... Italian pizza for lunch whilst we waited for the platform to be displayed. Wendy continued her extreme diet - no solids. We boarded and sat opposite each other in quite comfortable seats for about an hour and a half as we both tried not to go to sleep in case we missed our station. John succeeded in staying awake. We alit at Genova station, were met by a man with a sign saying "Pearce" and were then transported in a Mercedes "S" to Monterosso. Our driver told us that he used to ...

Time at leisure on Lake Como

... beef (that tasted so good) and that Wendy had for tea was not so good after all. It seems that the food poisoning was what was really on the menu. A quick chat with a doctor by phone and John took a taxi into Como to a pharmacy to get the medication suggested. All this was about 11:30pm after he had been asleep for a while. Boy did he earn lots and lots of Brownie points. Needless to say, not much sleep was had during the rest of the ...

Plan B Again

As much as I loved my.dinner last night, it didn't love me. It could have been the Procesco I drank pre-dinner, or the wine with dinner, or the post dinner grappa, espresso or the night cap Frangelico! By the time my tummy settled I made it out to the square by the lake where the weekly market was held. The fruits, produce, cheeses and meats -all local, were all so tempting to buy. I didn't time myself very well and called for a taxi about 30 minutes before ...

A day on Lake Como

... if we want it tomorrow, then we went for a coffee at the bar next door. When we were chatting he mentioned that he meets lots of people and ones like us that are just like showing his mum and dad around! Now hold on a minute! The guide was 39years old so maybe John was old enough but ........ . Anyway a great day indeed despite the rain. Now time to rest (although the power is off in the hotel due to maintenance and there's no internet!) and plan for dinner and our rest day ...

Plan B.

... Each corner and alcove was unique with tombs of cardinals past, tapestries, marble alters, statues, gold inlayed reliefs, stained glass windows and tributes to saints that I never heard of. Being the lapsed Catholic that I claim to be it's humbling to see these works of art and the depth of century's old devotion and faith. And as the rain let up I headed out to the other areas of worship, the higher ...

    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. :).
