You can find hiking boots alongside high heels and evening gowns hanging side by side dashing dirndls. Next to them, lederhosen – hers, of course.
As mountain girls, we are as multifaceted as the mountains. And because life and growing up at these steep heights wasn’t always easy, we learnt from an early age to put up with things and to grow from them. Nowadays, we know that you’d best not play with footballs up here (they’ll roll down the hill) and that you’d better think twice about whether you’ve really got everything you need before you leave the house. It wasn’t always easy; believe us, our sturdy calves might tell you a thing or two about it.
We have power. We know how to lend a hand when needed, and we also know how to wield a hammer.
And because we’re walking on the fine line of the cliché tightrope: Yes, we can even park in reverse – which, by the way, is often an advantage on the narrow mountain roads here in South Tyrol.
Self-reliance is the name of our game. But please don’t get us wrong, although we enjoy the responsibility of girl power, we have absolutely nothing against men. Without our dear men, we might not always be in such a good mood; after all, we have learnt a thing or two from them. 😊
