Day Five

Campingplatz Pe da Munt to Caravan Park Sexten

Crossing the border, it was amazing how quickly the architecture changed. You'd be able to tell pretty quickly even if there wasn't a sign showing you had crossed the border. If it wasn't the architecture that gave it away, it'd certainly be the drivers! 

We weaved our way through fields upon fields of juicy looking apples. The roads were a little busier here but it didn't slow down progress at all. We were at the foot of the Stelvio Pass and there were loads of incredible cars in the area heading towards the stunning road made famous by the Top Gear lot (the last lot anyway)

We took a bit of a detour to visit The Dolomites. You can drive almost to the top and it really highlighted to us that the more powerful engine in the California really isn't necessary unless you're towing. We really were surrounded by snow now but the roads were clear. It was very busy when we got to the top but we found a parking space, had some lunch and went for a walk. We even had a snowball fight. God job we packed shorts!

Before we knew it we were arriving at Caravan Park Sexten. As we drove through the neighbouring town we spotted a lovely looking pizzeria. That was dinner sorted. We quickly checked in and then drove the 3 or 4 miles down the road and had the best pizzas you can imagine. 

Caravan Park Sexten must be one of the most luxurious caravan sites in the world. Surrounded by huge, behemoth motorhomes we settled down for the night in our humble California.
