Start to bike season featuring pictures from Lake Garda

I had a really long ski season this year and therefore I started biking rather late, but at least I started. This reminded me of a great biking trip to Europes Mountainbike hotspot Lake Garda (North Coast) in May 2009.

going up

Going up is the hard part …

going down

going down is more fun … most times …

I wish all cyclists out there a great season without injuries!

The biggest love story ever …

Julia

I read something about William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet just recently and therefore I had a look at my photo archive for pictures of Verona. I discovered this nice pictures which was taken just beneath Juliet’s balcony in her families house.

It is told that you will be fortunate if you touch the breast of Juliet´s statue, therefore people do it all day long and it gets this very polished look!

Verona is a great place – but a little bit touristy. If you have never been there, go visit it, if you have – try to see the other cities in the area (like Mantua), which are not as crowded and very nice, too!

Here you can see a picture of Mantuas main square “Piazza Sordello”

Short ski touring holidays …

Hi … I am currently somewhere in the Silvretta, a part of the Austrian Alpes. I will be back next week and then this blog will hopefully get more updates again …

Enjoy spring!

 

UPDATE: This post should have gone live on Saturday. I am back again and will increase my postings again!

Skitouring Silvretta

Skitouring Silvretta

I picked this picture as it was taken 2007 when ski touring from Ischgl in Tyrol to the Bielerhöhe in Vorarlberg: We will do this next week again (Thursday to Sunday) and I am really looking forward to this. Its one of the greatest things to go skitouring in spring, when it is still cold in the mornings (when you go touring) but after arriving on your hut (which is normally at lunch time) it is really warm and you can enjoy the Spring sun!

+ Perfect spring skiing (obviously)

Bryce Canyon – one of my favorite places in the USA

Bryce Canyon

This blog normally concentrates on Central Europe, but as I have got a rather nasty cold and cannot concentrate enough to write a longer post, I thought it might be nice to share one of my favorite pictures of one of my favorite places in the USA with you.

Longer and more meaningful posts will follow as soon as my cold vanishes.

Volcano …

View from Volcano

View from Vulcano towards Lipari

This fridays picture was taken on top of Mount Vulcano on the Aeolian Islands north of Sicily. Volcano and Stromboli are perhaps the most famous one, but you should definitely visit Lipari (the island in the background), too, as the city there is a perfect example for an Italian town.

Cascade in FerleitenCascade in Ferleiten

This pictures were taken “behind” the Walcher Wasserfall (Cascade) – in Ferleiten. Ferleiten is a part of Fusch an der Glocknerstrasse – here is the toll station for the Glockner Hochalpenstrasse. You can visit this cascade doing an easy hike of about 2 hours.
