3 Gelati… we’re rolling Brickie out the door.
Lake Como was a nice rest stop – I stayed here for 2 nights in a little place right near the water.
I made another friend – an English boy named Gary who is a physio trying to make his way over to Australia. Not before 9 months of travel!
We went for a run around the lake on the first evening – the hills ABSOLUTELY killed me but we cruised for the rest. Gary mentioned he was surprised I could keep up with all 6 foot 3 of him and when I said I was going to stop he exclaimed “Oh thank god” hehe – I must be maintaining some of my fitness!
After our run we rewarded ourselves with some gelati – I had chocolate and some rum flavour.
The best I have ever eaten… absolute foodgasm!
We bought a bottle of wine and watched the sunset while looking over the lake…
The following day we headed to Menaggio – a sleepy little town further up the lake. I kept my eye out for my boyfriend George Clooney, didn’t see him but that’s ok I’ll see him at our wedding.
We sampled some more gelati in Menaggio, I had nutella and pistachio this time. I forgot to take a photo!
The walk along the water was beautiful and the day was picture perfect.
That afternoon I headed back to Como and sat and had a “spritz” basically a glass of prosecco with aperol – perfect on a hot summers day. I am missing them already!
Breakfast was included in my accommodation, so naturally, I made the most of it!
I also found a patisserie which was basically a whole in the wall where a lovely little Italian lady served gorgeous cakes and coffee… could this get any more stereotypical Italian – a coffee with scooters in the background?!
I HAD to have more gelati before I left – this time, I branched out and had cherry chocolate and creme brulee… yep, another foodgasm ensued.
A perfect ending to a perfect stop over…
Oh and I found some street art!
…Now onto the Nice nightlife!
