Northern Italian ski resort Lake Garda is a great part of the world, obviously it is a skiers paradise, however I was there in summer in July 2010, it was great being able to move around without the crowds and the snow. I also used it as a base to visit St Moritz & Salzburg.

Crazy Germans cyclists

Italian Alps

I met two crazy Germans who were  riding bikes at 8,500 ft on top of the mountains.
