    Hirschen hotel- Mals -Italy

    May 18, 2017 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 59 °F

    We are in Italy but you would not guess it from the people as only 3% speak Italian. German is the language here.
    Tonight we tried a different way of finding a hotel. We just turn up in the town and look. The first we found was too expensive so Mandy went for a walk while I fiddled with the car and she found this place.
    The village is charming, surrounded by mountains. I don't know how high we are but it got a lot warmer as we came down the passes. I insisted on a pizza to celebrate arriving in Italy. We ate in a pizzeria across the road from the hotel.
    It was cool up on the mountain in the car so we put I jumpers and later jackets but so far we have only once had the hood of the car up once for ten minutes. We have been very lucky. That might change tomorrow as rain is forecast.
    Mandy tool several pictures as we traveled. I will post a few.

    Technical update

    May 18, 2017 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 59 °F

    We did quite a distance today 205 miles including two passes. Starting in Germany then passing through Austria and ending the day in Italy.
    I bought a couple of litres of 20/50 oil as I've used about a litre and a spray to clean the windscreen and also remove the strains where the petrol had dribbled down the outside of the tank. I now fill it to about four inches from the top.
    Fuel consumption today has worked out at 29.5 mpg which is quite good for a MGTC considering the terrain.

    We found a nice hotel in a place called Mals and they offered me the use of the underground car park. I parked the car and noticed one of the rear tyres has a slow puncture so tomorrow morning I will change it for the spare and take the wheel to a local tyre place to fix the puncture . I could do it myself as I have everything I need but I will leave that option for a time when I have no other.

    A day off from travelling

    May 19, 2017 in Italy ⋅ 🌧 54 °F

    The weather forecast for today said thunder and lightning so that together with me needing to fix the puncture was enough to decide to stay in this lovely town. As it turned out I could have walked to the tyre repair place it was so close. The tube was not repairable so it was a good job I brought a spare tube. We have four good wheels on the car and a good spare wheel.
    The rain did not arrive until after 4pm so we could have continued but I'm glad we didn't as it gave me time to check over the car undisturbed in the underground car park while Mandy did a painting of the mountain view from the window then we went for a walk to find the five towers of the town and also find a place to eat tonight. The photo of the monastery was taken from across the valley.
    We have been having a large breakfast and today's was the nicest so far then not much for lunch which means we are hungry by 7pm.

    Mille Miglia

    May 19, 2017 in Italy ⋅ ☁️ 55 °F

    It looks like we will be following hot on the heals of the famous car event. This year there are 902 cars entered from 127 different makes, all between 1927 and 1957. We will follow the leg heading south. They go to Rome we by pass it.
    This might explain why I had two huge modern Ferraris slow down from around 150 mph in Germany on an empty road before the Alps they sat in the fast lane next to me for a few seconds one in front and one behind then they waved and took off accelerating as fast as they could, the sound was incredible. I think they were on the way to watch the Mille Miglia.Read more
