MY WORLD - Northern Italy
more participants here
Even in Northern Italy you should never be in a hurry. We arrived on saturday and on sunday morning I was looking for internet connection and hurrah ! I found a cheap connection just in the next door camping ! Instead of 5 € for an hour he only asked 1 €. Good news. So armed with my baby computer I crossed the little path from our flat to the camping and found the reception open but with a lady at the counter who didn't know anything about a computer. It was as if I had asked for a space shuttle to rent.
Finally after half an hour her son showed up just to tell me that I had to come back in the afternoon, because there was no paper in the printer to print out my code. Apparently it's a special thing and he had to go to the next big town to buy it. In the afternoon, he had forgotten to buy the paper so I came back in the evening and now I am finally here this morning ! The weather is so and so, it's hot then cold then cloudy then blue sky. Definitively not the heat of Morocco, I even had to buy a cardigan.
So for the moment my world is here in northern Italy at the Garda Lake. As I have been here the last three years I wrote already about this beautiful lake in my Countries and Cities blog. I know this part of Italy very well because I have been here 23 times ! Mr. Gattino is from here.
Internet connection can be very moody because of the high mountains around the lake, so I am very sorry if I can't vist a lot of blogs. My time is also limited.
Here are a few new pictures I took since we arrived.
During our trip we really had bad weather and it often rained. But as soon as we arrived at the border between Austria and Italy, we had to pleasure to see this :
weather at the entrance of the Italian highway just after leaving Austria
and wonderful sunshine in Italy just behind the border ! We had left Germany at 7°C in the morning and suddenly had 30°C in Italyin the afternoon !
My home for 10 days
