Our two days and nights parked-up at Gastof Friedburg in Neukirchen were spent charging all things electrical, catching-up on washing and walking (in between the downpours and thunderstorms which have made an appearance every late afternoon and evening for the past umpteen days!). We had a fab view from our sleepy spot, overlooking the Wildkogel … Continue reading A Mixed Bag Of Weather Systems Dampens Team Sebo’s Salzburgerland Spirits
Our excitement at arriving in Mayrhofen was somewhat tempered by the disappointment of discovering that our hoped-for (cheapish) sleepy spot at the Parascending School was a) already full and b) reserved for clients of said establishment at this time of year! Fair enough! Not wanting to pay megabucks for a pitch at the town's only … Continue reading Weekend Meanders in Mayrhofen, An Awesome View Of The Hintertux Glacier And Krimml Waterfalls And A Two Night Stay In The Wildkogel.
Our ascent of Mount Wank on Tuesday was pretty uneventful - it was quite arduous zig-zagging our way up the 1000m elevation but we managed to do it in a much shorter time than the signposts predicted so we treated ourselves to a drink at The Wankhaus restaurant at the top in recognition of our … Continue reading From The Zugspitze To The Zillertal – With A Few Other Places In Between.
As we reluctantly pulled away from our rather luxurious pitch at Camp Alpin in Seefeld on Saturday morning, we headed for the German Border, just south of Mittenwald in Bavaria, to top-up our LPG tanks. Not having a proper gauge on the tanks, we thought we might be running a little low and, not wanting … Continue reading Popping Into Bavaria On A Quest For Readily Available LPG!
Since we'd left our Igls sleepy spot bright and early on Tuesday morning and driven straight to Seefeld in Tirol (all of 45km if we include the slight detour to an LPG station just outside Innsbruck which we then discovered we couldn't actually access unless we bought a vignette and used the motorway! Grrrrr. It'll wait!), … Continue reading Mountain Huts And Aching Limbs In Seefeld In Tirol.
Our drive down to Bolzano on Sunday took us over The Passo di Mendola aka Mendelpass - a series of fourteen hairpin bends (with a width restriction of 2.30m, through which we only just managed to squeeze!) down into Sud Tirol which is, we later discovered, where the native language suddenly switches from Italian to … Continue reading Crossing The Passo Di Mendola To Bolzano Then Into Austria!
The drive up to The Dolomites took us past Riva Del Garda and Verona and, whilst we really enjoyed the our time at Lake Garda in April and have yet to venture to Verona, we passed both by on this occasion since it was still way too hot to contemplate mooching around a city - … Continue reading The Dizzying Heights Of The Dolomites!
On our second day in the mountains, we attempted to walk the hills around our sleepy spot at Campigna in ridiculously hot weather - we didn't venture too far, to be honest, and tried to keep in the shade of the forest as much as we could because, considering we were at 1400m above sea … Continue reading Two Very Different Long Weekends For The Three Members Of Team Sebo!
Our drive from Ravenna to Florence on Thursday, unlike the previous day's pretty boring schlepp down the totally flat and straight E55, Strada Romanae (Roman Road- and it was, in all senses!) was an awesome one - around a seemingly endless series of S-bends, on recently resurfaced road (turns out this is one of the … Continue reading Hitting Florence In A Heatwave Was Not One Of Our Better Ideas!
Yes, folks, Team Sebo successfully negotiated The Vršič Pass, also known as the Ruska Cesta (Russian Road) on Sunday afternoon after decamping from our pitch at Camping Bled. This time, we avoided all motorways and drove through THE most awesome mountain scenery until we reached the beginning of The Pass - a 14% gradient was a … Continue reading Vršič Pass – An Awesome Drive For Team Sebo!
