Dolomites and Alps; Their original purpose

So the place this littel tale is about is the area of northern Italy which, since the olds remember, doesn’t want to belong to Italy, but still does anyway. Some call the place “Alto Adige”, others call it “Suedtirol”, again others just call it “Motorcyclist’s Paradise”. It’s not about politics in this report, actually it’s not even a ride report but much more a brief overview about the history of origins of one of the loveliest places for motorcyclists I know.


How ever one might call the place … All do know: This is the place where milk and honey flows. This is the spot on earth which God, the creator, did spoil so much with beauty, that arriving in the heat of this region indeed feels like arriving at the place one wants to remain for ever. Lakes, embedded between vineyards and rivers. The smell of grapes mixes with the perfume of millions of blooming flowers and the flavour of untouched forests.
