This year, for different reasons, my only Zeddrivetherapy was the trip to Tuscany for the annual meeting of the Italian club Z3mendi, which adopted me 2 years ago, as the only foreigner (for the moment!). I have to tell you that I was suffering a little bit , to not share the passion for Zed with another group (Jim understand this feeling perfectly!). Despite the fact that in my country are about 110 registered Z3, there is no cohesion to create a group for a trip; maybe not the same reasons to be a Z3 owner, or not the same age, and so on.......The nearest club was in Italy and as we share the same latin blood and the Italian language is familiar to me , I found the best way to visit different parts of the beautiful and sunny Italy and meet very pleasant and warm people, that immediately became good friends. Usually , when I want to go from Bucuresti to Italy I take the road to Drobeta Turnu Severin, cross the border to Serbija and drive along the Danube river for about 100 km through outstanding road in the rock of the mountain and small tunnels. Than I continue to Belgrad, cross the border to Croatia, then Slovenja and Italy! But this year due to heavy rains and landslides, the road was blocked for several places and the risk for new disasters too high so we took the road through Hungary and Slovenija. The first night we stopped in Postojna (SLO) and the next morning we visited the Postonjska Jama (the biggest cave in Slovenija; about 21 km long and 5km for the public circuit). I heard alot about this cave in the paste and it's really an amazing place to see. The tour takes about 2 hours, 10 degrees C inside, the ticket about 25 EUR, but worth the effort and the money! This year I went from the italian border in the Dolomiti mountains, from Gorizia (IT) to Vigo di Fassa, through Passo di Mauria, Cortina d'Ampezzo, Pocol, Passo Giau and Passo Fedaia. The weather was unexpectedly good (I think Somebody Up there loves me!) and the road almost empty! We slept over night in Vigo di Fassa and the next day we continued the trip through Trento ( a very Austrian place in style and names, despite it's in Italy!) on the motorway to Marina di Pietrasanta, on the Tuscany's sea shore, to offer my wife a well deserved rest on the fine sand beach and an acceptable 23 degrees C of the sea water. And because of the season's closing it's almost empty everywhere, which I appreciate alot!
