Let’s go to Lago di Garda

Cycling day 12/67 km ~ From Loppio to Lazise/Lago di Garda

In the morning we were lucky again because of the fine weather – what a difference to my trip last year…

So I left the valley were Loppio is situated and continued to follow the cyclepath of the river Adige. The temperature climbed to 32 degrees but the landscape was outstanding.

After the lunch I had to leave the valley and cross some hills – and in a very small village I just stopped to refill water so an old man started a conversation where I come from and where to I’d like to go.

In the end I sat in the living room of Romeo and Julia (their real names as they promised me – brother and sister) and we drank a glass of homemade white wine. He visited Munich 50 years ago to watch the Olympics…

So finally after some serpentines downhill later you could experience the difference between the countryside and the lago – a big difference of money…

My first stop was in Bardolino and it was great to have done the second aim – Lago di Garda.

It was so crowded that I couldn’t realise how it would be like here in the high season.

I continued to Lazise and put up my tent at the Camping municipal which is okay for 19,- €. But don’t expect the quality of a small Agriturismo – worlds are lying between them.

You have a nice strip of stone beach and the water was refreshing – cool! 😁

In the evening I went out to explore the old town and it was full of life – and you can meet also nurses from your hood…

Part Three – From Italy back home over the alps to Bavaria

So now we are on the last part of my trip – starting with a wonderful (short) boat trip over the Lago di Garda from Manerba to Garda. From here I´d like to make a walk on
one of the surrounding mountains.
After that I´ll continue along the eastern coast road of the lake which is a fantastic
place for surfers up in the north of it. So I come back into the Adige Valley and cycle
up to Bolzano where I´ve booked already a youthhostel for one night.

As I know the cyclepath from the other side I´m going to take the train up to the
Brennero Pass – this will cost me many points in the ranking 😉

Back in Austria my way will lead my down to Innsbruck using the old road and
having a night on a cool campsite at the Natterer See including an organic food shop.

On my last kilometers along the River Inn I´m going to cross the german border
in Kiefersfelden and go back to my hometown…

This will be a – hopefully – sunny and relaxing holiday with some ascents –
looking forward to my upcoming trip!
