I woke up in Trento. 156 km later, I'm in the rather stunning Venice. Quite a day.

Back in Italy, pass collecting. It's been a very long haul up from Lake Como and the Swiss lower valleys but satisfying.

Arrivederci Italia, pozdravi Slovenja! Western Europe has been fun, but there's still something to crossing an ex-Communist border silently at night...

The view from Rialto bridge in Venice on my last night here. I say it's still pretty.

The Stelvio pass descent, oh my word. I woke up on the glacier at 3200m, offroaded down to the road at 2800m, then had an unbroken road downhill to 950m. Total distance of unbroken downhill, 27km for 2250m of altitude at maximum off road speed 33kph, on road 64kph. Oh, and around 50 hairpin turns on the road. Wow.

Just spent the night camping on the glacier above the Stelvio pass, it's a beautiful view.

On the benefits of spending the night on the mountainside...
(Gandegghütte, Switzerland, just above Zermatt and below the Klein Matterhorn and related glaciers) This was halfway up the 4200 meter Breithorn climb.

A lovely, intimate venue with good sightlines to the stage. The hospitality packages aren't massively worth it given the amount of options in the area for a drink and a snack, but it's rather charming and pulls in good productions.

I stopped here for the restaurant rather than to sleep. The food is pub food but competent in a microwaved/fried kind of way, and although there was a 45 minute wait this was stated before ordering so it's workable. The saving grace is the outside tables looking out in the beach, which are stunning on a sunny day and will bring me back in future.

Good value and competent food. Not gourmet, but a lovely option for a filling lunch. The service is attentive but not overbearing, and the milkshakes are to die for. Recommended.

A lovely entrance elevator, although the signage is frankly poor. Set against that, the host was excellent (lovely coat) and the wildlife was amazing. A lovely night in with pretty much any member of the team is available on request.

A relatively outdated hotel, with a note in the room stating that it was a bad idea to use the windows. This proved true; the windows had no counterweights so wouldn't stay open. The panes were also cracked. This was combined with no air conditioning to make a sweaty night. The double room also had another double and single bed in it, and the breakfast was poor. I will avoid this hotel in future.

I accompanied someone in for a double nipple piercing, and both the service and the piercing itself were exemplary. Efficiently but professionally done, and Sophie the piercer was very pleasant to talk to.

One of the nicest gelatarias I've been to in Italy. It doesn't look that much from the outside, but inside the flavours are varied and have beautifully fresh and varied ingredients. All of the flavours I had were lovely, but my personal tip is the to die for ricotta, walnut and honey gelato. They also sell cakes and such, but I haven't tried them.
