside in Eastbourne"

Anyone for Seaside Hiking? There’s a reason why real estate is most expensive in seaside towns. Who doesn’t love to have the beach a few bounds away from one’s front door? And, of course, for seaside hiking.

Short of living there, most people love to take their summer holidays in seaside towns or at least spend a day or two there while holidaying in nearby cities.

Barely a year old and here I am already choosing my 7 links to highlight, in my case, all about…

Without further ado, here are some of my links all about hiking and holidays:
