What I did?
I visited the Gastein area of Austria during the winter to experience what it was like during that season. This included snowboarding the various ski areas in Gastein, seeing some of the seasonal events such as “Art on the Snow”, as well as visiting some of the restaurants in Bad Gastein and up the mountains. I then wrote a blog post about my experience and also shared pictures via my various social channels.

A comment from Gastein Tourism
First of all I would like to thank Mike for his great effort. We have never ever had a blogger who works as accurate as Mike did. It was great to see how interested he was in the area and the people. He explores a lot on his own to get good pictures and a feeling for the region. Mike is not only a great writer, he is furthermore a fantastic photographer. I hope we get the opportunity to continue working with him in future.”
