for those of you that enjoy road trips, i will have to say that my favorite, thus far, has been the drive from frankfurt, germany, south to italy.

we drove through wuerzburg, ingolstadt, and munich. in the munich area, once you get close to austria, the scenery really begins to change. rolling green hills, quaint alpine villages, farmland, dairy cows, and more gorgeous scenery. once in austria, passing innsbruck, the austrian alps start to appear, and soon one is in northeastern italy, in the dolomites. our total trip driving time was about 8 hours, as this is when we were headed to our castle in cison di valmarino, the veneto area of italy.

an hour before arriving at our final destination, we were driving through curving mountain passes, surrounded by vast and raging snow-capped mountains. more to see than the eye could take in, we passed at least a dozen castles. up in hills, some right next to the highway, others set in the center of town. outdoor enthusiasts flock to the dolomites, for incredible hiking and skiing. in retrospect, i wished we had lingered there. every 10 minutes was another town, with comfortable looking inns lining the single streets that snaked through them. wished i had done a lot of things, like take more photographs...but the visions are still brandished brightly in my mind, i can still smell the fresh air.
in south tirol, approaching the it…

Yes it's true: it's really beautiful to drive for that places; the Alps are wonderful! Did you see my "Roadtrip in Europe" blog? I took some pictures from Tirol to Munich :)
