We go to the Freiberger Hut Hütte that evening and the hike to get there is quite simple, with a small drop, but nothing more. It’s also very well signposted and you can do it for yourself. This hike is actually the first leg of the famous Lechweg and is located in a national park. Another advantage for small walkers, a bus runs on a road near this hike and others also. You can take it for a while, get close or even close to the refuge and its lake. The road is only accessible for this bus, for local farmers or for tourists paying a fee to enter the National Park, but it is very quiet.
We take the path and the guide explains many anecdotes and interesting facts about the history of the region, the fauna and flora. She knows the area well and is in love with her area. We quickly understand why. Our steps lead us quickly to the lunch we will take at Gasthaus Alpele. The place has been completely restored and was founded more than 300 years ago. The place is charming, traditional and popular and I feel that we will feel good. I can not help but choose Käsespätzle, the homemade pasta with cheese and onions that Sarah taught me to cook and that I sometimes cook while traveling. They are delicious and melting to perfection, the cheese is strong and perfect. I enjoy it. Annalisa chooses the dessert and then arrives a giant pan filled with a kind of apple and plum crumble (Kaiserschmarren ). It’s just to fall. It will be very difficult to hit the road after that.
We take the bus to advance a little and begin the rest of the hike. The weather is threatening, but the weather is nice and we chained the pretty views and other waterfalls. It’s nice to be so, alone in these film landscapes.
After a wonderful stay in Austrian Tyrol last year, I was looking forward to seeing the sights and the Austrian calm for a weekend. This trip coincided with my return to Europe after my PVT in Argentina and would allow me to have a soothing and adaptive break, before returning to France and live the classic blues of return. This time, not from Tyrol, but from Vorarlberg, a rather unknown region of the country, at the western tip, very close to Liechtenstein. The program was simple: discover the magnificent panoramas of the region and hike in Austria, in the region of Vorarlberg.
It is not easy to go to this corner of the world or at least the trip is never really direct. From Madrid to Zurich, I take the plane, then the train to Austria. We go along several lakes and cross sublime landscapes. I fall asleep despite everything, lulled by the train and my jet lag, always present. I wake up in Austria and meet my fellow travelers for the next three days. There is Richard and Franck from One Day One Travel that I know well and Céline, the Globetrekkeuse and his spouse Pierre. A taxi ride and we finally arrived in Lech, an adorable and typical Austrian small town. We take our quarters in a comfortable hotel, overlooking the hills, savor our first beer and our first meal. What a pleasure to find Austria, its beauty of postcard, its flavors and its calm. I would sleep well that night, finally settling my jet lag and enjoying my serene mountain sleep. The trip was long and the adventure begins tomorrow.
In recent months, Japan has put me in my loneliness and this is one of the reasons why I decided to move to Chiang Mai in Thailand. To find a community of digital nomads, to network and just feel more connected with the local community and travelers. But I was luckier than that, since my move coincided with a blogger friend’s trip to Thailand and I had another friend there in Chiang Mai. As soon as I landed in Thailand, I was no longer alone and that changed everything. It’s not just about finding friends, but finding people who have the same job as me, the same aspirations and with whom they can constantly brainstorm, help each other and simply advance. Even though these months have been horribly busy with work, paperwork and other round trips, for the first time in years,
I feel like I’ve put things flat, to have been more productive than ever and to have a direction and an alignment of my projects. Without them, it would not have been possible, so thank you to my incomparable Nastasya of the blog Valiz Storiz and Corinne de Vie Nomade , my rocks, who supported me while I arrived in spare parts of Japan. I also had the opportunity to meet for a night and a guided tour in Bangkok Romain of the blog Thailand and Asia and during a Florine evening blog World Adventure Divers. A friend from Japan was also visiting Chiang Mai and I had my dad visiting Thailand for 10 days on his first big trip. I also spent an afternoon coworking with a Dutch blogger whom I knew by sight. Add to that a flash trip to Austria for a conference of international travel bloggers , where I met many friends and met other bloggers for inspiring and inspiring moments, such as every time I go to a conference of Bloggers and a trip to Kuala Lumpur, where I spent a few days at Pauline’s Graineand you get the picture of very productive, inspiring and rich weeks.
Have you ever wondered, what would it be like if you had only one month to live from the present day? You see death is a great teacher. It reminds you, almost mockingly, that everyone is stamped with an expiration date. Whenever I think about death it provides me a sense of urgency, an urgency to start living. Would you still be working from 9 to 5 throughout the day considering all the amazing, heart warming and delighting things that you can do in that particular time frame and still be left with more time to enjoy with your family?
Won’t you think of doing the activities that call for the brilliance in you, activities that change your perception about life, activities that let you experience the beauty of nature, activities that make you feel good about life? In my opinion one of the few things that elevate the human soul to the peak levels of happiness is traveling. It is the essence of traveling that has motivated humans through ages to seek out for the unexplored and the less trodden paths. Traveling changes the perception of a person about life. It vastly increases the plethora of human emotions and experiences for a person. It shows that life can be much bigger and broader than one can ever think of. The surest way to make more of your life is to become more aware of what’s out there and to expand your definition of what’s possible. The best way to do that is? Travel.
Your problems, tensions, daily issues will vanish after some time and will not be of any importance to you after a point in your life but the experience of meeting and having a lunch with a person belonging to a different culture, experience of watching snowcapped mountains with mesmerizing lakes will not leave your side till your last breath. As Ibn Battuta rightly said – “Traveling is something which leaves you speechless and then turns you into a storyteller.” When you travel, you meet different people, you understand their culture, you immerse yourself into the vibrancies of the beauty the nature has to offer us, and you become someone else. Travel is important for everyone to know themselves at core, to explore and grow themselves into someone who is more wise and experienced. A picture speaks a thousand words. The moments captured in those journeys will stay with you for your lifetime.
Whenever one goes or even thinks about going on a holiday, there is one issue which makes things look like a nightmare. Yes you got it right. I am talking about hotel booking. It scares and haunts travelers beyond their wildest imaginations making them think many times before taking a trip. Any trip seems undesirable without appropriate accommodation and that is something which travelers consider quite difficult to locate. Sometimes even if a suitable hotel has been spotted, the rent specified is so high that travelers tend to forget about it the moment they hear of it.
Traveling becomes such an issue with hopeful travelers due to this reason. Airline tickets too can be problematic. Very often travelers find it quite difficult to get a flight back home in case of emergencies. Any sort of traveling can take up to days of preparation among which many hours are devoted to the airlines. But if traveling is so much trouble, how do we see so many travelers going across the world every single day of the year? Wondering why they don’t face the trouble regarding hotels and airlines? They certainly do have some trouble, but the trick involved in these cases is that they know the right hotels and airline companies’ that promise to deliver.
In every vacation the tourists face some kind of problem or another. These problems are quite often unpredictable and can easily throw you off the track. The thing to do is always make a plan before you leave for the trip. If you have covered up all the basic requirements in the field of traveling, there should be no problem.

They say that from the time of birth to our last breath, every single action revolves around the acquisition of knowledge. And if you are someone who values the learning experience, then traveling is just the thing you need. Traveling will open your mind up to so much more than you ever knew – things that you’ll never find in a book or even in a classroom.

If you are shy or have a problem communicating with people, traveling may be the best thing you can do to improve your communication skills.

Traveling to a new place will allow you to release pent-up tension and live a stress-free life. This, in turn, will help you create memories that you can cherish for life.
