We left Palm Desert, picked up Fiona and Steve and were off to LAX for our different flights to Milano.
I'm at the curb at KLM with our 2 checked bags and 2 large carry-ons (I never take anything but snacks and a pillow and book on the plane, but on our last trip, KLM lost my luggage both coming and going! This time, I will be dressed well no matter what happens!
We had a great flight to Amsterdam, and an easy connection to Milan, getting in early. We had time to get our bags and the rental car, and meet Fiona and Steve's late flight from Frankfort.
From there, we drove to lake Como. It was late, so we stopped in Lecco for a dinner of spaghetti carbonara. From there, it was only another 30 minutes until we were checked in to the charming Hotel Du Lac in Varenna. It was almost midnight, so we settled into our lovely balcony room, and slept well.
From the lake, our hotel is the tan building on the water, next to the yellow one.
On this closer shot, you can see our balcony. It is the far left of three, a floor above what looks like the breakfast room.
A lovely spot to sit and look at the lake!
