WEEKLY WINNERS - Garda lake


More participants here at Sarcastic Mom Weekly winners

For the moment I am in Torbole at the lake of Garda. Torbole is on the northern side of the lake. It was a very little village when I first came here in 1969 with maybe 2 hotels and 2 campings. Then somebody discovered that this place is the very best for windsurfing.

Today it is full of surfers and bikers and a lot of Guesthouses, hotels and campings. Fortunately the landscape hasn't changed, they couldn't built a lot of new hotels, because of the mountains. There is simply no space.

And that's my world for 10 days :
