It’s a muggy afternoon and I’m home in the country, under the air con, escaping the shimmery 40 degree heat outside. It’s always a struggle to crack open the laptop on the weekend (mainly because my 9-5 has me glued to a screen) but there’s so much from our time in Europe I want to share that today’s heat is as good an excuse as any.
I want to start with probably one of our favourite outdoor experiences – hiking and eating our way through the Italian Dolomites. Since we’ve come back to Australia, the number one thing we’ve been asked about is our time in Italy, particularly what it was like to stay in the Italian Rifugios (mountain huts).
The Dolomites are one of the most beautiful parts of the world we have been lucky enough to explore. Nothing prepares you for the combination of oh-so-perfect Italian villages surrounded by tall, jagged, snow capped mountains towering in all directions. The huge number of hikes and trails leading to picturesque rustic mountain huts is a feast for the eyes and the ‘gram (I promise, you literally cannot take a bad photo).
