Day 1 Lake Como – Well it has been a long day travelling with 3 different modes of transport (taxi, train, ferry) but I have arrived at the breath taking Lake Como in the north of Italy, Bellagio to be precise. Approaching Lake Como via the train from Milan to Verenna I could see the snow capped Austrian Alps in the distance and I knew I was in for something special. This place reminds me a lot of another one of my favourite places in the world, Queenstown in New Zealand. Only it’s like a hybrid of Queenstown and Milford Sound rolled into one. Throw in fancy facades, quaint little walk only lane ways and lighting similar to Paris street lamps. Stunning is the word for here and you can see why it is the playground of the rich and famous. George Clooney, Richard Branson, Madonna, Elton John, Adrian Alford (ok the last guy.. not so rich and famous).
I can’t wait to explore this place tomorrow. Well, I think I’ll rough it here for the next 4 days.
