omg. a cold front.

non ci credo. hard to believe, but in the news yesterday: a "cold front". after two cloudy days and a temperature drop from 30 to 22 °c, they're wondering on the third day bringing, indeed, lots of rain, what happened to the awaited hot summer. truly.

yes, everything is relative, and that's how it is here, everyone gets upset by only one single insignificant cloudy or rainy day. on the other hand, they say that we need more rain… er… or rather the nature needs it, and ideally at night. which, i must confess, would meet my principle too. anyway. today, everybody is happy again: bright blue sky returned, it's getting hot and hotter.

seriously. we're spoiled by the weather, the season and the beautiful nature. and with our new e-mtb, we can now switch outdoor activities between hiking and biking, discovering mountains and valleys with a different view.
like up to almost 900 m at masulschlucht gorge in the val passiria.
or a afternoon roundtrip of 65 km to bolzano to enjoy once again this delicious apfelstrudel at "stadt cafè città".
or a day trip through the val venosta to glurns and back (120 km).
or up above 1,300 m on the mountain of velloi – ultimate apfelstrudel at the kienegg inn!
our last was a day roundtrip of 84 km to lake caldaro, sulla strada del vino. just beautiful. it's somewhat similar to the provence there, with the vineyards, cypress and a more southern architecture.

else: part a of us is back on job, and now officially an italian taxpayer. part b is still challenging itself with italian language – imperfect-pluperfect-subjunctive-conditional and all these words i cannot keep in mind… oh my poor brain!
