Well, since I’m down to one week until I leave for Ireland, I’ve just not had the time to put into writing a good blog post.
So here’s another photo essay.
But this one is coming from Italy. And, in particular, my favorite spot in Italy — Castelrotto (Kastelruth in German) and the Alpe di Siusi up in northern Italy.
Now I love so much of Italy as many of you who have been following me know. Tuscany, Umbria, the Veneto. Lake Como, Florence, Cinque Terre, the Dolomites. Love it all.
Castelrotto and the Alpe di Siusi?
Truly my favorite. At least so far.
While it’s more Germanic in nature having been a part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire prior to WWI, I just love the pink-hued pinks, the green meadows, the alpine architecture and the friendly locals. It’s simply breathtaking!
And as I dream of making this 6-8 week trip into 12 weeks, I’d definitely return to this area of Italy, to my beloved Dolomites, to spend the early summer. It’s truly stunning.
So sit back, once again, and check out some of my favorite images of my favorite destination in Italy.
What do you think?
Would you travel to this area of Italy?
You know, you don’t have to be some major outdoors person. The walks are really mild. And there are even gondolas and chair lifts to take you up to the higher areas.
I love Castelrotto and the Alpe di Siusi. I love the Dolomites with their rugged, pink-hued looks. And I love the green fields and meadows.
In all honesty, I’m not sure I’ll make it back here this year. But I’ve promised myself next year for sure!
In the meantime, maybe one of you will go. I hope so. You won’t be disappointed!
