The countdown is on...

So, in 21 days I'll be airborne (NOT WITH AIR FRANCE), and landing in Munich via Dubai (which means maga-shopping spree). And from there I will be spending week of skiing at the Mondi-Holiday Bellevue resort in Austria and another week of ice cold fun at the Casa Carezza resort in North Italy.

I need to brush up on my Italian because it sure seems that my English or German knowledge won’t bring me too far. Here is an extract from their website explaining some of the facilities at the Casa Carezza:

"The 17 flats (some provided with car garage) are all furnished and equipped with TV color, direct phone line, safe cassette. Bath and bed linens are available behind a payment. The Residence is also supplied of sauna, solarium UVA, tavern, ski deposit zone." 

Have a look at this webcam...it looks like a typical small mountain town with the stunning view of the Dolomites. These mountain towns all look very similar but have their own individual flare. I have not been to this one yet, so look out for some feedback from the snowy (hopefully) Dolomite region.
