What to do on a 8-day vacation on Borneo

Touring the Malaysian states of Sarawak & Sabah

We – two families with an adult son each – had been looking for a destination in Southeast Asia for summertime. This undertaking had been complicated by the fact that the rainy season falls over the summer months. Finally, we settled for North Borneo as there is high season in July.

One day in the life of a hotel guest at Hotel Zuerserhof in Zuers-Lech/Austria

It is my tenth (!) stay at the splendid Hotel Zuerserhof in the Austrian Alps. Not only is it ideally located for skiing, but above all it also offers everything and more for the wellbeing of its guests. Every detail that might add to my satisfaction has been thought of.
