Today i was reviewing old photos, stumbling on this collection form June 2013 for the Italian Dolomite region Alta Badia. I have visited a year before and am sad i will not get to go this year. Its a must again for next year.  The region was the host of of the 1956 winter Olympics and has been a popular Snow Ski Destination since. While i hesitate to let the secrete out, Alta Badia is one of the best summer experiences i have ever had! Hiking, Biking, lounging, good food and wine are to be had.
