Morning Briefing with Pianoman Wian
and then...conquering Italia......
and of course we needed to try the first italian Cappuccino and some guys could not resist to take as well an Applestrudel ...
After having gone through hundreds of curves already in the morning by driving up and down various passes on the way we to Bolzano, all were looking forward to the Picknick which has been provided by Thomas...... yummie...
After the picknick we took the chance to take the góndola at the Passo de Falzaego to have an spectacular view over the Dolomites.... simply breathtaking and hardly posible to describe
And here you see another Tourguide... representing an Austrain Mountain Soldier in 1915. During the 1st World War there has been heavy fights between the Italian Kingdom against the Austrian Hungrian Habsburger Kingdom.....
