Walking in Süd Tirol

Haven’t done much to or with my Triumphs lately. I even managed to go on holiday in the Alps with a friend’s Nissan Almera. But that was on purpose, I just wanted a quiet and relaxed holiday to aid my recovery. So I put on my walking boots, packed my camera’s and went to explore the Passeier Tal in Süd Tirol on foot. A short photographic impression;

The rather rural beer garden of Gasthof Christl;


The little hamlet of Magdfeld bathing in the late evening sun;


A nice original Lancia Flavia 1.8 in need of some tender loving care in the Spa city of Meran;


Grave monuments against a wall behind the parish church of Sankt Nikolaus (Meran);


Old mural advert in Meran


The lovely Gilfpromenade running along the River Passer (Meran)


Past Glory in the backstreets of Meran


Views of the Pfelderer Tal, close to the Timmelsjoch





During an almost traditional early evening rain shower in Sankt Martin


Views of the Passeier Tal  and Kalm Tal from the Fagls Alm




On the Jaufenkamm






On the slopes of the Hirzer/Passeier Tal




As mentioned in an earlier post, walking makes thirsty . . .


And to end a nice week we were chased away by some rain in the evening
