After over two weeks of pretty much solid boarding and sleeping well below zero temps, we both felt a bit run down so headed for the spa town of Merano in northern Italy.

It was a relativly short drive down through a mountain pass from Austria to Northern Italy but when we hit the pass in the evening we discovered it was closed for the winter a detail we wish was on our map! We had to camp near there that night and had a long detour via the Brenner pass to Italy the next day.

When we finally got to Merano, even though the temp was in the low teens, it felt like Summer to us. We spent a whole day in the thermal spa complex, with 13 indoor pools and a handfull of outdoor ones, and generally lazing about with a view of the snowcapped mountains in the distance. By the end of the day our bones were nicely defrosted
