The mountain lodge Franzenshöhe closed its doors on the 04th October after several snowfalls on the Stelvio Pass. This days the temperatures reached almost summer feelings, almost perfect for an other trip on a motorbike. If you can't believe it, click on the weather forecast or on the webcam.

Wir müssen wiederkommen

Einmal nicht mit dem Motorrad unterwegs. Das war gut so, denn der Samstag war so verregnet, dass wir lieber Auto fuhren. Zurück aus Livigno sind wir in die Sauna gesprungen, um uns auf das Abendessen vorzubereiten. 5 gänge und einer leckerer als der andere. Das Gulasch war fantastisch. Mit vollem Bauch dann ab ins Bett und die frische Luft und die absolute Stille genossen. Das nächste Mal bestellen wir noch das gute Wetter vor und dann passt alles :-)
