After all of my luxurious travels, several weeks in a tent in cold Iceland was a big change. I needed it – to get away from technology and to be myself, caring only about the things I really needed. And I can tell you, I loved every minute and it’s the best way to fall in love with Iceland, with its astonishing beauty, crisp clean air and dramatic landscapes.
We finally made it! We'd wanted to visit the world famous Caminito del Rey paths (or the King’s little pathway) for many years but, unfortunately, the walkway had fallen into disrepair and was partially closed for over a decade.
After exploring lively and glamorous Lech Zurs, we headed to Alpbach, named “Austria's prettiest village”, and set 1000m high in the Tyrolean Alps, just an hour's drive from Innsbruck or two hours from Munich.
Anywhere our Trip Temptation team go for a holiday, we try to find and experience the best afternoon tea ceremony in the area - especially when we travel to England, the country which is synonymous with afternoon tea. This time we were in the Lake District and we chose a peaceful and tranquil place by the river and mountains – the luxurious Eltermere Inn.
This small, cosy hotel with bright, country-style rooms won our hearts immediately. With its comfy beds, delicious 4-course dinners and homely atmosphere, it’s the perfect place to rest after skiing in winter, or hiking and exploring the Alpine beauty in summer. Its location - 5 minutes by free shuttle bus from noisy, fashionable Lech Zurs in a picturesque little village called Zug - is another plus.
I’ve been travelling ever since a was a child but my first large trip was at the age of 13 when I was sent to live for a couple months to London. This trip has changed me and ever since I just want to see more and more of our beautiful world. Every trip gives me new emotions, charge and strength to keep going further.
