Como - lakes and mountains

A whole lotta lake


Lake Como
Gianluca’s apartment (well council flat) had been in the family for generations….. We loved the quirkiness of this place(well I did! And it was cheap… Lake Como is VERY expensive). Lake Como is beautiful and we stayed in Cernobbio. First night we headed to a beer and board games bar… Phil was in his element. Day 2 Ran 10km then walked up a mountain and had a picnic at the top! Gorgeous. Day 3 Football at Como Stadium… Como won which meant they had won the league… which meant they were very happy… so all the fans stormed the pitch and all the players took their clothes off! Must be an Italian thing. Day 4 Walked up a bigger mountain to a church at the top…. WOW WOW WOW.. and saw the snow on the mountains and amazing views of the lake… and got SUNBURNT because it was so hot! Day 5 Conquered my fears and went up the funicular because from there you can see the ALPS… wow! Worth it… plus yummy meal..
