LIFETRAVELLERZ.com is a Travel & Kitesurf Blog written by the Austrian couple Melanie and Juergen. Based at the home of „sound of music“ in Mondsee, between dozens of lakes, mountains and nature you have to use the native resources of the region. While spring and autumn bring some storms and a lot of wind, summer is the perfect time for foiling on all this beautiful coloured lakes. Both of them love to live the surferlifestyle so they travel and work in their Campervan „Luigi“ and spend as much time as they can at the water. During the wintermonths when the temperatures in Austria fall far below zero the Lifetravellerz are searching for warmer places like Capetown, Cuba or Asia.
