The Life in the Dolomites - Italy
The Dolomites have been on my must see list for at least 10 years. I love the mountains. There are actually 9 different Dolomite regions. Where to go? I chose the Alpe di Siusi area near the towns of Siusi and Castelrotto as it sounded perfect. And perfect it was! The high, green meadows that sit at the base of these imposing peaks are so nice to just, well, sit down in and take in the views. And there is some great hiking too. Onion domed churches are quite popular in this region too. I sat in this meadow that was just outside the town of Siusi and looked at the peaks, the sound of the cows mooing in the distance. Heaven. If you go, I recommend staying at Hotel Cavallino D'Oro in Castelrotto. Great service.
