The Best Ecolodges of the French Alps

The French Alps are a relatively young mountain range, and therefore offer some of the most breathtaking vistas - sheer, angular snow-capped peaks, with secluded valleys nestled between them. As a holiday destination, the Alps are most often associated with ski-resorts and over-priced chalets. Increasingly people are now flocking to the French Alps during the summer months thanks to numerous eco-lodges which have sprung up in the region over the last few years.

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.

Sanibel Island - Florida

Sanibel Island is an island located on the Gulf coast of Florida. With the city of Sanibel incorporating the entire island and with a population of just over 6,000, it is the perfect sunshine hideaway for any ecotourist looking to relax and soak up some rays. Most of the city proper is concentrated on the east side of the island, leaving the rest mostly free fof traffic - human or otherwise.
