Lake Garda (Lago di Garda, or Gardasee) is located in the Northern part of Italy just a short 4-5 hour drive from Munich. Although this area can be filled with German tourists, it still should make it onto your checklist of places to travel. It. is. gorgeous. We went at the height of travel season and while Riva del Garda was absolutely packed, Limone sul Garda was only moderately full and really beautiful!
While the California Redwoods are hardly a hidden travel treasure, some things are just too spectacular not to mention. On our recent road trip along the Pacific Northwest we both knew we wanted to experience the Redwood forests, but we weren’t exactly sure where to start. There are many state parks in the area and it can be a bit daunting when traveling to decide where is the best place to go. After a little research we settled on driving down the Avenue of the Giants and we were definitely not disappointed.
If soaking up the Italian sun (and perhaps a little Italian wine) sounds good to you, you might want to add Sestri Levante to your list of places to visit. This little city set in the mountains along the Northern coast of Italy is perfect for a long relaxing weekend of eating, drinking, and enjoying the ocean.
