    The forecast was ominous, but when I walked the dog it was looking like a pretty nice morning. We had more or less decided to have a day off the bikes, so the mrs. stayed put while I did a quick morning loop of some 60 miles (still took me 2 hours).

    Passo Nigra:

    The low clouds make those pictures even better! You seem to have been away for ages-how many more days to go?

    After having walked the dog and having had breakfast we set off East, to the Passo San Pellegrino (no pics, didn’t stop…). Next the Passo Vallaza, very pretty.

    Next stop before heading home was the Passo Carreza (Karersee). As beautiful as always.

    Last ride of our holiday, and what a day for it! We got the mesh jackets out, and set off for a clockwise ride of the Sella circuit. We had only done this anti-clockwise before, so again, a completely different experience.

    First stop, the summit of Passo Sella. Gorgeous, especially in this weather.

    Next up and over Passo Gardena, stopping just before Passo Campolonga.

    After the Campolonga up Passo Pordoi, where we enjoyed a nice cold beverage…

    A very nice route today!

    I was late to your brilliant trip thread, Wim, but the good news (for me) is that I got to view the whole thing at once! Kind of like binging on a TV series instead of waiting to watch an episode each week. ;):joy: What incredibly glorious scenery! :heart_eyes: And I love the way you and Mrs. V travel— with your sweet pup along for the fun and all your yummy eating and drinking. Thank you for taking the time to share photos and commentary about your adventures! :heart: P.S. It was fun to see the video of Mrs. V. :) P.P.S. How are you healing up??

    Slowly but surely, Sandi. It's a lenghty process I'm afraid. But at least I can ride!

    Glad you liked it! Educational for her, as well! Also, you get a good sense of how steep those passes are, when you see oncomers disappear on the road below!
