Where is your dream vacation location?Watch
So you would love to spend your vacation in Austria or in Switzerland? why not in wintertime? it is possible to ski in this season.
Winter would be nice too, but I think a summer spent strolling through the forests and high pastures of the Alps, hiking, mountain biking, kayaking, swimming in crystal clear lakes and mountain steams would be lovely. Lots of nice towns to poke around in, plus lots of sunshine without oppressive heat and humidity.
