007 slept here. Yes, from my favorite Roger Moore film "For Your Eyes Only" this is the hotel where he holds off the passions of a teenage Olympic skater.
Cortina D'Ampezzo was the focal point of most of that movie. The ski jump is just across the street. The flower shop and square are just down the road (although it's a sporting goods store now) and the hockey rink where Bond scores several goals with bad guys as pucks.
A great town for Bond fans and a fantastic place to see the rugged Dolomites. Although it was raining for me the whole experience. Alas, we can't always count on the weather!
To my favorite Bond IGs @jamesbondlifestyle @jamesbondbr @thebondexperience @legallybond @bondsuits Have you stayed here? And do you have a bucket list Bond location you haven't visited?
First time skiing in the Italian alps! Probably the last powder trip to the alps this season. Its starting with a jackpot in Gressoney valley together with @unnerum_frei. We seem to end up skiing powder together every time we hit the alps. And yeah - its still snowing ❄❄ #gressoney#gressoneylatrinite#monterosa#monterosaski
Always be prepared for a change in plans! I was going to take a mountain pass to get to Cortina D'Ampezzo (site of James Bond's "For Your Eyes Only"), but as I climbed in elevation, I watched the temperature dip below freezing and i decided to double back and add 5 hours to my drive!
On the way back, I took a wrong turn and found this curious wood carving just above a village in the Dolomites. It was so green and beautiful and this carving so intriguing, I had to stop and photograph it.
The clouds never lifted during the day, so I still haven't officially experienced the Dolomites. A good reason to come back!
Looking back to flying videos from Staffal. Nice to experience flying thermic ridges, and weak conditions.. Quite different from the thermals in Australia with @matty_lawler_ventures. Next week @olletingstam @nilstingstam @jenniieb and I go to Åre for more flying. Stay tuned #paragliding#alps#italianalps#åre#skiandfly
