Saturday, 23rd August

This morning we left Geneva and headed out early to cross the Swiss/French/Italian border. To do this, you basically drive through kilometres of tunnels UNDER the giant mountains of the Alps. We stopped to check out some of the mountains and get some photos before crossing through. We also got some great shots looking back at the Alps from Italy!

After driving UNDER magnificent mountains, we found ourselves – only a couple of hours later – in the Italian city of Milan. It was our first experience in Italy and the fashion city did not disappoint!

Milan was spectacular and not really what we had expected, but we spent the whole day there enjoying the atmosphere and beautiful weather. Speaking of weather – tomorrow will be about enjoying the sun and water in Lake Como!

    It is! I was there for a Celtic Champions League match years ago and we all hung out drinking steins at a bar on the corner of it. Some of the Celtic fans climbed up inside it and sang the football songs out onto the square where all the other fans were. It looks spectacular at night too xx
