Female staff in Dirndl dresses outside the Hotel Gotthard in Lech, Austria.

Early in December I headed to Lech in the Arlberg region of Austria for the beginning of the 2014-15 ski season.

I wrote about the region as a whole, entitled A Winter Break at Lech-Zuers in Austria’s Vorarlberg Region.

On Go-Eat-Do I wrote a review of the Hotel Gotthard and also published an interview with the hotel’s chef, Bruno Reichart.

I also reviewed the Hotel Gotthard for Our Man On The Ground.

More will follow in due course.

A pig figure outside of the Schweine Museum in Stuttgart, Germany.

During my trip to Stuttgart in Germany I visited the Schweine Museum (Pig Museum), a wonderfully quirky, fun to visit attraction that opened in May 2010 and have written about it for go-eat-do.com.

The Schweine Museum is informative in places and witty in others. It’s the largest pig-related museum in the world.

Here’s a link to my feature: The Schweine Museum (Pig Museum) in Stuttgart, Germany. I sincerely hope that you enjoy the feature and, naturally, that you don’t leave the site thinking I’ve made a pig’s ear of the write-up.  (As you’ll learn in the museum, there are a lot of phrases in languages around the world that feature pigs.)

Terrassa night club by the Zindan Gate of the Kalmegdan fortress in Belgrade, Serbia.

My feature Belgrade: Like A Local, providing an overview of the Serbian capital plus tips on places to eat, drink and shop is in the Jan-Feb 2015 edition of National Geographic Traveller.

Belgrade proved a great city for a long weekend and is rich in history. It has a number of good, affordable places to dine and is a great destination if you enjoy nightlife.

I wish I’d had more time to explore the Kalmegdan fortress and would love to return when the National Museum of Serbia re-opens after renovation.

I can imagine that it is a place that will attract many more international visitors in 2015 than in previous years. For more information about the country see the National Tourism Organisation of Serbia‘s website.
