The summer comes slowly again. Here the question arises again – Mare / Monti? Mountain or sea? Meanwhile I can’t imagine a better combination than first spending a week in the mountains and then relaxing at the sea. From South Tyrol you certainly have a great starting position here. Down to Italy (yes – South Tyrol is in Italy, but as a South Tyrolean you always say “down to Italy”) it’s only a few hours to the sea. But for now, we’ll stay here in this beautiful region of Italy.
Today there is a sporty tip on the Alpe di Siusi. Last summer I had the pleasure of going on an e-bike tour on the Alpe di Siusi with one of my best friends Marc. Marc as a local knows not only on the Alm geographically, but also historically super. He knows the Alm inside out.
In winter I always spend a lot of time on the alp. Snowed in, it is also a dream. No less impressive is the mountain panorama in summer. The view of the Schlern, however, always remains spectacular. No less exciting is the view in the direction of Val Gardena with Langkofel and Plattkofel. You can see this particularly well in the picture above.
Did you know that the Alpe di Siusi is the highest mountain plateau in Europe?
With the cable car from Siusi you can ride your e-bikes up to the plateau and from there you can ride the entire plateau within a few hours on the various bike trails. It’s crazy that with e-bikes everything is now so easily accessible. However, we were lucky and the alp was not very crowded.

KNÖDELTRIS as strengthening
We rode all the way to the “back” to Saltria and stopped for a bite to eat at the Tirler. I could not miss a delicious traditional Knödeltris.
The Tirler – Dolomites Living Hotel is also a wonderful 4* hotel with a great position in the middle of the nature reserve.
Once again a wonderful experience at home. But next time I will be without electric and with my new gravel bike.
The crocos bloom in Jenesien and Mölten is every year again a natural spectacle. Every spring, the meadows of the Salten and in Mölten turn into a sea of croc blossoms. Many years I had the misfortune not to see it myself. This year it happened to be at the same time when I was at home. I could not miss the crocos bloom in Jenesien / Mölten.
I was working at home a week before Easter. After a busy day at work, an evening walk was just what I needed. Breathing in and out slowly (although rather gasping for air very quickly after my condition was super bad after Corona). Enjoying the quiet of the forest and then the meadow plain.
We took a shortened route and looked for the flower on the fastest way from Bolzano. Vom Gasthaus Edelweiss in Jenesien kann man entspannt zehn Minuten hoch auf den Salten spazieren. There we already encountered the first white to purple colored crocos flowers.
The longer hike leads from the parking lot Tschermoos up to the Möltner Kaser and from there you can also continue up to the Stoanernen almonds – two highlights in one. At the alp Möltner Kaser you can also stop for a bite to eat. A call in advance can not hurt there, because in spring the opening hours vary.
On the way back, we enjoyed the wonderful view of the Catinaccio with its famous peaks, as well as the Sciliar of the Alpe di Siusi. Oh yes – we also met a few Haflinger horses, which were just returned to their pasture.
Have a nice day!

This year I turn our apartment again into a small Christmas market. Our tree is still waiting to be decorated. This I’m catching up on the weekend. I had already fetched him in time for the First Advent. Plant accompaniment gets the green giant with a beautiful winter bouquet.
Send flowersTHE HOLIDAY COLLECTION
Fresh flowers just make the room feel more alive. I enjoy it every morning when I first see it on the living room table. In the evening in the dim light, the flowers also appear completely different again.
“I have everything, I do not need anything”
Personally, I am also someone who has everything. Especially on birthdays or Christmas, I just never know what I should wish for. I have not kept a wish list for a long time. Flowers are therefore such a wonderful gift. Everyone is happy to receive them. Plus, sending flowers has become so easy these days. Flowers at Christmas? Sure. There are wonderful winter and Christmas flowers.
bloomon is just launching its new Holiday Collection. You can already order my Darling bouquet. More limited bouquets starting December 7 and 8.
The bouquets are shipped directly from partner nurseries, shortening the supply chain
The flowers are conveniently delivered directly to the door. Fresh cut do not forget to add the supplied Liquid Gold for the flowers in the water! My bouquet is now still beautiful after 1.5 weeks. Good quality flowers just last that much longer.
Table decorations for a Christmas brunch can achieve full effect even without much decoration. For me, a few Christmas baubles, tea lights and gold tones on the table are enough. This way, the Christmas bouquet of flowers will not steal the show either.

I hope you enjoyed a peek into my Christmas dining area. We’ll read from each other again very soon.
I’m slowly falling back into my winter truck – curled up on the sofa and best not to leave the apartment for the whole weekend. While I have the whole summer really bumblebees in the butt, I try to slow down in the winter properly. Now it’s a few more weeks to grit my teeth and through the work weeks until the hours stand still for a few days. Christmas with the family, cozy in front of the stove, small gluttony with one or the other glass. I’m looking forward to it!
LOUNGE WEAR meet PARTY CROP-TOP
Home office time has started again. I really wonder when we will finally get off this hamster wheel. Party clothes are being swapped out again with lounge wear. Of course, it would be better if you can combine the two. I did.
I found the pretty (and really super cozy) set at Hunkemöller. The Black Friday Deals I could not really resist this year and it is yet landed some in the shopping cart. After a somewhat fancy top under the blazer I had been looking for some time and have also found. I also find the back detail particularly beautiful. In combination I would wear it but only at home. I’m looking forward to wearing it soon at a dinner with highwaist jeans and oversize blazer over it. I’m strongly hoping that the destination will stay open for the time being so that restaurants can stay open.
My past weekend was a mixed bag of activities, meeting friends, continuing to rearrange in the apartment (rearranging always just ends up rearranging) and a little bit of shooting. The blog has suffered here already something the last few months. I’m due to work unfortunately not come at all. For the coming year, however, I have resolved to provide you again more regularly with content. Promised.
