Nature’s perfection hidden between the Austrian slopes – The Green Lake

Nature’s wonders are spread all over the world. Wherever you may live, I bet there are few unique wonders nearby. This is an article about a beautiful place in central Europe. We all admire the scenery around the Alps, but beneath this massive mountain range, there is a small lake that attracts thousands of visitors each year. Which one of the wonder is it and what’s so special about it?

It is called Grüner See or the Green Lake. The lake is located in Styria, Austria in a resort village named Tragöß and it is surrounded by the massive Hochschwab Mountains and the green forests. Tragöß is a municipality in the district of Bruck-Mürzzuschlag and it has a long history of large scales migrations. Ancient Celts, Romans, Slavs, Bavarians and Franks inhabited Tragöß throughout the centuries. As settlers, they’ve experienced all the beauty of the waters, valleys and fertile ground that was offered to them by the magnificent nature. Today, the accent is being put mainly on the Green Lake.

Its name originates from its crystal clear emerald-green water thatonly appears as green from the submerged meadow vegetation and the reflection of the surrounding forest. Embedded in a middle of a country park its waters are 1 meters deep during the winter. However, the Green Lake’s maximum depth is reached from mid-May to June when it gets up to 12 meters. This is the period when it looks the most beautiful but in July the water begins to recede again. This happens every year because the Green Lake gets its waters from the snowmelt from the mountains. In spring when the basin of the lake is full, the water temperature reaches out to 7 °C so only the bravest gets to swim in it.

The variety of flora and fauna are in accordance to the environment: lots of snails, small crabs,different species of trout and aquatic insects, trees, bushes and flowers that grow around the lake as much as on the lake bed. After the spring inflow the lake becomes literally an underwater park. This is the main reason the Green Lake is so popular among the divers. They can observe the green meadows, take a ‘rest’ on the bench situated on the lake bed or cross the bridge and all these activities are donewhile diving along the submerged trails. You’ll have a feeling you are in a middle of a glass world.  It’s one of the most beautiful places in Europe for underwater photography. It’s like talking a ‘walk’around a perfectly set park, except this one is all underwater. However, divers must already have a diving license. But if you don’t own one, you can enjoy the hiking and the contemplation of nature. If you are an adrenaline fan you’ll also have the chance to explore the biking trails and go for a fast downhill.

Regarding the accommodation, many guest cottages, inns and hotels are welcoming visitors throughout the year. You can ski around the several ski resorts, cross-country skiing is also available and wait for this – there is an offer for dog sledding as well. All these activities, the tiny lake and the stunning and picturesque natural scenery make the little town of Tragöß one of the most popular holiday destinations in the region. It’s often called the green heart of Austria. If you’re not impressed yet, then you should wander the meadows looking for the Edelweiss flower, the symbol of noble purity. But you’ll be reminded to look but don’t touch. At the end you can visit the Heritage Museum if you would like to learn something more about the history of Tragöß.

Anyway, I’ve chosen my next destination for the exquisite bonding with nature. I should hurry, as the lake is only there for few months each year. I can’t wait to see some of the Europe’s best scenery. Three things are a must on your packing list: sturdy boots, backpacks and a really good camera.

Discover 5 Things To Do In Las Vegas, Nevada

Discover 5 Things To Do In Las Vegas, Nevada

Las Vegas is one of those places that everyone should visit before they die. There is so much to do, not only in Vegas itself but also the surrounding area. Everyone who visits usually stays in one of the casino hotels, so that side of the city is unavoidable, but there are a number of hidden gems that most visitors miss. With so much competition in this city you can find a lot of bargains when looking for somewhere to stay, with some of the hotel casinos only charging around $20 a night. Although the list of things to do in Las Vegas can go into the hundreds, below you will find some of the best ones.

 

  • Red Rock Canyon

If you have hired a car then Red Rock Canyon is only about a 30 minute drive outside Las Vegas, otherwise ask your hotel to arrange a trip for you. The scenery in this canyon is amazing, and the rock colors cover shades from yellow to red, and black to light gray, making a great contrast on a day with clear blue skies. There are many walks in this area, but make sure you take some food and water, especially if it is mid-afternoon. Be prepared to spend at least half a day, although the location is so beautiful and peaceful you may wish to spend the whole day there.

 

  • Enjoy A Gondola At The Venetian

Regardless of where you are staying in Las Vegas you must visit the Venetian. The inside is amazing and they have constructed the shops and canals as they are in Venice, it is a great place for those romantic moments.

 

  • The Bellagio Fountains

These are well-known through the world and are impressive enough during the daytime, but for that extra bit of beauty then make sure you see them at night when they are lit up in various colors. You will be completely mesmerized by this fountain show.

 

  • Hoover Dam

There are a lot of trips going to the Hoover Dam and Lake Mead so ask at the hotel reception and they will arrange it for you. This structure is an amazing piece of human engineering, and standing on it looking down towards the bottom is quite staggering and may even make you feel a little queasy. Lake Mead is also an interesting place, and is a massive man-made lake.

