Bella IsolaBella

What a paradise!! This island in the middle of Lake Maggiore is such a garden of Eden. Many go to Lake Como (because of Clooney and Hollywood) but WOW these beautiful islands are amazing and nearby to our current base in Pavia.  

Everything is  in bloom, including the peacocks. AND, if you are related to the Borromeo family (who have owned this area forover 400 years) you can still live there.

We had such a beautiful day, photos do not to it justice!

Hurrah For Hollywood

Tuesday, October 13th, 2009


Back on the road;  this time to Hollywood, California. Steve was covering a convention for Pfizer …. Our hotel was right under the Hollywood sign, and right down the street from Grauman’s Chinese Theater and all the footprints of the stars. That seemed to be the headquarters for all things weird, and tours and Wax Museaum etc.  I did the typical “tourist” thing and took a tour of the stars homes, Madam Taussauds Wax Museum, and just people watching. Gail and Carl joined us….that’s her accosting Spiderman. Fun and Funky!
