Gingerbread houses covered in icing sugar

Yesterday was the Sellaronda bike day with a circuit of mountain passes closed to traffic for bikes to enjoy. The narrow winding roads without the kamikaze motorcyclists who like the pass on the blind corners was indeed bliss for descending the dozens of switchbacks and hairpin bends that looked like spaghetti strewn across the mountain side.

Whilst the weather wasn’t great for riding we made it up the passo Gardena before the drenching rain set in. I turned back (of course) and Drew carried on (of course), he has now proudly ticked off 7 passes in 2 days – including the notorious Giau.

So today was a planned rest day… With maybe a little hiking up the green grassy fields we can see from our balcony above – but we awoke to this picture postcard view instead!

I couldn’t think of anywhere nicer in the world to be snowed in!
