I've kept our plans about this trip to myself for more than a year and now I can tell you all about it. Chris and I have never been to Europe so this was a BIG deal for us and we had the best time traveling through five European Alpine countries in 20 days. Don't worry I won't give you a day by day description but I am going to share some of the highlights. I want to preserve the memories for myself and let you see a little travelogue as well.
The first four days of our trip we stayed here in Cernobbio, Italy on the shores of Lake Como.
A charming old world hotel with all the modern touches and wonderful lake views. I was instantly drawn into the setting right outside our hotel front door.
Strolling along the waterfront it was just as I had imagined it. The adventure was just beginning as we boarded a water taxi for a ride down the lake to the town of Como itself. These water taxis run all day criss crossing the lake and drop you off to which ever village you wish.
On the way to Como I waved to George and Amal for you when we passed their gorgeous villa.
This massive stainless steel sculpture greets visitors in the harbor as you arrive at Como. Quite a contrast to the old world vibe of the town.
Como definitely caters to an upscale clientele and it was fun to see how the other half lives. Very stylish.
A quitlter can find hand work anywhere. Isn't this coat great?
