Making a comeback?

I have an old book titled The Alps, by Otto Siegner. It’s filled with wonderful old photos like this one of the Tre Cime di Laveredo, also known as the Drei Zinnen in German, meaning three peaks. These three impressive peaks stand proudly in a much larger mountain range known as the Sexten Dolomites of Northeastern Italy.

These peaks originally formed part of the border between Italy and Austria, but now they lie on the border between the Italian provinces of Bolzano-Bozen and Belluno. Today they form part of the linguistic boundary between the German and Italian speaking regions of this awesome mountain range, the Dolomites.

It just so happens that hikers on our Cortina and Lakes of the Dolomites Adventure get to spend a night in a comfortable alpine hut, (hiking access only), directly beneath these towering peaks. Even better, we’re offering a special $300 discount per person for guests that register for this tour before May 25th, 2009. Click here to read more about our Spring Special.

It’s too bad that our guests don’t dress like this anymore, (although a few have come close). Nickers ARE making a comeback though, and I can only hope that argyle socks aren’t too far behind.
