As promised in my previous post, I come back with more highlights from the Südtirol trip. The only way to capture the evergreen beauty around the guesthouse we were staying at was to take a long walkabout into the neighbouring forest, literally right under our noses.
Before I dive into describing our walk in detail I would like to take a side-track moment and highlight the fact that wearing the correct sole shoes in Südtirol is essential, otherwise when you are walking around (totally at leisure) this happens. Sad moment: I had to say goodbye to my favourite Havana flip flops in the world. Lots of memories were had with these guys over the past 6 years. I will always remember you fondly!
I was curious so I had to taste and play around with the outdoor surroundings. Here below I can be seen picking flowers and drinking from water that was spewing out of the ground. Insane, I know, but I lived to tell the tale. Although some mushrooms and berries looked so elegantly inviting, I knew better, and I simply enjoyed them from afar. As we were walking around the mossy path we came upon another smaller falls in the forest which was absolutely beautiful.
Soon after we began our descent back, I had to stop and take photos manifesting the overall feel of the woods. I love the smell of moss and I literally could stay around a mossy forest all day long and get completely lost in the magic! We walked as slowly as we could and once we got back to our room I was feeling all smitten by the beauty of the outside world so I took a photo to remember!
If you find yourself in Südtirol and want to partake in a super relaxing hike with a beautiful view up top and maybe you also enjoy or want to try raw milk once you get to the top. And one more selling point is – too tired to hike back down, no problem, there is a gondola! This place is called the “Rittner Horn” or short “Ritten”, in Trentino-Alto Adige. I conclude my Südtirol posts with pictures below…
To end this post I want to wish you all a happy Halloween and a wonderful beginning to the fall season! Please check back in November, when you will find a new menu bar on my blog called ‘Recipes’.
