We had left Austria shortly after Christmas 2018 and celebrated the New Year in Javea, our Spanish home town. We travelled through Spain and Portugal before we returned to Italy and South Tyrol for some hiking. We visited the Abenteuer Allrad in Bad Kissingen in Germany and the Globetrotter Rodeo in Austria. We went on a short trip to Slovakia and another hiking week in Slovenia. In September our tour with Renate Leonhards from Seabridge started. It took us through Hungary, Romania and Bulgaria to Greece. We then explored first the Peloponnese and then the island of Crete. We flew home for Christmas from Athens and celebrated New Year in Alexandropoulis close to the border to Turkey.
