  • Hilton Molino Stucky Venice | Waterfront with Amazing Venice Views

     

    Italy was our first destination ever since Corona had put the world on hold. From our Dutch government there are many travel restrictions in place, which leaves very few destinations, all within Europe, open for us to travel to. Early September, Italy was one of the few places we could freely travel to. That plus the fact that we had never properly explored Italy before, made us decide to choose Italy as next destination.

  • Hotel Winkler Sport & Spa Resort | Dolomites Wellness Haven

    I have said it before, travelling the Dolomites and South Tyrol in particular, it often feels like you’re travelling through Austria. It’s the mountains combined with the traditional alpine chalets, and red geraniums hanging from the balconies.

    Arriving at Hotel Winkler Sport & Spa Resort we were slightly confused. It was again a classic alpine chalet we arrived at. We had checked the hotel online, and photos showed a very luxurious and modern hotel. Walking up to the entrance of the hotel, we honestly thought we were at the wrong Winkler Hotel. But then, walking through the entrance it’s like going through a time machine, from traditional alpine to extremely modern and luxurious. Absolutely fantastic!

Don’t forget to some people are forever in a ‘lockdown’ simply because their passport makes it impossible to travel!

    Our first world problems aren’t really a problem, it is just an issue!

  • Nature & Active Hotel Rogen | Oasis of Peace & Tranquility

     

    When we travelled the Dolomites early September 2020, we picked several stops to cover most of the Dolomites from west to east. So after starting the trip in Merano, we made our way east, having our next stop north of Merano.

    A beautiful family-run hotel near the town of Mühlbach, about 50km north of Bolzano and 30km north of the amazing St. Magdalena. We made Nature & Active Hotel Rogen our next stop, which turned out to be a pretty sweet decision.

    Rooftop pools with views over the Dolomites, chirping birds as my wake up call and a brand new hotel were the ingredients that lured me to a little village up in the hills in Bolzano, South Tyrol.
