Tri Lander Nek (Where the three lands touch)
I roller over and it was ten after 8 am. What a great night sleep, Kirsten was just waking up and heard the cows out the window.
She jumps up and looks out and see’s horses being lead across the road to the pasture next to our Zimmer. They are prancing and neighing and Kirsten is excited.
She jumps into the shower and I roll over for another 30 minutes. After a hot shower, we both go downstairs and have a great European breakfast. The table was set with bread, cheeses, meats, cereal, coffee and the famous soft-boiled eggs.
It was perfect.
While eating, the innkeeper brings us these cards. They reminded me of when we were in Bertschesgarten. This card would give you free bus rides. Hedy loved it and used them. Well these cards gave us free gondola rides up the mountain. It also allowed me to get a $15 euro refund for the toll road I had to pay the day before.
Woo Hoo, Thanks Hedy for stressing the importance of these vacation cards.
We took the gondola
up; I mean way up, over a gorge and them major up to the top. They even have a helicopter pad to bring folks down and you know why. Brian I think these slopes might interest you.
After coming down from the mountain we then began our ride over, through and around the mountains, gorges and valleys. As we were coming through the boarder between Austria and Italy we found this cool WWII fort. Couldn’t go in but it was pretty cool looking.
We drove through Austria, Switzerland and are now in Italy all in one day, thus “Where the Three Lands Touch”.
While navigating and Kirsten driving, motorcycles after motorcycles came speeding around us up and down the mountain passes. It’s amazing there were no accidents.
Around 1 PM we stopped for a light lunch. I don’t know which country we were in but the bratwurst and beer was delicious.
From there we continued our scenic route to Trento. The route was very nice, apple orchards all around us for as far as you could see. Like in Polk county Florida, you see citrus everywhere. Well in northwestern Italy you see apple orchards.
As we drove down toward Trento Italy we start looking for a place to stay. We decided to drive through Trento. Big mistake it’s 5 PM and everyone wants out of the city and were in their way. After an hour we give up and continue south.
While heading south I remember, well sort of where we stayed last time. I tell Kirsten to exit off the highway. I try explaining where were going and she looks at me and rolls her eyes.
Well with in 15 minutes we were checked in and discussing where to go for dinner.
The hotel had a large map of the Trento city so we decided to try it again. Well we made it back but it was stressful driving.
Dinner was just so so, the Domo is nice, not the best but nice.
So what I’m saying is; Trento you are being deleted from future trips to Italy.
Tomorrow, onto the vineyards.
