We landed in Zurich at 10:00 am Swiss time....that translates to 4:00 am in the US. I was so surprised to see all of the colorful leaves on the hillside. Guess I never thought about fall in Europe.
Our second flight took us to Milan,Italy where we boarded a bus for the hour journey to Lake Como. We saw a large campground on the way with tents and small campers all parked close together. It seemed a little out of place until we went a little further and saw a dirt bike race track with moguls and hills manicured for the dozens of bikers. We had passed it before I could pull the camera out. Lesson learned. KEEP the camera handy.
Our hotel is right on the lake. We can look across and see the village of Bellagio. There is a ferry to cross the lake. That is on our to do list.
Time to get a hot bath and a little shut eye. We dine at 7. :).

... unreal, sun is fierce and not a breath of wind. Afternoons on the balcony are the order of the day, listening to all the birds shouting at each other and arguing over bread dropped on the floor at the cafe by the lake.
Only downside is having to wait until 7 till the restaurants open. Not easy for two gluttons like us. Had a rubbish meal first night too which is enough to put us in a bad mood for about a week. Italy almost done. ...
... the same question. Well with partners in crime... Why not?? We climbed the fence and absolutely enjoyed the path that we had entirely to ourselves. There was a bit of a landslide that we had to traverse, but definitely nothing life threatening. We didn't even encounter any trail police! We spent a lot of time down on the rocks enjoying the spray from the ocean. The fall weather was enticing, and the plethora of color in the trees was breathtaking. I very ...
... across the mountains. The temperature was about 6°C and it was raining steadily. The wind chill was a factor. Like Hannibal and the elephants we stoically continued on over the di Mauria pass hoping it would clear on the western side. It didn’t. As dusk set in we stopped in a roadside picnic area at 1200m, made a hasty hotpot and retreated to the heated ‘room’. The rain continued through the night but kindly let up ...
On the bus to Lagura Switzerland, free time for coffee and shopping in the markets. Weather is very cold here. We took the bus to the cable car up the mountain called Monte Tamaro. Beautiful views on the way up of the valley below, snow on the alps here. We had a set lunch menu and a walk around at the top, threw ...
... which is a small town on our side of the peninsula/lake. We finally found the start of the trail we were hunting for (directions of course were, "Find the church...then face the bus stop... now look left..." Typical Italians.
It was drizzling lightly, but we were in a very covered forest for the first half of the hike, going literally straight up hill! At some points I was using my hands to climb up. We didn't see any other people for ...
