Catch the last rays of sun as the hot summer days

come to an end!

 

There's a lot of benefits traveling in this season. The touristic crowd has just left which means hotel rates are cheaper and long-distance train reservations are easier to book! The lovely cool weather also starts to sink in, but there is still enough warmth to take a cool dip in the seas.
