The last bike ride for a while, though 3 of the places we are staying offers bikes (Lake Garda, Ravenna and Florence). As some of these places have cobblestones, I don't know if we will use the bikes.
More planning and last minute procurements. Yesterday a trip to the Apple Store to get the necessary connections for our cameras to the iPad as the ones we use for the computers won't work. The place was packed solid but quickly a guy popped up answering questions and ringing our sale so no line to stand in.
Chimney cakes: a new one for me. These are advertised as "Hungarian, Transylvanian' pastry cooked over a tube and filled with sweet or savory fillings. The savory ones are coated with garlic and cheese and our sweet one was covered with nutella and walnuts. I had a Groupon for this restaurant in the mall I never go to since they closed the only place I got clothes. But the Apple store is there too and we had a tasty lunch. From their website:

So many little things left undone and here I sit at the computer. For many of the places we are going, we have been using Rick Steves as our bible except for Lake Garda, which he does not cover. Bologna sits conveniently on the train line between Bolzano (Castelrotto) and Florence. Rick does not recommend Bologna, which some call the food capital of the country claiming it is crowded and boring. Do we listen to Rick? I have heard others gush about the place, their favorite.
Lots of things to mull over. My presence in the blogsphere will be erratic.
