The Dolomites, Italy

Impressions from my last road trip three weeks ago to the Dolomites, Italy. What can I say? The Dolomites never disappoint, even if you are welcomed at the Brenner pass (austrian-italian border) on a Sunday night with a snow storm and five inches of fresh snow. Nature is starting to bloom at this time of the year and the green pastures gives a great backdrop to the freshly snow-covered landscape. Enjoy!
