Before we got our dog I wasn’t much of a hiker. To be honest, I had never given a vacation in the mountains, purely for the reasons of going hiking much thought. But when I started researching regions for going hiking that weren’t too hot in September, offered scenic landscapes, were dog friendly and that were a manageable drive away from Dresden, the Dolomites kept popping up. And I must say, the Dolomites did not disappoint. Already on our first hike on the first day we were in awe by the views and the nature surrounding us.
