Here I am sat overlooking Lake Como,Italy. A wonderful location and “very Italy”!
We travelled overland to Dover UK, across the English Channel and through France. Here we overnighted in a lovely hotel. We then continued into Switzerland and on to Italy. Long journey but worth it to get a feel of the countries and arrive in this great location.
Today we travelled all around Lake Como, visiting towns and villages en route. The architecture is wonderful! All the buildings are those Italian faded colours and very shabby chic. we saw Villa Oleandra-Laglio where George Clooney resides. We called for tea but he was out. Shame!
I couldn’t find any charity shops and fabric shops were closed! The high end couture shops were open so we gazed in admiration but didn’t touch. Hey ho! When I win the lottery…..Still I’ve got Como market to look forward to later in the week and Como is the birthplace of silk manufacturing so watch this space! Does anyone know how to sew silk?
