SolaRoad, the street to the future

By Laeti, 11/19/2014 - 05:45

This is happening! The 1st solar-powered road is open to the public.

Since November 12th 2014, 70m of bike lane in North Amsterdam are equipped with solar panels covered with tempered glass. For the 1st time, roads are used to “harvest” solar energy. The electricity produced is fed into the national grid but in the future could be used to power street and traffic lights or electric vehicles.

World’s Best Christmas Markets

By Laeti, 11/18/2014 - 05:12

As the holiday season is getting closer, cities light up their streets and open their Christmas markets. This custom finds its roots in Middle Age Germany and is becoming ever more popular in many cities worldwide. During the 4 weeks of the advent, the period preceding Christmas day, Christmas markets are sprouting around the globe. These ephemeral islands of Christmas magic are enlivening the cities with scents of roasted nuts, bratwurst and mulled wine. The accent is set on artisanal, hand-made products as well as traditional ornaments and gifts from around the world.

Experience a South Tyrolean Törggelen

By Laeti, 11/14/2014 - 02:40

This autumn, escape to North Italy and enjoy the beautiful ballet of autumnal colours around the South Tyrolean mountains and valleys. The South Tyrol province has something to offer during each season, but surely autumn is the cosiest time of the year.

Travel Smarter Without Plastic Bottle

By Laeti, 11/13/2014 - 05:47

When planning a green holiday, we are thinking about checking the eco-credentials of the lodge, booking a local guide or off-setting our air miles. Additionally a very simple little step towards a more sustainable holiday is to avoid using plastic bottles: Get a stainless steel or thermos bottle and when travelling in areas where water is not drinkable, you can treat your own water with a steripen or purifying tablets. This simple action means a lot to the environment.
