With September having arrived, it is now officially autumn, although just now it is hardly going to look any different from August - especially when it rains.
Many winter sports fans will feel that way too, with little thought for getting some skis or snowboards. Indeed, those who like to do summer sports as well will still be a few weeks away from putting their cricket pads or tennis rackets back in the cupboard.
However, for those who are in the know, there is plenty of year-round skiing and while the winter snows may be yet to arrive at most resorts, they will soon be abundant at the highest altitudes, supplementing the year-round fun offered by glaciers.
Why not enjoy some antiques in Austria? A pleasing Saturday looking at an antique market sounds great!
Well, you could have just such an experience in wonderful Zell am See early next month.
Antique markets are a regular event in the town square. According to Zell am See-Kaprun Tourismus GmbH the most recent one took place earlier this month.
Laughs galore will be on the cards at an upcoming Alpe D'huez festival, featuring Anne Roumanoff and other acts.
Alpe D'huez Tourisme has announced 'un festival d'humour au sommet' - a humour festival at the summit - for August 17th to 20th.
Headline act Anne Roumanoff will be performing her show 'Aimons-nous les uns les autres' at the event, taking to the stage on the 17th.
When it comes to the pleasures of holidaying, food is a true favourite. We bet you've had skiing trips and breaks away where what you ate really helped make the break brilliant.
Morzine has a food festival going on at the moment, in the shape of 'Morzine Aime Ses Saveurs'.
The event begins today, August 10th, with activities like a cheese tasting in the evening. It goes on until August 14th - this coming Friday - according to the Office de Tourisme de Morzine Avoriaz.
We're often pleased when we see our favourite places to ski offering visitors musical experiences.
One tune-tastic activity on the way in the coming year is the latest staging of Pop Rock Live - whose name is satisfyingly self-explanatory.
Office de Tourisme de Flaine reports that this event is due to happen for a week from April 2nd next year.
