Italia Trip 10.16-10.20.2010

We returned from a lovely trip to northern Italy yesterday. We stayed near Lake Como in Tremezzo in an apartment that allowed us to take Didger with. The trip had many adventures from hiking, to heat, to a tour bus, and new foods. We will blog different aspects of the trip over the next couple days.  The views were breath taking and virtually impossible to capture it all, but we tried. The cuisine was outstanding. The roads were insanely narrow and steep at times. Driving in Italy is not for the faint hearted. We traveled through the Gotthard tunnel on 3.5 hour journey to Italy. It is a 17 KM tunnel in southern Switzerland. When coming back to Switzerland, it was sunny and 15′ C on the Italian side and snowing and 5.5′ C on the Swiss side of the mountain. Amazing the difference in temperature and weather on one side of the mountain to the other. It reminds of the song…. the bear went over the mountain to see what he could see…

So…. lets get started : the currency of Italy. It is the Euro.
