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!

I love lost places, and I love churches…the inscription on the ceiling says: ” Wer in den Teich hinabsteigt wird gesund. Der Geist Gottes schwebt über den Gewässern.”
