A walk back to Varenna - Lake Como, Italy

I love to balance out my travel locations. Little out of the way villages and towns can be a great retreat from the hustle and bustle of the city. As the infamous travel guru Rick Steves puts it ....... "a vacation from your vacation".....and Lake Como was just that. There are countless towns along the lake that are connected to each other via passenger and car ferries. As a train traveler to this area, this becomes the best way to explore once there. Oh yeah, and since George Clooney never got around to giving me a personal tour of the area like he promised me, (he has a villa near the town of Como in the southern tip) I guess I'll have to make it back there someday!

On a completely different side note, at which point do you stop watering your neglected brown and withered plants and just call them dead? My daughter tells me its a hopeless cause.....

Beautiful images. I can't wait to be in that part of the world.
