Palm trees in Switzerland, Coronos in Italy and other travel stories
Just a short post as I am at an internet terminal in a hotel right now. :) Having a really great time here on our Switzerland/Italy trip. We spent the first 2 nights in Lugano/Switzerland. Lugano is a really pretty town right by a lake. We went up to the top of Monte San Salvadore by cablecar where you have breathtaking views of the lake and the region. In the afternoon we went on a 2 hour cruise around the lake where we also had absolutely gorgeous views. Lugano is really pretty and nothing like you would normally picture Switzerland - including palm trees. :)
The next day we took a scenic train from Switzerland to Italy and then continued on to our hotel in Baveno, Italy near the Laggo Maggiore. This is also an absolutely gorgeous reason also. The lakefront has a beach and a really neat beach cafe where I had some coronas the other evening. :)
Today we spent the day touring the 3 Borromean islands that are located in the Laggio Maggiore. Absolutely gorgeous islands with super pretty parks and nice blooming flowers and plants. Two of the islands also have palaces on them. The 3rd has a ton of great restaurants - we had lunch there and I had really yummy pasta. God, I love Italy. :) Tomorrow it's back to Austria already, 2 more days on Austria and Wed it's back to the US. Time flies.
