Tender...Sunday 15th September 2013.

"Tender is my head, my heart and my 'arris..."

This was the first time we missed breakfast...there were mitigating circumstances, hah-hah! Felt a tad less shabby after a shower and we packed yet again (16 hotels in 16 days?) and headed-off downtown to recuperate, lakeside.
We found some other refugees lurking down there too, hah-hah!

Fair enough, I reckon.
From there we all boarded a coach for Verona Aeroporto and it was then a case of many handshakes and goodbyes all round. A good bunch but as is always the way with these tours you never get to spend enough time with folk to get to know them...to be fair, that's something that they're quite relieved about, hah-hah!

Il Tractore and myself then picked-up our hire car and were 'upgraded' to a slightly more spacious Renault Scenic which was handy. It still takes a bit of getting used to, what with having the steering wheel on the wrong side and everything...

Back up to Alta Badia and a definite upgrade in accommodation!

In honour of Peter...some strudel. Apple strudel, to be precise. Top man!

The day ended better than it began with a 11/10 steak and some decent local vino...all good, but  the Maratona Dles Dolomites awaits on Tuesday...85 miles forward and 15000' up. Merde!

None too shabby view from the apartment, no?

Yep. Going up plenty of them all too soon...then no mas, no mas!


I know that I have repeated this ad nauseam, but this venture has been the hardest to date and if you feel minded to donate then please hit the links below...thanks!
