Impressions @ Abenteuer & Allrad

We spent 3 days at the Abenteur & Allrad expo in Bad Kissingen, but for sure didn't see everything. The area was huge with a big number of stalls offering everything related to travelling with a 4x4 car or caravan.

4x4 Adventure Camp @ Bad Kissingen

Every year the world's biggest (really?) Adventure & 4x4 fair takes place in Bad Kissingen in Germany. It was our first time we went there and we were quite curious what we will experience.

Bad to the bone

Lovely medival Town @ Germany

On our way through Bavaria we visited Rothenburg ob der Tauber, a medieval town which was completely restored after the war true to the original and still has the flair of an historic town.

The "Rosengarten Schlucht" @ Imst

In Tyrol we stopped at a very nice camping in Imst (Activ Camping), and because we really liked it there we decided to stay for 2 nights. The owner recommended us to hike up the Rosengarten canyon, which we did.

The Glacier walk

Our last hike in South Tyrol took us high up into the Alps and near the Langtaufer Ferner glacier.

Don't miss the Alto Adige

South Tyrol or Alto Adige, how it is called in Italian, truely is a wonderful part of Europe. There are the mountains and valleys, the people, the food and of course the weather. All in all an area where we want to spend more time ;-)

24 Euros saved @ Pordoi

The Sella is a part of the Dolomites which I know very well from countless skiing holidays. It was great to visit this area in summer. After spending the night at the Pordoi Joch we wanted to save the fee for the funicular and walk up to the mountain station instead.

"Erdpyramiden" walk

Earth Pyramides or Hoodoos?? are strange formations formed by erosion. Many of them can be found in South Tyrol.

"Pragser Wildsee" hike

Our next destination in South Tyrol was the Pragser Wildsee, a beautiful lake surrounded by mountains.

"Drei Zinnen" hike

Our first hike in South Tyrol was at the Drei Zinnen. We took the route through the Rienz valley starting at the Drei Zinnen Blick near Toblach.

A day on the road ...

It was a beautiful drive through the Austrian Alps from Lunz am See to South Tyrol with some adventures on the way.

"Wasserloch" hike

We finally left Vienna and are on the way to South Tyrol now. We took the route through the Alps and found a little hike at the south of the Hochkar, where you can walk up a canyon which has a big surprise at the top!

The Pogusch hike

We always tell ourselves we go to the Pogusch for the nice hikes there, but the truth is, we go there for the fantastic restaurant.

Twin Tower Hike

We passed the Red Bull Ring at Spielberg before we reached Knittelfeld where we spotted two towers standing out of the hill behind the town. Looked like a good hiking destination so we searched for a parking and started to walk.

"Lichtspieltheater" Lost Place @ Austria

We headed in direction of Bad St. Leonhard where we had arranged a appointment with our friend Klaus to pick up some of his excellent Tuscany olive oil "Fabiani di Sotto"
He showed us his historic Cinema called "Lichtspieltheater", which he bought years ago. It was opened in 1953 and closed 1970 and had never been touched again. A very interesting piece of local Austrian history!

The Black Cat - an Italian Dinner

Crossing Italy we stopped at Borghetto which is a lovely place near Verona. It was the second time we went there, but again we were not lucky with the weather.

The first hike in Italy

Crossing the Alps from Briançon in France to Turin in Italy we found a nice hike in Foresto. The weather was still not good but we made the best out of it.

Crossing France

On the way back home we crossed France from Biarritz at the Atlantic coast to Briançon in the Alpes but made a couple of stops where we discovered a lovely town and saw beautiful landscapes on the way.

Typical France: alleys of sycamores
