28.10.14 Left Vaile Di Caises this morning under a very heavy frost. Thought we would outsmart Bruce the navigator and avoid the Autostrada. It did work and he took us into the Dolomites over Cortina above the tree line with great views which you will see. He also scared the willies out of us with windy steep roads the kind of switch backs you see in the Tour De France. Anyhow our wisdom to avoid the Autostrada turned a two and a half our trip into ...
Today we went to Villa Di Catullo, which is an ancient castle left in ruins after many years. Apparently you are not allowed to stand any of the rocks, we found out when the boys were posing on a rock for a photo and we suddenly heard a woman madly blowing her whistle from 100m away yelling at them to get down!

magnificent Fossil watch in one of the shops. We walked from one end
of the town and back again, taking in ...
... it was a wonderfully
attractive place, soon confirmed as we walked into the cobbled
streets border with cafés and shops. We spotted the ferry berth and
the approaching 1960s hydrofoil, straight out of a James Bond film.
We suddenly realised that we could make it after all and dashed to
the ticket office to get our hop-on hop-off all day tickets. The
boat paused briefly as we boarded and took off on a two hour trip to
the top of the lake. The waves rolling down ...
