I get bored of the same old scenery – I am always after something new to inspire me. Especially places as beautiful as South Tyrol.
Today, I am dreaming of this hike back in the heat of summer. I was in the mountainous terrain of South Tyrol in northern Italy, trekking and trying everything.
The above photo never fails to make me laugh – that poor farmer looks like a cornered zoo animal. Bonus points if you can spot me in the lineup.
During the same afternoon that was taken, we embarked upon a really beautiful hike. Trainers on and lathered in suncream, we climbed up to a little mountain hut for a Tyrollean lunch, where we met Hans – a delightful man who baked us bread and showed us photos from his past.
I really miss that skyline – there was something so striking about it. Like watching daggers in the sky.

Enjoy the images…
Hope you like (and happy hiking)
