My way through Italy and the donation for ‘Doctors without borders’

I’m really happy about this great article in our local newspaper “Trostberger Tagblatt”.

Just because of your help the online donation site collected 125,- € and a donation box in our “Trostberger Weltladen” (a small shop for fairtade and organic goods run by volunteers) was ‘fed’ with also 125,- € by our costumers – absolutely fabulous!

The online donation site is open till end of July for your help 😉

Thanks a lot for your support to help people in need!!!

From Spittal to Tarvisio – Benvenuto in Italia!

Cycling day 5/84 km

Leaving Spittal this morning I had sun in my eyes – just great! Following the river Drau it was easy to reach Villach but I didn’t visit the city as I’d like to go into the countryside.

Cycling along the Drau is a little bit like making the Danube cyclepath – always straight and a little bit boring… but it’s okay.

Making a turn and following the small and more wild river of Gail was much more fun! Interesting nature and a nice cyclepath.

So after about 60 km there were some ascent to do – approaching the Austrian-italian border – or what is left of it.

Is didn’t watch out and missed the beginning of the italian part of the cyclepath – just a small path on your right-handside goes up a little bit.

So now there came the most nicely part of the day – through the woods and in the end following a former railway track – you can find even the old signs on the track.

After 84 km I reached my hotel – they’ve got pizza with organic ingredients – and this I didn’t know before! 😁
