Do you have a speculation about when Google will update?

  • Do you think there has been a backlinks update?
  • Do you think there has been a PR update?
  • Are you seeing Google fluctuations?
  • Do you think there has been an algorithm update?

Visiting Austrian Vineyards in August

My spouse and I are planning to visit Austria in August. We would be probably be flying and staying in Wien, as it’s easy to get a direct flight + hotel package there. Wien would serve as our base of operations for the visit.

We would like to visit the wine country surrounding Wien at Niederösterreich. Our plan would be to visit different vineyards and attend wine tastings and buy bottles of local wine to bring back home.

Question 1: Are Austrian vineyards open for visitation, or do we need to book appointments beforehand?

Question 2: Recommendations on vineyards to visit? We prefer dry whites.

Transsibirian trip in August

I want to travel through Russia for 30 days from St. Petersburg till Vladivostok. I’m currently learning Russian and should finish A2 in August when I want to start the trip.

I read about booking the train tickets and found out, that it’s possible to buy the tickets at the train stations so you can be more flexible. However I also read that the tickets in summer can be more expensive than usually. Is it still worth it to buy the tickets in Russia or should I stay safe (also in regards to having a safe tickets in case they are sold out?) and book the tickets now?

How active are the animals in Kruger National Park (S. Africa) in August? Season to see the Big Five (elephant, rhino, lion, leopard, & buffalo)?

I just booked a trip to South Africa with the purpose of viewing wildlife in Kruger National Park (a safari has always been my dream!!) for August of 2018. I know that animals are unpredictable, but I also know that there are seasons in which the wildlife are more active.

Now August in South Africa, is still their winter time merging into spring, and I was wondering if this means it would be too early to have a chance of seeing all members of the big five (black rhinoceros, African elephant, water buffalo, African lion, African leopard) as well as hyenas, zebras, giraffes, etc.? Essentially, will the wildlife be less active in August or do they stay pretty active even in the winter months? Steady activity?
