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 snoozed when we got back to the van and had some warm left over curry for lunch.

We met at 7pm for drinks and a four course dinner was served at 8pm. Beautiful antipasto of local product, pasta, pork with potato and a cake slice. All very good fun as usual.
