Love at first sight. That is the only way to explain what happened when we first laid our eyes on South Tyrol several years ago.
It was our first adventure to Italy, and like most Americans we had our hearts set on exploring some of Italy’s most popular destinations such as Venice and Lake Como. After a few days in Venice and Verona, we decided to rent a car and meander through what we then knew only as the Italian Alps…and then it happened: we discovered our home away from home — South Tyrol. Travel would never be the same again.
Our bucket list of countries to visit became meaningless clutter. Hopping around and crossing off as many destinations as possible suddenly seemed pointless. For us, the only choice was South Tyrol. Our passion became devouring and savoring all the area has to offer.
Like all good travelers, we immediately snapped a couple of selfies to capture the moment. Instagram would never be the same again.
