WHB# 220 - Sweet Pumpkin cubes

This week we are hosted by Chris from Mele Cotte thank you Chris for hosting! :)

more information about the WHB here:

who's hosting
Kalyn created this great event and
Haalo is now helping her keeping it together :)

one of my favorite task with my guiding-job is looking for new paths to accompagnion my turists. first I study my maps, then I discuss with Roberto or Andrea (my bosses)
but even if they don't agree or are not enthusiastic I usually go and try anyway :)

like today, Roberto couldn't come (problems with his knee), Andrea had else to do,
nor Simoo(away skiing) or Monica (doing Sunday housekeeping)
soooo, I went alone!

beautiful trekking way! I'm so happy I did it..
and I'll certanly bring my Germans around
this summer.
I'm sure they will love it too! :))

here is some viewsalonthe way...
