Italia: Lake Garda

We spent a beautiful 3 nights and 2 days at a hotel overlooking Lake Garda.  the receptionist told us, it must have been 100 years since they’d had a summer like this – gray and cloudy and rainy.  Despite the gray, we enjoyed the view, the fresh air, the calm, and just relaxing, strolling exploring.

 

A late start to the first day after checkign in late night after the opera.  We ate our lunch/tea at a little restaurant overlooking the lake.  Delicious Canellonis and a lentil Italian soup that tasted just like indian DAL.

We then drove down the hills to the town of Sirmoine.  I slept for over an hour while stuck in traffic.  A cute cosy little town albeit overcrowded with tourists.

On the way back, we decided to pull off the main road to eat dinner, and unexpectedy found ourselves in a cosy little town, bustling with tourists eating, drinking, strolling late at night.
