Another reluctant departure from Opatja but one must move on. The weather forecast was for "possible rain showers" What's new? Back on the motorways for some serious riding. The first part to Brescia,where I stayed overnight, was a 400 km run. A 400 km run? What the big deal you might say? Well, let me explain! Imagine yourself on a motorbike riding between the Gold Coast and Brisbane on a Friday ...
... way she was going to make it. We told her to speak to the Guard as apparently the train company in Italy will take care of hotels etc if you miss connections. The American traveller confirmed this with us as this had been the case for the last week as she'd missed every connection. We told her we knew the feeling.....eventually we rolled into Milan.....early evening is a good time to roll into Milan. We like Milan.
... out some clothes and hung them out on a clothesline in a super windy spot overlooking a glacier.
Dinner was a terrific risotto dish and pork in a cream sauce. Finally no cheese (were not in France anymore!). We sat across from an older British woman who was walking the whole hike by herself!
We had private room for oursleves which was a treat and we slept like the dead.
We have been in remote country for the last few days. Haven't seen a store, and rarely even a house since we left Les Contamines.
Our last refuge in France was de Mottets, quite a relief after the night before. Although it had been converted from a dairy farm, it had spacious, modern rest rooms, hot showers, semi-private bed room (Barbara only had to share with 3 guys this time).

... they bought out candles, not to be romantic, they were running low on electricity! For the same reason we had no lights in our cramped dorm rooms, so we had to undress by headlamp. They had no wastebaskets and refused to take any trash because it was too hard for them to haul away, the location being so remote. Too add insult to injury, it was one of the most expensive refuges (about $135 for the two of us).
