Small Town Experiences High Above Switzerland

When the first snow falls each winter on the East Coast island I call home, I always daydream off to being atop a mountain. I made a vow to seek out more alpine experiences this year and I began that journey with Switzerland. A lover of small town experiences, I happened upon Whitepod in the […]

Glamping- Best for You, Best for Nature

In our world of shrinking ice caps and growing trash dumps, our consciousness is thankfully turning towards protecting the Earth and providing sustainable solutions to our living.
