Nicky's Birthday Surprise - Italy, August 2011 - 27-08-2011
I arranged a surprise trip for Nicky's birthday. She had no idea where we were going until I handed her an envelope with all the details once we got to Gatwick Airport.
We flew to Milan and then took a shuttle bus to the city centre, then a train along the side of Lake Como to the town of Varenna where we took a ferry to our final destination, Bellagio. We spent 4 fabulous days in and around Bellagio, it's a magical place. Our stay included a boat trip to a gorgeous lake side villa. A speedboat ride on Nicky's birthday, lots of walking and exploring, including an encounter with a snake, lots of great food and wine, an awesome local blues band and a swim in Lake Como. Perfect :)
