Monthly Recap: October 2018

October is usually the month of wonderful autumn colors! It was no different this year, Central Europe impressed with all the shades of yellow, orange, red and brown. We had an unusually warm and sunny October, so we spent quite a lot of time outdoors. But the highlight of our month was…


October 2018: Salzburg, Austria

Long weekend in Salzburg. We are always happy to return to neighboring Austria, but it was our very first time in Salzburg. We cherished each and every moment of the 4 days we spent in the city and in the mountains nearby.

October 2018: Königsee, Germany

Autumn foliage at Königsee. Though Königsee is located very close to Salzburg, it’s actually on the other side of the border: in Germany. We spent a day hiking at the lake while enjoying the harmony of its emerald green water and the yellow leaves. We also explored other trails of Berchtesgaden National Park. This park is located in the wonderful Bavarian Alps, and we’ll surely be back in the summer to see even more of it!

Almbachklamm, Germany

Almbachklamm. This pretty canyon in the Bavarian Alps is right by the Austrian-German border, and it rewarded us with astonishing rock formations and pretty waterfalls. It could be even more breathtaking in spring when snowmelt feeds the waterfalls. Ah… we really need to go back. 😛

Coming up in November

November is usually the month we travel the least. It’s cold and all the leaves are fallen by then, so the landscape looks bare and grey. It’s the kind of time when we rather have some tea and chocolate while watching movies at home than go anywhere. That’s the plan for this November, too. 😀 Oh, and writing all the posts about this years’ travels that we didn’t have time for so far.
