Slovakia’s snowy hillside provides one of the most picturesque landscapes in Europe. You could always explore it by car, but wouldn’t it be more fun to glide through the hills on snowshoes? With the Adventoura Slovokia Snowshoeing day tour, you can.

 

Adventoura Slovokia offers four different types of tours throughout the day, each catering to varying difficulty levels and experience. Beginners will appreciate the winter wonderland of the Tatra Mountains. The guide will provide you with a walk through the mountains where you’ll discover some of Slovakia’s incredible natural wonders, along with unique wildlife. More advanced adventurers can opt for the trip through the Kvačianska Valley. The valley lies in the western Tatra Mountains, a slightly more treacherous and hilly region.

 

One of the most popular trips goes through the village of Ždiar. This quaint hillside village offers an excellent opportunity to meet and mingle with the locals and learn more about life in remote portions of Slovakia. Since snow continues to fall here into late March/early April, you’re guaranteed to have plenty of powder on the ground. If you’re looking for a real challenge, check out the showshoeing tour through the National Park Slovak Paradise. It’s quite a bit longer than the other tours, but gives you the opportunity to view one of the country’s most beautiful regions up close.

 

Head on over to the Adventoura Slovokia website to check out more information on prices, and maybe even enquire about its super secret snowshoeing location they don’t advertise online.

Foods to Pack for a Long-Haul Flight (and How to Get Them Through Security)

 As airlines start nickel and dime-ing their way into the world’s wallets, travelers have had to get crafty in order to get around newly enacted add-on fees, especially when it comes to in-flight meals. Since this luxury is no longer guaranteed on some flights, particularly on low-cost, long-haul vessels, and because airport food is notoriously overpriced, passengers pack their own food to bring on these long flights. But what types of food are allowed to pass through security and also last multiple hours on a plane in varying temperatures?

Hotel Zeppelin, San Francisco

I lived in San Francisco during college so coming to visit the city and see all the changes was exciting. The Hotel Zeppelin was built in a once slightly shabby area that has since come alive with new hotels and restaurants for travelers looking for something different. We arrived at noon on a Friday afternoon and were immediately greeted by the hotel staff at the front desk. They were able to accommodate an early check-in, completed in just a few minutes. The lobby is as hip as the hotel name sounds, but it also offered a cozy atmosphere, with a roaring fire and comfy couches and chairs in the lounge area. Unique wall art, statues and lighting remind you of the cool factor.

Work and Play in Italy

ONCE THE FINAL MEETING WRAPS and the last contract is signed and sealed with a handshake, what’s next? Do you catch a flight back home or do you take advantage of the destination? If your next business trip is to Italy, we suggest adding a few more days to explore the country’s most amazing hot spots. Make time for more than a mouthwater- ing Italian meal in these three cities.

Coffee Table Books for the Adult-ish Traveler

There are few things as adult-ish as a well-designed living space. When you stop strewing your Ikea coffee table with old magazines and straw wrappers, and start creating a “lewk” that’s more your style, it’s time to invest in a coffee table book. Sometimes pricey, these are not the tomes you curl up with in your cozy chair. They’re often hefty, artistic and fun and, if chosen correctly, a true representation of your own sense of style and interests.
