Lake Como, Italy

Lake ComoLake Como

Well, yes, living in Europe does have its advantages, such as popping down to Italy for a long weekend.  Lake Como entered American consciousness by being featured in several films.  Also, George Clooney owns a villa there (unfortunately, he was not in residence during our visit, otherwise, I am sure he would have invited us over to dinner.)  This is usually a summer tourist destination, and it is probably even more beautiful during the warmer months, but there is something to be said for avoiding the crowds.  Plus, our favorite reasons for visiting Italy are food and drink – things which know no season.  We wandered through the lakeside towns of Como and Bellagio and spent a day in Milan.  The water in the Lake is surprising crystal clear and (unsurprisingly) very cold.  Colin rolled up his pant legs and waded in – “we can’t come all this way and not get in the Lake!”  He sure did come out quickly though!  All in all, it was a lovely and relaxing three day holiday.
