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!

Mi Amica, Carol

What’s better than being in Italy?  Being in Italy with a fun friend who speaks fluent Italian!!! Now all the folk in Montalcino know more of my heart cauz she can translate for me!  I can tell them how special they are to me and what a pleasure it is to be in their country again.

Carol visits Italy twice a year (6-8 weeks each time). We met at an Italian class in SD’s Little Italy, but she lives in RB and plays a mean game of golf . She leaves hubby at home cauz he’s been there, done that.  But Italy gives her life such dimension (and it’s her heritage), that it’s like coming home to her.  She has spent time with us in Tuscany and now we are on a 5 hour train to enjoy Pavia and Milano with her.  God is so good to bring us together!
