You Capture – “Fun”

10 Jun

As luck would have it, this week’s You Capture theme at I Should Be Folding Laundry is “fun.” Since I am currently on vacation having the most fun I have ever had on any vacation, I didn’t exactly struggle for material. Actually, it may even sort of be cheating. Sorry.

Okay, I’m not REALLY sorry. Like I said, I’m having fun. And since that’s this week’s theme, here’s some snapshots for proof…

Passo dello Stelvio

Passo dello Stelvio is in the Italian Alps, not very far from Switzerland and Austria. Actually, we’re staying near Innsbruck, so we rode through Austria into Italy specifically to traverse this pass. We did a little bit of riding in Switzerland on the way back, too.

It Was Cold at the Top

There’s a ski resort at the top. There’s not much snow left, but there’s a glacier, and people are still skiing.

ToadMama After Riding the Pass

I was quite happy to reach the top of this very challenging pass in one piece and without dropping my bike or riding off the side of the mountain.

Hubby was the first in our group to make it to the top.

This was THE coolest riding day ever for both of us.

The road actually winds down the side of the mountain below where Hubby is standing.

My bike perched atop Passo dello Stelvio.

This last shot is the only artsy one I took specifically for You Capture. If you want to see what other folks did for fun this week, be sure to visit Beth’s site.

  1. INCREDIBLE!!! First of all, the scenery, and second that you’re traveling in Europe! with your bikes! But most of all that you’re SO BRAVE!!!! And also that you’re joining You Capture from way over there. I haven’t seen everybody elses pictures yet but, I know for sure, YOU WIN!!!

  2. Stillmary, the bikes are rentals. We’re on a group tour thing. But they are awesome. I feel like I am driving in a motorcycle video game. 🙂

    When I saw this week’s “fun” theme, I knew I’d have something to share.

    I might not win for best picture, but I bet I am having the most fun. LOL

  3. Omg, these photos are amazing. I’m with stillmary on this…you totally win!

    I would say to have fun, but you clearly are. So keep up the good work!

  4. Holy crap! I’ve heard about that place! So glad you took pics etc.
    I bet its an amazing vacation. So cool. (Those Bm’ers look nice but you should have rented Ducs – wink wink)

    • Monstergirlee, your comment made me smile. “Ducs” (Ducati motorcycles for my readers wondering what that means) were an option, but we chose the BMWs. I’m glad, too. Because they were so much fun!
