18th of August – 25th of August 2010

By car I started over night the around 7h ride to Limone sul Garda on Gardasee – the biggest lake in Italy. It was allowed to rent and drive a boat, even when you did not have a licence. On the way home I stopped at my aunt and uncle in Bozen, before driving back home to Germany.

9th of July – 11th of July 2016

Early in the morning I started together the second time with MCN (Mountain-Bike Club Neidenfels) by car with final destination in the lombardy – Livigno. A friend planned as usual a perfect bike week there. Perfect means perfect or just E!!!

I could only join them for 2 days, because of another trip in East Europe. The first day we just biked around the trails close to our hotel to get warm and the second day we did a perfect day tour with almost perfect weather. I heard it changed when I left; snow in the mid of summer. We biked to the highest station Ospizio Bernina of the Rhätische Bahn and further down the train rail to the Swiss train station Alp Grüm. After some problems with my rental bike from “The MC Känik“ we could continue this hard but awesome tour in the boarder region of Italy and Switzerland.

Back in our hotel, relaxing, dinner and watching the Europe Championship final in football. For me the bike holiday was over and I left the next morning by bus and train to Hungary.
