Hiked for 6 days on European path E5: from Bolzano to Timmelsjoch on Austrian border.
Average 13 kilometers per day, 600 meters up and 600 meters down. We only did 77 km in the Italian regions of South Tirol. The trail itself extends further north to Lake Constance and beyond and south to Verona.
Delved into Celtic and prehistory by visiting museums in Bolzano, Stuttgart and Zurich.
Experienced the modern architecture of Le Corbusier at Notre Dame du Haut in Ronchamp France and Stuttgart Germany.
