The sun is now slowly losing its power, the leaves on the trees are turning golden yellow and are blown down by the wind. Autumn is coming – and with it the pumpkin season begins again. At harvest festivals and farmers' markets, the orange giants are making an entrance: there are Hokkaido pumpkins in masses. Just this month, the food bloggers' Culinary World Tour stops in Japan – so I was looking for a recipe in which the pumpkin season could be combined with the theme of Japan. So at the weekend we had a pumpkin vegetable with Japanese flavors to the delicious beef steak. What can I say: it became a successful experiment!

Nature camping in Austria’s sunny south

So wonderful is a vacation in harmony with nature

Sustainability, environmental protection and the love of nature are topics that accompany us more and more – be it in everyday life, in mobility or even when it comes to vacations. Because it is often difficult to reconcile big travel plans with our ecological footprint. Instead of booking an exotic long-distance trip, more and more people spend their vacations in a nearby vacation destination. Austria and in particular Carinthia offer themselves for it outstandingly. On the sunny southern side of the Alps, Carinthia, the southernmost province of Austria, offers unparalleled natural beauty, cultural diversity and warm hospitality.

No one has to give up a vacation for the love of nature. Because with the right consciousness each journey can be arranged pollution free – and in addition it does not need often at all much. Gentle tourism is the magic word, which is heard more and more often. The aim is to have as little impact as possible on the nature we have visited, but at the same time to feel it as closely and intensively as possible. In this context, camping is experiencing a real renaissance – and especially nature camping.

Halifax, the capital of the province of Nova Scotia, is not necessarily the best-known tourist city in Canada. Yet it boasts a rich maritime history, interesting historic sites, a wonderful waterfront and a diverse dining scene. Not to forget one of the main attractions of Nova Scotia in the vicinity of Halifax: the lighthouse of Peggy's Cove. Besides, it is quite easy to explore Halifax on your own.

Whether you are here on an individual trip or as a cruise tourist, Halifax itself is best explored on foot, even if the city's hillside location makes it a bit of a hassle at times. The center of the city is quite manageable and offers something for everyone: culturally interested, nature lovers, gourmets will all equally enjoy the visit to the city.

Tips for sustainable travel

Every_one of us likes to go on vacation, relax and take a break from the stressful daily routine. However, more than all of us, now nature is ready for a vacation.

I love to recharge my batteries in nature, to listen to the sound of the sea and the chirping of the birds and to take a deep breath of a unique feeling of freedom. But not only we want to experience this feeling, but also the people of the next generations should be allowed to experience this feeling. But what if this will not be possible? Every person can contribute to sustainability and support the Earth instead of destroying it. Everybody can make a small contribution and together we leave a big ecological footprint!

In this blog post you will find some tips for eco-friendly travel that are quite simple to implement. Have fun reading and implementing!
