... You can see in the picture how cute our little coffee's were. We found an open table that had two chairs and was an old wine barrel. I have been known to exaggerate some...but I am being 100% honest when I say that this was the BEST coffee either of us had ever had in our lives! Gas Station coffee??

Thin streets and steep stairs flanked by pastel yellows and reds house small art galleries, local wines and fine silks. From here we ...
... Switzerland behind the tour guide joked that he knew we were in Italy because of the rusting guard rails...something the Swiss would never let happen!
After checking into our hotel we had a free afternoon so four of us decided to explore some of the little villages dotted on Lake Como...it was wonderful exploring little alleyways and it was exactly how I thought it would be! We took the ferry and got off at Torno where we had ...
