Impressions from Lombardia, Veneto and Lake Garda…

…or:
YOU KNOW YOU'RE CLOSE TO HEAVEN WHEN....

….rocks don’t look like rocks but much more like paintings…



…you can have rocks, powder and motorcycles in one picture….



…the twisties invite you same…



…as the lakes do.




A cup of coffee is not just a papercup full of brown water…



…and food looks as it tastes: Fresh, colourfull and simply deliciouse!



The villages are built right BELOW ……



…or just ON anything that looks like a hill, mountain or A piece of solid rock rock.



…and “quality time” is not only a word.

Eventhough the boundarys are clearly indicated by nature AND men…


…there’s always people stretching them a bit, but not on the cost of beauty or the land.


Even in Heaven, evil forces try to bring darkness to the hearts of the happy.






Failing of course, as all the beauty which is spoiling a motorcyclist hart is way too nice to just give up and turn around.

As I always recommend in my RR’s: Do not forget to make a break on the nice spots!


Only those who are relaxed will be ready for all the challenges the day will offer.




Still the pro’s are following to this rule.


The shape of the beauty can have different faces:




A clear indicator that you are in Italy is, when the cars….


…will be as small and as equal inspiring as the balcony’s.


Many got inspired in this area and for some of these poets they even built special locations…


…where they could call out loud and to a quite big audience what they’d have to say and what they feel.

In heaven, even the nights are mild and colourful…


…and it’s love and beauty wherever you look.


But heaven is not only defined by landscape and blue sky. Heaven is also, where the pros of the big specialized journals test what’s to test and do thier job very much too the limits….



It's also where the restaurant’s bathrooms look nicer than many of the restaurants of the world…

…and where even the nonfamous’ names sound like melody.
