Our first stop is the town of Dobbiaco, or Toblach as the locals would have it. It’s a typical alpine town. We are impressed by the churchyard. Every gravesite is immaculately tended. You can see that no one is forgotten here. There is one monument with two brothers who died in the 2nd. World War.

A trouble free short run of about 150 km and we ended up at a camp in a little town called Leifers or Laives depending on the map you are reading - amazingly, this part of Tyrol only had its autonomy established as recently as 11 June 1992, and after plowing through the ...
