It was lovely having Kaye stay with me for a few days. I picked her up at the Nice train station on the Monday evening. She had been on a cycling holiday with her brother and sisters and so was already in Europe. The train from Brussels was late. Surprise, surprise!!! Unfortunately I had to work the next two days but Kaye was happy resting her foot. She had been told she had tendonitis and it was quite swollen and giving her quite a bit of pain. (It now seems it ...

... and have our first possible sighting of George. It is in a little taverna where we have appertiva (an Italian tasting platter) for lunch and his photo is on the wall as well as a wine bottle with a picture of his house on it. We should have come here yesterday.

The lake cruise is on a beautiful wooden speed boat that seats 14 people. We cruise up the lake looking at all the small villages and all the large magnificent villa's with their manicured gardens. ...

... leaving and we are on the wrong side of the tracks, next train in 90 minutes. Can you call a taxi - yes, but it is a busy time in Bellamo and it will be a 90 minute wait (there is only one taxi in Bellamo). Can we catch a ferry or hire a boat, maybe but it is a 500 metre walk to the ferry station. So armed with a map and a couple of directions we set off and soon find the only ferry for the day which leaves in 5 minutes, what great timing. The ...

... he can’t help with the trains, but says he can give me a great book to read on the journey.

We finally find our train, and rattle off to Varenna without much further ado, well if you don’t count that little incident with the conductor and our non-validated tickets. At last we’re here.
