After an intensive workout, she rewards herself with an extra portion of pasta or pizza. Her motto is "Train hard, eat carbs harder". On holiday, she is most likely to be found with a sprizz at the most beautiful viewpoint in town or in a sea of books on the beach.

1. Safe Arrival

The excitement for vacation is undeniable! But before we dive into the adventure, let’s ensure the whole family arrives safely. Therefore, this message is especially for drivers: drive carefully! Observe speed limits, maintain a safe distance, and avoid tailgating. After all, no one wants to start their vacation with a fender bender.

2. Sunscreen and Headgear

In summer, protecting our skin is crucial. This applies to both children and adults. Why? Because our skin remembers every sunburn.

Every sunburn increases the risk of skin cancer and accelerates aging.

So, remember: sunscreen is your best friend! And also, pack a hat. The face and scalp need as much protection from the sun as the rest of our body.

3. Vacation in the South

The South offers beautiful beaches, picturesque landscapes, and culinary delights. However, we should definitely be cautious with food: always wash fruit thoroughly, regularly disinfect your hands, and avoid drinking tap water. A well-stocked travel pharmacy is also essential, especially for stomach issues. Stay in the shade, drink plenty of fluids (coke, tea, water), snack on pretzels, and rest. If symptoms persist after three days, please see a doctor.

4. Moderation is Key

Yes, the hotel buffet is tempting, and the third scoop of ice cream calls your name. But after seven scoops, euphoria can turn into nausea. Our tip: enjoy everything in moderation. Indulge in a few sweets while maintaining a healthy and balanced diet. Falkensteiner Hotels & Residences, for example, offer rich buffets with delicious superfoods and fresh fruits. In hot weather, opt for lighter meals and wait a bit before swimming.

5. Water Safety

Whether at the sea, lake, or pool, everyone looks forward to a refreshing dip on a hot day. But be cautious around pools, where most accidents occur. Falkensteiner Hotels & Residences emphasize guest safety and provide pool supervision. However, the hotel staff can’t watch everywhere. So, slow down around the pool, wear flip-flops, and be careful of slippery edges. When swimming in the sea, wear water shoes at pebble or rock beaches to avoid sea urchins and sharp rocks. For young swimmers, use floaties! And remember: shower after the pool and wash your feet after the sea to stay clean and minimize infection risks.

6. Wellness Tips

A sauna session followed by a plunge into cold water is refreshing! But caution is advised. Leading sauna masters recommend not jumping directly into icy water after a hot sauna. Instead, let your body cool down gradually. This prevents circulatory problems, is good for your body, and ensures you can continue enjoying the wellness area.

With these tips, you’re well-prepared for a safe and relaxing summer vacation. Enjoy your time, soak up the sun and energy – but remember, a little caution can make your vacation even better. Happy Holidays! 🌞🌴🕶️
