On our way up to the Dolomites, we first stopped at a little gem of a restaurant, Tobia De Cuck. Talk about pure, home cooked deliciousness. Monica, the restaurant owner, and her daughter were front of house, and welcomed us warmly. The hearty vegetable soup was to die for. And, if you, like me, thought you never did care for apple strudel, Monica's strudel would change your mind. Really.
Not long after, we arrived at Moserhof, our two night bed and breakfast destination, where I fell in love with the decorative touches of red gingham pattern fabric. Perhaps it was the rich quality and thread count of the fabric, yet with the humble look and comfort of one's grandmother's well cared for linens that stole my heart. I failed to ask my "photographer" to capture some photos of the fabric; however, you can get a glimpse of it by visiting the inn's website. An early morning stroll around the grounds gifted me an earful of clucking chickens and mooing cows from the barn located below the inn.
Now, aren't the Dolomites and Lake Braies(or Prags if you speak German) impressive? I think so. Dolomite-y impressive.
The following day we tooled around a bit more, taking advantage of access to some moderate impact hiking areas.
And, though not on our itinerary, Austria was just a stone's throw away; we crossed the "border" just for amusement's sake.
Allora........ stay tuned for a most well planned Tuscan experience and where I laid my head to rest for four fabulous nights.
