We drove from Pula and after an overnight stop in Feltre, continued north in Italy via Lana and through the spectacular Stelvio Pass. No wonder motorcycle company's use this road for the release of their new bikes as it it very technical and very picturesque !!! While enjoying hotdogs at the top of the pass, we met a school teacher from Rosebud ( Victoria ) who recommended a stop in Bormio. What a good call. We stayed in a quaint hotel with two balconies - one ...

1564. The Valtellina Valley

Day 236 3 hrs, 6 kms Day totals: 16 hrs, 31.4 kms Valtellina has quite a different feel than Val Camonica. Val Camonica felt more industrial, cramped with an elevated highway speeding through the center.

I walk straight through, down the glitzy main street lined with expensive restaurants and shops. Technically this is a highlight of my journey: crossing a mountain pass, but it ...

Day 236 8 hrs, 12 kms Next morning I must finally bid farewell to Breno, which almost feels like home now after 3 nights. I'd love to stay here longer... but a long road ahead awaits me. I catch the bus to Edolo, and immediate set out west for my final ascent up to the Aprica pass. Today I've got to switch back to carrying all my gear--and it's the first day that I'll have to do some serious uphill climbing. That's fine. ...
