Preparations

17 Feb

When you are planning a trip of a lifetime, you have to start planning early.  I began in January booking my weeklong hike in the Dolomites with Andiamo Adventours (not inexpensive).  Then I purchased travel insurance.  Next up…choosing my dates of arrival and departure and booking my flights ($1500 round trip) and purchasing flight insurance.  Done.  I will arrive in Zurich, Switzerland on June 22 and depart on July 15 via SwissAir.  Hotel in Zurich booked for first and last night at Hotel City Zurich.  Four nights in Luzern at the Cascada Swiss Hotel by the Hauptbahnhof, and finally a night in Bolzano, Italy at the Hotel Regina prior to the first day of the hike.  Other plans include four nights in Konstanz with my cousin Hannes Pfund, several nights in Salzburg with my former landlady Inge Orliczek, and a still to be determined visit to Munich to see my old college buddy Barton Weber.  Lowa hiking boots purchased and woolen socks (2 pair).  I need four. Thank you, REI. Our group will be hiking four to six hours a day from Bolzano (Bozen) to Cortina, overnighting in lovely hotels and inns. ipad at the ready for blogging and emails and uploading photos.  Practicing German on my ipad.  I haven’t forgotten much.  It just needs refurbishing and vocabulary. Bis später.
