On our way!

23 Aug

23 August 2022.

After a final sweep for cat toys lost under the sectional and in closets, we turned the care-and-feeding of Molly and Sven over to our house-sitter, Megan. We are off on our Favorite Places Tour, as I have dubbed this fall trip.

It was hard to leave these two sweeties today!

Over the next 8 weeks we will spend the majority of our time in the Alpe di Siusi and Val Gardena of Italy and in the charming towns of Bettmeralp and Lauterbrunnen in Switzerland, staying from 3 nights to 4 weeks in each of those four places. There will be three transitory stops (1-2 nights): Frankfurt on arrival, Milano as a convenient break on the way to Bettmeralp, and in Geneva as we depart there on October 15. The only new to-us place we will sleep is Geneva.

It’s a nice pace for us: longer stays in places that afford good hiking, great transportation, and simple lifestyle. Not driving a car for 8 weeks is pure luxury to us. 

I hope you will follow along as I plan to blog erratically the next few weeks.

A presto!
