Best Places to Visit in Austria

As an avid hiker and mountain lover, it’s hard to beat Austria! While the famous cities like Salzburg and Vienna, are gorgeous, my favourite areas in Austria are outside of the cities in the Alps! I especially love Hohe Tauern National Park. Below you will find some of my favourite places that I’ve been, but keep checking back as I’m in Austria multiple times each year, since it’s so close to Munich, Germany, where I live!

Meet Flo: A Seven Year Hotel Guest Who Has Never Paid

Flo arrived to the Falkensteiner Hotel & Spa Carinzia seven years ago and shows no signs of leaving. Not surprisingly, Flo has become a bit of a local celebrity with hotel guests. Perhaps this is why she has been able to stay for seven years without ever paying for a night's stay.
