A few Days in Italy in Fall 2017 Part 1

The last few days with blue sky before the Winter 2017/2018 trip. Where to go? What to do? Over the Alps where the sky is still blue and the temperature is fine – at last in the daytime! So Italy is was – a nice road trip before Asia. Here are a few pictures:

1 Night in Sankt Anton am Arlberg

We started late so we had to sleep one night in Sankt Anton since driving in the night does not make sense if you want to enjoy the landscape! We stayed at Alexandra Alber Villa Schlosskopf. We had a nice small room with private bathroom. We never saw Alexandra – her children took care of us. From the check-in to making the breakfast (which was very good) to the checkout.
