April 18th: 10 Hikes in Italy’s Dolomites

Four valleys and nine hikes in the Dolomites

The Dolomites area of northern Italy is a beautiful and historic region presenting hikers, climbers, and bicyclists, and skiers many exciting opportunities. Learn about some of the best hikes in this fascinating UNESCO World Heritage site, including Rosengarten, Civetta, Sassolungo, Pralongià, Gardenaccia, Schlern, Odle/Geissler, and more. After a day in Bozen/Bolzano, where we meet Ötzi, “the iceman,” it’s into the mountains every day for sunshine (most of the time), wildflowers, refugios, and views, and back down into four valleys, where the ancient language of Ladin predominates for food and refreshing evenings.

 

April 25th: Crossroads of the Silk Road- Uzbekistan

Four cities sat at junctures of the old Silk Road connecting Europe and Asia and they prospered because of it. Each was a regional capital and one was capital of an empire. In addition to being prosperous and powerful, they were also centers of learning and culture. These four cities (Tashkent, Samarkand, Bukhara, and Khiva) with their stunning architecture and World Heritage Sites are the subject of Richard Lion’s talk based on his visit last Spring. Although all four are in Uzbekistan today it has only been around for 1/2 percent of their existence and largely irrelevant to their history.

Travel Tip of the Month!

STREET FOOD

The following tips are from Lonely Planet’s “Best Travel Tips”. This book is available in our store and is filled covered to cover with travel tips that will only aid your experience and adventure.

Traveling to a new destination allows you to not only get a taste scenery, but also the amazing local foods. The big question however is when and where.

1.      Time of the day: Like any business, markets open early to get the day rolling. So you may choose to skip your regular breakfast plans and head straight to the market, plus this is when the food is the most fresh.

2.      The Source: Using common sense, eat the foods that are local to the destination, if a location is known for a certain type of food, you should not have to worry about its source, if it’s a stretch from where it may have been picked or plucked, hesitation may be in your best interest.

 

3.      Shop Around: Just like shopping at home, you know where to shop for certain foods. Don’t buy everything in one place and don’t choose the first place that you happen upon, ask around and explore.

4.      Trust your nose and not your eyes: Markets are focused on selling their best products, such as produce. Though some stand may look more aesthetically pleasing, doesn’t necessarily mean that they are the best quality.

 

5.      Get in line: If you notice a food stand or vendor with a long line, it’s probably for a good reason, trust the crowds.

 

Lastly, TRY EVERYTHING, don’t be shy to new foods!
