This reminds me of the fact that I never actually finished writing about all the things we did in Cinque Terre, and since that was four years ago… think I have to let that one go. Suffice to say, even the parts that I didn’t post about were also gorgeous and skies were crazy and buildings were sun-kissed and and and… *sigh* Italy.
Two years in a row had BV and I walking a long way uphill to get to the Bonnerhütte on their first open day of the season. Since we’re taking a break from South Tyrol this May, we won’t be getting those sweet sweet dumplings this weekend, but hopefully they’ll still be available whenever we do get there next time.
This winter walk a few years ago was much different to today’s white-frosted one. Hope everyone’s got their shovels handy…
Oh, the top nine insta posts. So succinct, and at least in my case, so pointy.
The highlights this year are decidedly less Scandinavian than last year, but I suppose staying closer to home is okay when it looks like this. For those interested in a slighter closer look at all the things I didn’t get to blogging about (pretty sure I say that every year), click on!
Every wellness weekend must end with a brisk hike through the countryside; it’s a fact. Your choice on if dots or lines are more your speed.
Here’s hoping for a few more nice fall days in the forest…
Considering that we didn’t take an official summer vacation this year, the last two months have been a whole lot of all over the place. BV and I did spend five days in Oberbayern with his parents in July, but that was more like another extended weekend than an actual vacation. I’m hoping we make up for it next year but that all remains to be seen.
So what did I get up to in August and September (besides baking?), click on to find out…
Hiking down from the Tegernseer Hütte couldn’t have looked more different than the hike up. For one thing, we could see. The whole uphill hike had been through a rainy mist, so when this day dawned perfectly clear, it was a most welcome change. Lingering in the sun on the way down is important for soaking up as much vitamin D as possible before winter sets in!
This picture is basically life goals, assuming the dog is just out of shot and I have learned how to make Kaiserschmarrn as well as they do here at the Hutzenalm. Seriously, go there just to eat that. It’s choice.
We’ve been trapped inside most of this weekend due to some much-needed rain in the area. While the break from the heat is nice, it is a wee bit sticky outside. It doesn’t quite compare to the dripping humidity that we experienced on this hike a few years ago, but I do wish there was some water around to stick my feet in. The bathtub isn’t quite the same as an Alpine stream.
