Wrap it Up…

This video might not be for the epileptics among you. 6 months worth of photos in 3 and a half minutes. I think it’s around 5000 shots… Pretty well tells the whole story, in a nutshell.

Anyway, it’s time to wrap up the Euro stuff ’cause there’s been plenty of goings on along the home front. Hmmm, where to begin?

I made a really fun trip to Wales with Malcolm.

We lucked out with some great weather, at least on Saturday.

I really like road trips with Malcolm.

He’s pretty fun to sit in a car with, plus he always has a great stash of music. And to top it off, he can usually spot a good pub…

We camped in a field on someone’s farm, which is kind of normal in England. You just have to be careful where to park.

Which was a bit of a scramble. Very fun, but you didn’t want to let go.

Then we drove to Coed y Brenin for some fun mtb trails.

Great stuff.

…The very next weekend…

I was off for a whirlwind trip through Italy and Switzerland.

I stayed in a hostel in Sta Maria in Switzerland.

Better keep your head downbike room
The rooms were pretty basic
Inside my hostel dorm.
but I think that was really part of the fun. Drinking wine I bought in Italy outside with Swiss and Austrian tourists, eating local cheese and eggs, and drinking the local beer. All fantastic.

I could sure go for a Bun Tschlin about nowBun Tschling
mmmm

But geeze, I haven’t even mentioned the riding…

Garmin Connect – Activity Details for Stelvio loop.

Garmin Connect – Activity Details for Mortirolo and Gavia loop..

I guess I’ll just have to make this two parts so I can go into a little more detail about those two routes…

Until next time.
