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 :-)

We appreciate feedback. Please explore the guestbook
