Autumn Colours in the Swiss Alps in October

Swiss Alps, Konstanz and Bahrain…

Where to travel in October? Autumn is arriving in Europe and the nature is shining in the most beautiful autumn colours, so this is definitively a good time to explore mountain resorts in the Swiss Alps. It is also a good time to visit Middle East, while the weather is getting cooler…

Shopping in Konstanz by Lake Constance
The small idyllic town of Konstanz, just next to the Swiss border is a great place to make a day visit from Zurich and benefit some great shopping. You can also visit some of the idyllic little cafes having a break with most delicious cakes, bakeries and homemade ice creams.

Sunshine in Bahrain
And if the autumn is getting too cold in Europe, Middle East offers enjoyable warm weather. Discover the exotic Bahrain in the style of 1001 nights… We stayed in the beautiful Banyan Tree Al Areen resort in Bahrain.

A day trip from Zurich to Lindau

Visiting Lindau in Germany

Lindau, Germany: One of the best things of living in Switzerland is how easy it is to travel to all beautiful places. Few weeks ago we decided to make a day trip to Bodensee (Lake Constance) and visit the beautiful island of Lindau, which located in South of Germany, less than two hours drive from Zurich.

The island is very picturesque with its beautiful old town overlooking the lake. There are also many interesting little shops as well as plenty of restaurants and cafes to visit.  The best way to spend your evening is as the locals do; having a picnic by the lake and watching the beautiful sunset…
