Bit stormy last night, left plenty of nice fresh stuff up here. Calm & sunny all day skiing with friends. Awesome! grin

14:03

What. A. Day!!!! Couple of ski days in the legs this week but they seemed to go OK - bonus! grin

10:14

Another awesome day on the slopes (despite a bit cloudy to start). And look who's joined in - yay! smile

17:04

Sunset driving home. Glorious sun on the peaks, miserable & grey down below all day. Moral of the story: ski more! wink

10:13

First week of December & on the slopes already! Awesome conditions for this time of year. More of the same please! smile

12:11

The local church had some amazing singers performing today, so we stopped by in our 'Sunday Best' wink Spectacular day!

10:51

More autumn colours walking close to home. Don't worry - it's going to start snowing again soon! wink

12:40

At last - cycling in Sunshine! Stunning autumn colours have been hiding most of the month but today all was forgiven.

08:38

Sunrise double rainbow. Beautiful. Guess this month's constant rain can have some advantages.

12:02

Tonne up North to Lac du Gabas. Could be last sunshine for a long time but what a day to end our endless summer! wink

13:38

Two nights in San Sebastian: Eat, sleep, eat, sleep, eat, shop, eat, sleep, eat, sleep, eat. Yes: *two* nights! wink grin

17:59

See what happens when you say, "pretty please" wink Perfect conditions for an arvo ride. And post ride refreshments! grin

08:16

Beautiful sunrise this morning. Clouds are pretty and all, but they can go away now... pretty please! smile

13:20

Impromptu lunch... just because we were passing smile And dish of the day is pork filet mignon... Nom, nom, nom! tongue

15:39

Last day of 'summer' (in October!)? Tourmalet loop this morning. Beer by (friend's) pool this arvo! Perfect thx guys!

12:41

October Tourmalet in full summer kit. Amazing conditions but think that's last of the year. Now bring on the snow! grin

13:43

Am guessing some of you will be keen to drop by & chat about our recent trip? Especially the German leg? wink Prost! grin

17:48

After 3 weeks away the lawn didn't go too mad, but still hours of mowing! Small bonfire too. Roast snail anyone? wink

07:41

Sunrise at French motorway services. Views around here were fantastic from the road but no photos while driving! smile

13:00

Crossing a surprisingly clear river Rhine on today's ride... where the Swiss/German border was also crossed 5 times!

17:52

On the shores of Untersee. We were last guests of the season in this campsite & they gifted us the stay! Danke! smile

11:49

Dragged into another bakery in the Black Forest. Well... one has to compare & contrast the local fare, yes? wink

11:36

Feeding the ducks on a quick stop in Schiltach. What an idyllic little place.

15:50

Ziegler's BACKloft... in the Black Forest. Oh... if we must... wink tongue

08:28

German breakfast at our birthday girl friend's. Thank you guys - generous as always. Nom, nom, nom! tongue

Pre-birthday - which became actual birthday grin - celebrations with friends. Happy birthday Claudia! Always fun! smile

12:30

Willkommen in Deutschland. Prost!

18:33

Dinner in Rothenburg ob der Tauber. Pork with awesome crackling, apple something dessert & more beer of course. Prost!

17:03

Rothenburg ob der Tauber in the rain... still a lovely place but let's find somewhere warm to eat and drink! grin

16:32

Little forest walk to the shore of Brombachsee.

16:22

Microbrewery next to this evening's camp. Sadly closed for the season, doh! Oh well - next time sad

09:31

Imagine sleeping in a tent in an exhibition centre car park? No thanks! Thankful for the relatively luxurious snail!

12:00

We accidentally find ourselves in Munich, in October. Oops! wink Beer, best pork knuckle ever & other treats. Prost! grin

10:43

You know it's classy accommodation when you have to wear one of these, right...? Ermmmm... right? wink

18:55

We've been gifted with some spectacular light these last two days by Chiemsee. Always a treat when it's like this.

12:33

Today's ride: lovely sunny loop from Chiemsee round by Reit im Winkl & return. Felt flat as a pancake! grin

07:24

Waking up to a beautiful day by Chiemsee... going to be a good one! smile

18:42

Sunset by Chiemsee. Spectacular! Feel like we could be on a Pacific island - if not for Alps on the horizon wink

17:32

More random pics from a lakeside campsite. Gotta love out of season travel - this place would be packed in summer!

14:47

Another beautiful, yet pretty much deserted camping location by Putterersee in Austria smile

10:37

Morning tootle on the bike. Austrian valleys, lakes, churches & castles under brilliant blue skies. Beautiful stuff.

10:31

Durrensee: Passed this nice little lake on the way down the valley. Love stumbling across this kind of thing smile

19:18

Candlelight dinner by the twinkling lights of Putterersee - which sadly are barely visible here but we enjoyed wink

11:58

Entered Austria & heading East towards Lienz. Beautiful views & pretty quite roads make for an enjoyable drive.

09:48

Waking up to blue skies by a little stream. Lovely as it is time to say goodbye to the Dolomites. It's been great!

09:49

Stunning scenery & brutal gradients. Passes Falzarego, Valparola, Falzarego - again wink - & Giau. Utter perfection.

13:13

Clouds cleared as we were looking for a lunch spot so: beer & pizza in sunshine! Yes, quite big. Yes, ate the lot! tongue

12:04

Cortina d'Ampezzo, what a beautiful place. Would love to ski from here one day, although it does feel very A-list!

11:09

Transfer day wink Views between La Villa & Cortina d'Ampezzo. Limited scope though due to overcast conditions sad

14:11

Rest day stroll around La Villa - just a few paths & tracks on the edge of the village. Beautiful.
