Cape Breton: A Trip To Reconnect With Nature

Cape Breton is a lot different than the regular places of Canada. To spend some days far away from the city and reconnect with nature has been a great experience. Believe it or not, you can spend the whole summer checking out things in here and yet be left with things to experience and see. In case you are planning to visit Cape Breton, here is some must-do activities that you need to experience.

  • Stopover at Highlands Provincial Park

Whenever you are on a trip to Cape Breton, do not miss out on this. I loved the Cabot Trail that offers a view of the stunning coastline and beautiful park. Stop and marvel at the natural beauty and the mesmerizing views. Reach the beach and spend some relaxing time.

  • Take a walk along Bog Trail

A part of Highlands Provincial Park is Bog Trail. If you do not want to get wet, keep your feet dry by taking a walk on the boardwalk. This will help you to explore the bog. While I was walking on the trail, I came across pitcher plants, dragonflies, frogs, and giant moose. It is fun walking amongst nature.

  • Have ice-cream at the lighthouse of Neil Harbor

There is a small ice-cream parlor at Neil’s Harbor Lighthouse. It serves some delectable ice-creams. A patio wraps around the lighthouse. This overlooks the coastline. You are simply going to love the ice-cream while you enjoy the view.

  • Enjoy the lobsters at Baddeck

Do not forget to have the lobster at Baddeck Lobster Suppers. They also serve other dishes like mussels, chowder, snob-crab, and dessert. The best part about this place is that the seafood is all fresh and mouthwatering. There are some single dishes to have if you aren’t feeling extremely hungry.

Fussen: Exploring All The Fabulous Attractions

This summer, I decided to visit the charming city of Fussen. Most tourists tend to ignore because of it being close to Munich. However, it is going to be great fun if you plan a road-trip from Munich. There are various things to do and see in here. When you visit Fussen, here are few things that you can do.

Neuschwanstein Castle

Even though it is not technically in this city, this castle is one of the attractions which draw people to Fussen.  I drove to Schwangau, which only took about 6-10 minutes.  While there we found it amazing and with much rich history and detailed architecture.  This is the most popular castle in Germany. I have to say this is the perfect destination for spending the night.

Altstadt Von Füssen

Füssen’s town center is pretty small. As a matter of fact, you will be able to walk through the streets and check out what it has to offer. There are several shops. I got some souvenirs for my loved ones from here. The food served by restaurants here are delicious.

Lechfall

Take a walk from the town center of Fussen to reach a place where you find Lech plunging into the Lech Gorge. There is a bridge here, you can onto it. This will allow you to stand over the falls. I was truly mesmerized by the view that it offered. The scenery is so great. The background of the limestone mountain range is a sight to behold.

Treetop walkway

About half mile from Austrian border is Lechfall. You might miss it if you do not take a good look at the map. Towards the right of the border, you are going to come across a treetop walkway. This is at a height of 68 feet. Either start from Germany to reach the Austrian side or the opposite. This walk was a field with scenic beauty and I clicked several photos.
