You are right. That’s not the Netherlands. Regarding landscape it is the exact opposite.

A long time ago I read a book by Cees Nooteboom. The title of its english translation: In the Dutch Mountains. It’s also a song of one of my favourite groups: The Nits. Reasons enough to use this title for my blog post.

The place with the magical mountains is Italy or South Tyrol to be more precise. It once belonged to Austria but since the small country I call my home was stupid enough to start a world war it had to be punished. After WW1 Austria lost almost 90% of its territory. It lost its access to the sea and it lost this beautiful part of Tyrol. But most of the people in South Tyrol call German their first language and since their are no real borders within Europe and we all use the same currency it still feels like home except that the coffee tastes better.

This is the first time since 2012 that we did not spend our vacation in the South West of the USA but stayed in Europe. Of course I missed the wide landscapes and the deserts but I enjoyed that fact that I simple drove here instead of spending almost a whole day in planes. We visited Meran first but went to the mountains soon to get away from the heat.
