Trip to the mountains

Nothing too eventful to report on, but had such a beautiful day in the mountains I just had to share. Monday was a holiday in Italy, so it was the perfect opportunity to take a little jaunt. There is a restaurant called Rifugio Kubelek near the town of Asiago. This place has the MOST amazing views, fantastic food, and just a great atmosphere to come and enjoy a nice day with friends. So with a group from Firenza, Padova, Reggio Emilia, and Vicenza, we made the most of a gorgeous sunny day. I had hoped to see Asiago as well, but by the time we made it over there it was dark, so that will be another field trip. It never fails to amaze me the amount of history every single place you go around here; once again this valley was a location of conflict during WWI, and as you look down the hillside you can see grave markers from nearly 100 years ago. Anyway, enjoy the views, and if anyone would like to visit for themselves, I will happily accompany you up there!
