Boiled the kettle (aka saucepan) for our first cup of tea. It's cold!! The rain only got heavier, so we decided to give the ride a miss and go for a Wienerschnitzel instead! After lunch we walked to another cafe to use their wifi. We started with hot chocolate and apple strudel, and finished with a beer! After dinner we chatted again with Adele and Trevor, then we watched a movie in bed! It's so ...
We got up early and did a 50km loop before the forecast storms. Was a lovely ride! We went over Passo Compolongo (opposite direction), Passo Falzarego and Passo Valparola.

We drove to Corfinio where we sat in the main piazza and had coffee before visiting a monastery ...

The town was very cultured with a couple of jewellery shops where I treated myself to a ring that was made by the old man who sold it to me. He is the 13th generation of his family to work in the shop. It was fascinating. We also bought a scarf and a wall hanging made from local wool from a charming talented lady.
