We enjoyed a quiet evening in Ampezzo and awoke to the wonderful views of the hills and mountains surrounding us. Four other motorhomes join us overnight, but by the time we are servicing the Hymer only one is left.
We depart feeling a little guilty, we did not walk uptown and explore Ampezzo, given they provided such a lovely sosta for free. But such is the camper-car lifestyle. You can only do, what your can.
Back on the road the scenery only gets more dramatic.
We return to the Hymer to find the car-park is full. We have lots of German and Austrian neighbors tonight. We do a little planning for tomorrow, maybe a gondola to the moutain top ? We put the thermal blancket on the Hymer’s windsceen as Cortina d’Ampezzo is at over 1600m (asl). You can already tell it will be a chilly night….
