16th August: Lautersee and Ferchensee

I was so tired after yesterday’s exertions that I slept until 9 o'clock. The weather was lovely so we decided to go for a walk, rather than moving on to Garmisch-Partenkirchen, our next stopover. However, I insisted that it had to be a relatively easy walk. We took the chair lift up the mountains on... Continue Reading →

14th August: Karwendelbahn cable car

It’s still quite cool today. I’m actually enjoying it. The weather was perfect for walking; I haven’t had to smother myself in sun protection lotion; after my shower I have stayed clean and non sweaty; and I am enjoying wearing my jeans for the first time since we left home 🙂 Anyway, I digress… Today,...

In fact we almost had it to ourselves for the first couple of hours. John took his fishing rod as... Continue Reading →

11th August: Little to report!

After breakfast we did a bit of housework… Washing pots and clothes, sweeping etc… And after lunch it was too hot to do anything so... Continue Reading →

We set off and walked along the prom and that was it, the walk ended! We found the perfect spot for sunbathing and... Continue Reading →

9th August: Cannobio

Today we had a nice lie in and then drove an hour up the lake to Cannobio. We have found a nice, quiet little campsite, which is more expensive than a stopover site but has more facilities. We were originally just thinking of staying for one night but the campsite owner has been really helpful... Continue Reading →

8th August: Lago Maggiore Express

The Lago Maggiore Express offers an unforgettable journey by train and ship, with travel the length of the lake, admiring the islands, castles and villages, and a trip on the scenic Centovalli narrow gauge railway through the wildest and most romantic landscape in the area. That’s what the brochure says. And apparently this is what... Continue Reading →
