    2019 travels in review

    We had a good travel year, last year. We traveled in Europe, mostly the western part. We had trips in The Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, France, Germany, Czech Republic and Spain.

    4 Winter walks in Götzens

    Almost every year we take a winterbreak and go to a ski destination. Not to ski, but to enjoy the snowy landscapes.

One of us stayed with Yuri and the other one explored the surroundings. After lunch we switched, and the other one followed the same route. This way we made 4 beautiful winter walks near Götzens in Austria, before Yuri felt better and could go out and explore a bit with us. Mind you, we didn’t follow specific…
