Which to Choose? Austria or France for Skiing

Both Austria and France have a long history as excellent ski destinations. Since the 1970’s France has been the most popular destination for ski holidays due to its vast ski resorts with numerous facilities. However, Austria is growing in popularity due to its low costs and fantastic apres ski. This guide helps you pick the best ski destination to suit your individual needs.

Why Choose Austria?

One of the main reasons people are choosing a ski holiday in Austria is the price. The costs of a ski holiday can quickly add up, with equipment rental, ski passes, food, alcohol, flights and travel insurance. Austrian ski holidays are significantly cheaper than those in France, allowing you to enjoy your holiday without having to think about your bank balance.Read More »Which to Choose?

Google Analytics Conference at the Schönbrunn Grounds (and testing full-frame format)

 The leaves around Vienna turned red, brown and yellow and it’s my perfect excuse to be out and about and take photos of nature’s changing colors.  It’s also my first time to test the new camera, so I had double the excuse. ^_^

What perfect spot to take photos of than the Schönbrunn palace and grounds? Well, I had planned to visit anyway because I learned that Google will be conducting a conference, about analytics – what a blogger like me should learn about more. Sad to say, aside from not having a regular nanny to take care of the kids, I can’t really shell out a big amount of money, just like that. Tickets cost for early birds: € 290,- 1 day / € 580,- for both days. (List Price: € 390,- / € 680,-) !!!

So yeah, I went but perennially late me came up to the lobby only to get some information about the day’s event and what could be tomorrow’s. So lame!

Some time ago we got to visit the enchanting city of Salzburg, Austria’s fourth largest city. It’s a three-hour ride from Vienna and as usual we did the walking when we got there…going through streets here and there, taking photos of whatever we see and of course buying souvenirs for us and friends.

Vacation started around here and so we went to a nearby city over the weekend. We were planning to visit Bratislava, Slovak’s capital city but decided on the last minute to visit Salzburg instead. Mozart’s birthplace and the home of the sound of Music.
