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. :).

... was a lot of fun to talk to my tutor and his daughter. I fell asleep and didn't wake up until 10 on thursday. So I just got around, read my book, and stefania and I walked to the grandparents house again for lunch. It was delicious. After that Stefania, her friend, her boyfriend, and I all rode a bus and two subways into the centre of Milan. It was absolutely incredible. It is filled with antique architecture and tons of shops. We came home late so ...
In a nutshell- Cousin Corrado took us all over Lake Como, including to the castle where they filmed Casino Royale, and George Clooney's place! He took us up the mountain side. We always thought that we were at the top, but then we went higher! We went for a walk around the area. We went down to S. Segmente for an expresso and then up into the hills. We also went to Lugano Lido where Corrado works in Switzerland for a fun day of swimming. The ...
... is in a brilliant location about 2 minutes walk from the water. We drop the bags and head out. It's beautiful with another picture perfect day and the lake is still and lovely. The boys find a playground and some grass to run around and get rid of the extra energy and Paul tries his hand at fancy photography, some of which looks pretty good. With tonight being our last night in Italy pizza and pasta are on the menu with Paul keen ...
... 50pm and that gave us all afternoon and evening to explore. We did a little shopping and walked around this quaint little village. This is where Amy enjoyed her birthday gelato and I also had one too. One can never have too many gelatos in Italy. We stopped off in a little wine/meat/cheese bar that Dana and I had been too and loved. It was still the same and we had a little break there - shared a flight of local wines and some meats and cheeses. No one does it quite like Italy. ...
... 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 ...
