Stresa


I just got back from Stresa, on Lago Maggiore, where I spent the weekend with my grandparents. The mountains and lake are gorgeous - but I'll let the pictures speak for themselves:

views from our hotel balcony



















(brief glimpse of the sun)















sunset from the balcony











Isola Bella, where the following pictures of the 17th century Borromee palaces and gardens were taken

My Swiss misadventures have been limited to airports, unfortunately, though I'm thinking of making a cisalpine train trip. hope Locarno was wonderful, thanks for the encouragement.
