After talking about my three weeks of SPA&TREKKING holidays in THISpost, THIS post and THIS post, today I’ll show you the video of the backstage of my trip and you’ll find an Ire that you’ve never seen before:))))))
Summer Holidays on the Mountains: the Video That Will Make You Change Your Mind About Mountain in Summer!
This is what you’re going to see in the video:
A lumberjack version of Irene on different hiking trails… even when she was exhausted!(Walking for hours and hours… and more hours!)
Spectacular mountain tops: feeling freedom on my skin.
Extreme games: the Zip Lane jumping from the mountain top hanging on a suspended steel cable (OMG!), coming down a slope with go-karts, the alpine coaster and many more.
All the wonderful hotels that we chose for our trip: from the private sauna to the hot tub under the stars.
Oetztal and Soelden. The last part of our “SPA&Trekking” trip has left an an indelible memory inside me because it’s been like going back to the origins, going back in that beautiful region of Austria that two years ago made us fall in love with mountain: Oetztal Valley. A stunning valley, peaceful and quiet full of kind and friendly people who always enjoy a nice chat. A valley made of the greenest meadows, brooks, placid grazing cattles, surrounded by high peaks with white tops also in summer. The sun warms up the skin, the smell of grass, the air is light and pure. But, what makes all perfect is the excellent tourism management that organizes lots of different activities… and there’s no time to get bored.
Oetztal and Soelden: Why We Fell in Love With This Valley (Part 3 of 3)
This summer during our stay in the Oetztal Valley we’ve been guests of Ritzlerhof Hotel in a village called Sautens. When I got here I emmediately understood that who designed this facility had in mind the same concept of holiday that I pursued during these three weeks: a vacation based on the idea of “Selfness” meaning not only physical wellness but also mental, interior, spiritual well-being. Taking a complete care or ourselves.
Mountain Holidays, Not Only Trekking (Part 2 of 3)
Mountain holidays. Have you read the first part of the diary about my trip on the mountains, yesterday? If you missed it you can find it HERE(It’s super juicy!). “And then, what have you done? You’ll say… Well, then we went to Stiria, in Schladming. We heard that it is a really beautiful touristic site, especially for trekking lovers. It’s a nice and lively village with all the comforts. And we verified that it’s as they say.
Mountain Holidays, Not Only Trekking: perennial glaciers, Zip Lane, Go-Kart, Alpine Coaster (Part 2 of 3)
We stayed at Falkensteiner Schladming Hotel. I’ve already stayed at Falkensteiner hotels (twice, HERE and HERE). Every time I’ve had a great time for three main reasons, and I was glad to find all three in Shladming too. First of all, the design of of the facility and the rooms: always refined and in line with the location of the hotel combined with the friendly mood that makes you feel at home. In Shladming, our room was covered in wood, super cozy, with a white bed and extra soft duvets, a big sofa, tartan pattern here and there, a design shower stall with panoramic view and a breathtaking landscape from the terrace. When I entered our room for the first time I started jumping up and down for joy: the real alpine style with a classy touch!!
Summer holidays 2015. When we had to decide what kind of holidays we wanted to do this year, we chose without a doubt that holiday package that I call “Spa&trekking”. By now you should know that in summer I love nature and wellness: all year long I have to “be perfect” (makeup, hair, clothes…) in my urban background so spending holidays surrounded by nature is a perfect way to run away from my routine, relax and take care of my body… on the inside and on the outside. Forgetting of hairstyling and makeup (hair and skin have the right to breath and relax a bit), a total immersion into the slower and peaceful rhythm of nature, a good amount of exercise and delicious food. Again, we chose Austria for our holiday. It’s very close to Italy, and they’re particularly good in term of hospitality and tourism management. And let’s talk about luxuriant nature and the landscapes so different on hills and higher peaks. Besides, in case you miss “civilization” you can visit and discover some wonderful cities like Vienna, Innsbruck, Salzburg, Graz… Needless to say, I’m deeply in love with Austria! :)
Summer Holidays 2015: the Diary of My 3 Weeks of SPA and Trekking (Part 1 of 3)
Our SPA & Trekking tour of Austria started from Stegersbach, in in the East of Austria, in southern Burgenland, few kilometers from Hungary and the city of Graz (a place where sun shines 300 days a year). Here landscapes are amazing: gentle hills, endless fields, fruit trees and cute little houses just like those in children’s drawings: pointy roofs, squared shapes and white fences.
Natale 2014. Ciao bellezze!! Mi trovo qui, in macchina, direzione prima tappa del nostro tour on the go per Capodanno, Lione Francia! Intanto vi scrivo un po’ del mio Natale 2014, come ho trascorso questi due giorni di festa. Innanzi tutto mangiando come non mai, mi sembra ovvio :D Ho trascorso la serata della Vigilia insieme alla famiglia dal lato di Giova (+ la mia) per una mega cena a base di pesce, in campagna, circondati dal fuocherello scoppiettante ed i cagnoloni sotto al tavolo. Abbiamo poi aspettato mezzanotte per lo scambio dei regali: tradizione classica ed immancabile la visione di “Il Canto di Natale di Topolino”. Ormai lo vediamo tutti gli anni, conosco a memoria anche le virgole ma non c’è Natale senza questa nostra piccola tradizione! Una luuunga dormita, colazione a base di pandoro e panettone (per rimanere leggeri) e lo scambio dei regali con la mia famiglia prima dell’arrivo dei miei parenti, nonni, zii e cugini. Mega pranzo di Natale, pomeriggio al cinema per rivedere Big Hero 6 (Che io avevo già visto.. ma siccome mi è piaciuto un sacco l’ho rivisto volentieri con i miei nipotini!) e poi.. e poi ho chiuso la valigia ed eccomi qui, di nuovo on the road! :)) E voi come avete trascorso il vostro Natale?
Natale 2014 vi racconto il mio Natale
Le foto che vedete sono quelle che ha scattato il mio amico e fotografo Giorgio Leone al Falkensteiner Balance Resort Stegersbach, durante il nostro soggiorno in Austria (Vi ricordate di QUESTO e QUESTO post?). Indossavo il look che ho indossato per il mio Natale: un maglione che fa subito tradizione, dettagli di raso e pizzo ed un paio di pantaloni rossi :D Che ne dite? Buon Natale a tutte bellissime!
