Since work had me traveling to places near and far since May, the Hubby and I missed out on celebrating our birthdays, and our anniversary together…so, what’s a girl to do when work is wrapped up in October?
Why, yes – go on “Spring Break”!
Who cares if it is October, as long as Spring Break is celebrated in Italy, right?
Located less than an hour from the Malpensa airport by train, the trip could not have been easier.
Checking into our hotel, La Luna nel Porto, we were surprised and delighted to be upgraded to a room with a small kitchen, living room, and super large balcony overlooking the lake.
Does “Spring Break” get any better than this? The weather was perfect – sunny and mild both days we were there.
Just look at the views from our balcony – yes, that’s Switzerland over there across the lake. (You can take a train to Switzerland, then cruise back to Stresa by boat. It’s an all day affair, so that’s a “definite” for us to do next time.)
Since the lake region is a major Summer tourist draw, we felt as if it was ours for the entire time, since most tourists had gone home for the season. Boy, they sure don’t know what they missed by not being there in October!
Now, please join us for breakfast – just a little something we picked up at the local market. Hope you enjoy breakfast and the view from the privacy of our patio.
