DOLOMITES tuesday evening 6-21

Av EvaLena Hallgren - Tisdag 20 juni 18:21

After lots of disappointments due to wrong information about buses at the Garmisch RVsite, we got up real early and drove to Partenkirchen, and parked at a bakery where Mom bought the most delicious bread ever. Germans may not know how to prepare a hamburger, but they sure do know how to bake.

 

we made a quick walk through the town and if we are to come here again Mom says we will be staying here instead of Garmisch. This was so much more interesting, beautiful buildings and lots of restaurants. There were no chain stores here, mostly Mom and Pop type places and that's what we like.

     

we drove out of town smelling the fresh warm bread so Mom had to pull over and taste it. I'm not crazy about bread but I do like cheese.


 


 

After this stop, we were heading for the Austrian border and the Brenner pass. Mom had figured out to take the old road that snakes around in many sharp curves. Unfortunately, as we were getting into Innsbruck the road was an 18% downhill for several miles, scared the living doodas of Mom. I could hear her heart beat.............She stopped at a station and bought the sticker needed to go on the autobahn.And she sure regretted that so after an hour of driving on a 3lane road at full speed she decided to get off an exit.  

Lots of this kind of jumping.

 


Anyway, we went passed Austria in a hurry and after Mom took of an exit she tried to reprogram Alice to get us to a camp site. But Alice messed up although it wasn't her fault since she couldn't get any satellite connection in tunnels.
She was so confused so Mom turned her off and drove on a feeling.........

And what a feeling it was, We ended up on a very exciting road up and down (mostly up)and turns so sharp you can almost see Lucy's rear end........

We are in the Dolomite mountains.

The Dolomites are renowned for skiing in the winter months and mountain climbing, hiking, cycling, and base jumping, as well as paragliding and hang gliding in summer and late spring early autumn................needless to say we're doing none of that.

   


The site of the Dolomites comprises a mountain range in the northern Italian Alps, numbering 18 peaks which rise to above 9850 feet and covers over 141,903 ha. It features some of the most beautiful mountain landscapes anywhere, with vertical walls, sheer cliffs and a high density of narrow, deep and long valleys. A serial property of nine areas that present a diversity of spectacular landscapes of international significance for geomorphology marked by steeples, pinnacles and rock walls, the site also contains glacial landforms and karst systems. It is characterized by dynamic processes with frequent landslides, floods and avalanches. The property also features one of the best examples of the preservation of Mesozoic carbonate platform systems, with fossil records

A bunch of mountain bikers was filming using a flying saucer?  Mom got to see the result and was very impressed, I didn't't like it hovering over my head.

   

It's a hot day almost 90F so this tunnel was a nice cooling off place.





 

 

Mom thought the lake looked so inviting, but couldn't find a good place to get down to it.

 

 

we only have about 100 miles left to Venice, so that's were we'll be tomorrow. FOr now we found a great parkingplace with great views.

   

 

see you in the morning................lalala

First off I want to apologize to all our friends following us. I have begged and pleaded to Mom to help me write, I even barked a few times, to no avail. She says since we're back in Sweden now there's not much to write about it's just same old same ...

Here we go again, as soon as Mom get together with her friends she forgets to help me write my blog. She says it's because we have nothing interesting to share, we eat, we rest, we chat. Yeah, but I have something to say and I feel neglected............

I like to rapport that even the older generation has succumbed to this habit by the dinner table, (they only need larger devices)........... Makes Mom crazy, but on the other hand at this age, these two probably already said everything that needs to ...

We're still at the Mosel river, and this time in a small town called Winningen. The entire drive is only 130 miles, but with so many stops and looking around it's slow going, not that I mind, but it's getting really hot again, and I'm longing for the...

I'm really happy spending time here in Germany today because I don't have to deal with fireworks that frighten me so every year.   So, we left Avignon and Mom knew we had to make it to Germany to get the propane filled and that's 480 miles, and ...
