Six Hours on Seiser Alm

1 Jul


I am resting in my hotel in Ortisei after a long first day’s hike. I won’t lie. The uphill steep paths in the thin air were taxing, but coming down was hard on the knees. We were up on Seiser Alm (Alpe di Siusi) for six hours after a long and very high cable car ride.But the scenery was beyond unbelievable. I have so many photos. I will tease you with one right now.  The WE are four of us. Marion (lead guide and Olympic snowboarder), Donatella (the second guide), Vladimir (from Moscow), and me. I am tired and am ready to have dinner, so this post will be short. I am relaxing in a spacious high tech room with a terrace where I can look up to one of the landmarks of the Dolomites, Sasso Lungo. I step off the elevator where it is dark, and as soon as I move the lights come on and they continue to turn on as I walk down the hall toward my room. Hotel Grones is a 4-star hotel and it is so modern and beautiful. A wonderful place to call home after hiking all day.

        My favourite home remedy for staving off colds – a glass of hot water with a slice of lemon, a slice of ginger root, and a spoon of honey, several times a day. Soothes the throat, clears the sinuses, and gives you a boost of vitamin C. I hope you feel better soon, Rosemarie!

    Oh man I want to be hiking in the Alps (or Pyrenees or whatever) mountains right now! I think the best of Europe is within sight of the spine.
