    After my 5 day trip to Norway (http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=356568) I went on a 5 day trip down to Austria.
    (Sweden -> Germany -> Austria -> Italy -> Austria -> Germany -> Sweden).

    Not much to say. Boat to Kiel. Autobahn to Austria. Stayed there for couple of days. And then the Autobahn up again.

    Grossglockner. One of my Zega panniers tasted the road, or the other way (almost have a hole in it). But after I got a place to sleep for the night and left the panniers I went up there again. (6 passes over Grossglocker Hoch Alpen Strase in 2 days.

    The ferry between Gothenburg - Kiel / Kiel - Gothenburg is 14 hours.

    Departs 19:00 and arrives 09:00 the next morning both ways.
    More expensive than taking the bike down to Kiel, but a cold beer at the sun deck and comfy bed for the night is worth it :freaky(it's my vaccation after all)

    2 more pics.

    Thanks for the photos, Grossglockner is a lot different without all the snow. Next time I'll go a bit later in the year.

    Its the SS 51 "Alemagna" in the stretch between Toblach/Dobbiaco to Cortina, going south.

    The church in the last pict should be Valle di Cadore ...
    Its possible to reach the summit of the mount that you see in back through a dirt track...
