The more we look, the more there is….this is never ending!! What a stunning place…and we had NO idea. Listen to the locals!!









Joerg from MotoMader had mentioned the Old Town being something special but hadn’t let on, what to expect. Sure glad we followed the advice!!











That post has sure seen a few centuries


Open drains…the neat way

Someone taking a Sunday bath…..GOTCHA!! 10X zoom does that…



“Town Church”…rebuilt 1471-78 in place of an earlier church…the bell tower from 1442 was re-used and extended in 1663.
The organ from 1728, total renovation in the mid-60s….ahhhh, 1960 that is.





YES….rego for pushies!!


The local stone mason….glued to the old city walls











We’re just standing there, mouth agape….drooling!!







Then this…one sign above the entrance, the other carved into a stone below.
All up it looks like this used to be some children’s hospital or surgery at some time.
Chindli=Kind=Child….Chirurgo Publico Aloysius = surgery-public-Aloysius
Alosyius’s Public Children Hospital?

A couple of shots after leaving the magical old town…a bike (scoot?) rack with nothing locked


And some weird modern-day plastic of all sorts of storybook-characters


Back to Muhen and some superb refreshments along the way….Moike just HAD to give this a go !!




…and onto the bikes !! Slowly walking along fields and paddocks, carrying helmets and gear… MotoMader is only 20 mins away.

Then it’s onto adjusting bars and mirrors, fixing the RAM mounts and all that.




…with advice from above.


The search for some grub proves a bit harder tonight, everything…but EVERYTHING…. is closed!!

We finish up at a lonely Pizzeria near the very end of the 3km main street.


The poor guys didn’t know what hit them…but came up with some good pizzas and a couple of bottles of vino in the end.


Even had a nosy visitor…the local hedgehog


After that vino things got a bit hazy….




Finally back at Tornanti HQ….

…where Marty found something else to play with


Can’t wait for the morning!!

I thought we discussed what happens on the trip, stays on the trip?

I mean, I can handle it, but what about poor old Daisy, she did nothing wrong and now she has to explain her actions.... silly old cow anyway


Now I am not looking forward to the pics of the valley in Switzerland with Doris the Goat
