Leisurely start to today. Breakfast at 8 to 9:30 then we both did some emails and Facebook catch ups in the lounge until about 10:30. Then we asked about the bus to town, and they thought we looked fit enough for the walk instead. Which turned out to be great advice. The path was great, interesting, not on the road, and heaps shorter and more …
... Riarena in Cugnasco, Switzerland. Lovely site, has free wi-fi everywhere and the toilets/showers are spotless. Only problem is that we are parked under a bloody Oak tree which is dropping acorns everywhere and they make a hell of a noise when they hit the van! Parked next to two other British couples. Haven't seen many Brits on our travels - thought there would be more. Tomorrow off to Ottenbach. Night ...
... in the lake is obviously a relatively recent addition. Decided to go over to the pool area for drinks, where tour captain Clare set about organising our excursion plans for Thursday - we're taking a scenic train to St Moritz for lunch! On the way back to the car, we spotted a beautician out front of her premises, so stopped in there for Clare to have a manicure. She had a reasonable level of English, but it did take a bit of explaining on both sides to work out they only ...
... hot chocolate ever at this cafe called Bar Rossi (where I wrote my last entry).
Today we are in Bergamo, a city that has been around since 49BC. BC stands for before christ and AD means for “anno Domini,” which is Latin for “in the year of our Lord.”
We will explore the oldest part of the city today!!!..........(Hope I don't get hit by a car!)
Hope you're surviving
... tramway to the village of Busate, overlooking Como. It was very steep walking up to a lighthouse(?) in the village and having had very little breakfast again I was ravenous so I decided on a sit down resteurant meal. I came to a little cafe just before 1:00 which was all set up but deserted. I found someone in the kitchen who said they opened in 7 minutes but I could sit down if I wanted to. Not having seen anything else ...
How has this hotel rated in the past?
Reminds me of a 70's family hotel. Which is great by the way. Mainly I am talking about the set breakfast and dinner hours, your room number on your table, which is the same tale every meal. Like a Flag Inn back home in Australia.
The room was clean and functional, although very small. Not enough room to open 2 suit cases.
The pool is great though, there is air on and tv and bar fridge in the room.
And the staff where always helpful and pleasant.
Getting to and from town you have three choices: taxi (€15), bus (~€2) or walk. The walking path is great actually, and obviously easier to walk down to Menaggio than back up. Takes less than 30 minutes down.