 

  • Stratosphere

This hotel has been around for a while but for the ultimate photo shots of Vegas you have to go to the top of the tower, it also has a fantastic restaurant, but for that little bit of strange, it has some rides available, one of which tips you over the edge of the tower. Then there is the new Stratosphere SkyJump which means you can jump off the tower and fall towards The Strip in a controlled decent, and that has to be one of the most exhilarating experiences you will ever have in your life.

 

Travel Planning: Have A Nice Flight

Travel Planning: Have A Nice Flight

We all like a holiday now and again whether it is somewhere in our own country or going abroad. Those of us who fly to our destinations maybe classed as lucky by some but if the flight proves to be problematic then it can totally ruin the whole holiday, and that is not something we want to happen.
When you go on a road trip you always try and plan everything in advance, but when it comes to flying most people just turn up at the airport half a sleep, discover they are missing something like a passport, some even manage to miss their flight even though they have already checked in. So in order to help you plan for a good flight here are a few tips:

 

  • Do Not Fly Tired

A lot of international long haul flights leave between 7am to 12pm, and if you have a long drive to the airport you may find yourself getting out of bed at 4am, so by the time you turn up you already feel like collapsing. Save yourself this trouble and stay in the airport hotel the night before, you’re already spending decent money on the holiday, so spend a little more and get it off to a good start by having a relaxing sleep before your flight.

 

  • Check In

Always make sure you have your passport in a secure but easily accessible place such as your hand luggage. Weigh you luggage before you leave for the airport, a cheap pair of scales only costs a few dollars and may save you a lot of hassle having to unpack at the check in while everyone else stares at you.

  • Security

If you want to fly through security then make sure that before you get to the airport you have whatever is usually in your pockets in your hand luggage, as well as any belts, chains, and anything else that may set the alarms off. Do not have any liquids in your bags, and always put your laptop in a tray on its own.

 

  • Airline Food

Not everyone likes airline food so buy some chocolate and sandwiches before you board so you know you’ll have something to eat. If you still have the sandwiches when you land throw them in the bin as soon as you get off the flight otherwise you may get into trouble at customs.

 

  • Immigration and Customs

Make sure you have filled out any paperwork that is required before getting to the counter, and always be polite and smile to the immigration officer. If you have said you have no food on the paperwork and you are found to have some then expect a hefty fine and a black mark against your name. If you do have food you want to take into the country, ask customs, that is what they are there for, you are not a food smuggler.

 

  • Taxi

Once you leave the airport and you are going to use a taxi, then always make sure that the meter is on before they drive away, it can save a lot of hassle later on.

What Not to Do On Your Italian Trip

What Not to Do On Your Italian Trip

 

 1. A visit to the Vatican wearing a tank top – You won’t pass through the entrance. If it’s too hot to be fully clothed, wear a scarf or a long-sleeve shirt that you can put on upon entrance.

2. Throw away the schedule – One of the first things you learn in Italy is that, there is time, and there is Italian time. Italian time is elastic, so don’t be surprised if your scheduled tour starts an hour later. Many stores close during lunchtime, and all the shops have two days off during the week.

3. Gondola ride – A ride on a gondola may seem awfully romantic, until you get the bill. A ride like this can cost up to 50 euros, per person, per hour. Better and cheaper option is taking a water taxi. It is a shorter ride, but the cost can be as low as 3 euros.

 

4. Using Google maps or GPS to avoid pay tolls – It may seem like a fine idea, but the southern you go the local roads get worse and worse. So, it is better to pay and avoid the many mishaps that occur driving through unregulated and not maintained roads.

5. Tipping – Tips are not obligatory in Italy. If you haven’t just received the best service in the world, avoid leaving a tip.

The Most Bizarre Things Guests Leave Behind in Hotels

 

We all love going on a holiday, but not many of us anticipate the time to return home. This may part of the reason we often leave behind something in the hotel room. And it’s not all toothbrushes and phone chargers, but some very bizarre items as well. Pre-marital contacts, Vera Wang gowns, a suitcase full of memorabilia of Prince George, are just some of the stuff left behind by the guests of British hotels throughout 2013.  Among the left-behinds there is the pet tarantula Hercules, a great wooden cross, figurines of Indian gods plated with 24 carat gold, an ownership contract for a property worth 2 million pounds, and a cell phone worth 10.000 pounds.

 

 

 

The hotel-chain Travelodge reported left-behind yogurt samples that hadn’t been released on the market yet, and geisha outfit. These were the most bizarre objects that 16 million guests of more than 500 hotels left behind in their rooms last year. All the objects that were not searched for in a period of three months were donated to local charities. Travelodge reported 22.648 left-behind books. The most popular i.e. the most common one was Fifty Shades of Grey.
