After an outstanding buffet style breakfast, we left the city of Bolzano behind and went out to explore the surrounding wine country and visited the warmest lake in the Italian Alps known as the Kalter See, which is surrounded by vineyards and apple orchards covered by black netting to protect the fragile fruit from hail storms. While my friends went for a ride on a paddle-boat, I explored the lake and surrounding grape plantations. The sun was out and the beautiful countryside was breathtaking, different from any setting I had ever seen before. I was in rural Italy and it was an amazing spectacle of nature's bounty!
