Thrilling Turandot

The summer storm threatened to fall all day. But Franz and I were in luck. As the evening came the skies lightened and we were thrilled because we had tickets to the Bregenzer Festspiele. This years lavish opera was Giacomo Puccini’s Turandot on our own Lake Constance in Bregenz, Austria.

Birthday in Heaven

The turquoise blue skies graced with billowing white clouds were reflected in a small pool beside a burbling stream. In the distance the familiar clanging of cow bells mingled with the occasional chirping of birds could be heard in the peaceful enclave. We were in hiking heaven.

Ski Touring in the Dolomiti

As we closed the doors of our car at the end of the narrow valley near San Vigilio di Marebbe in South Tyrol we entered a landscape seemingly out of the minds of fantasy movies like Lord of the Rings. Sahara sand had left yellow patches everywhere which gave the scenery an even more bizarre look.
