Ahhh Italy.

Italy, what a place. Beautiful scenery, crazy drivers, great food, and the old and new world all mixed together. Unlike North America where so many of our homes arrived with the invention of cars and paved roads, Italy evolved to fit roads and cars into the tightest of places; winding, crossing and running through hundreds of years of establishment. Internet is more expensive here as well so I will let pictures tell most of the story with this post.

Back on the road again from Toblach-Dobbiaco, Italy on our way to the final venue of the 2011 Tour de Ski - Val di Fiemme, Italy.
The original Morotto Skis factory in the valley just outside of Cortina, Italy where the 36 km point-to-point race started - stage 6.
A rare glimpse of sunshine on a surrounding mountain peak in Val di Fiemme.
Team Canada bus in Val di Fiemme. Not a bad way to travel....especially when you back it up with two guys in the top 7 overall, and 4 podiums for Kershaw already in the first 7 stages.
Team Canada bus beside the Norwegian and Swedish mobile waxing trucks.
View over the home stretch. Above is the town of Tesoro where we are staying just to the left of the tall church steeple. Lighting was bad so I made it black and white.
Our constant cheerleader and wax boss Wally the Wombat with his girlfriend Lucinda.
Working hard or hardly working......Finn checking out Callum's skate fleet for tomorrow's final stage hill climb. Callum and I skied down the course yesterday. It is a full on alpine run. Should be an epic day. Finn and I will be taking the Gondola to the top and walking part way down to cheer. I like this wax tech life!
