Celebrate winter season with a ski trip and road trip planning for the coming spring

We are right in the middle of the skiing season in Europe. As we pack our snowboards, skis, and warm clothes, the ski slopes are opening up in the Alps and in Scandinavia, as well as in Andorra.

Get ready for your winter sports adventure with a puzzle, such as this true or false quiz about skiing. Also, see if you know some of the ski resorts in Norway with this puzzle. If you are just learning downhill skiing, then these instructional videos might come in handy before you head for the slopes.

Road trip in Bavaria this spring?

If you want to go on a road trip and do winter sports, then Bavaria in southern Germany is a spectacular option. On that note, check out this blog post about cross-country skiing in Bavaria and a nearby must-see medieval town in the Czech Republic.

Recently we also checked out Munich and its Glyptothek, a museum full of antique sculptures. Bavaria is a gem for nature lovers, but as you plan for a road trip in German don’t forget about the quaint villages and nature in Western Germany, around Hesse and Baden-Württemberg.
