We visited the beautiful town of Lazise, only about 15 minutes away from our campsite. With it’s impressive medieval gate and castle, it’s a lovely place to wander for a while.
We spent the day at the campsite and near the lake. There were some markets to browse as well. The girls and their cousins had fun on a rental peddleboat: In the evening, we walked about 1km to the Medieval Times restaurant: Their promo video: It was fairly […]
In fair Verona, where we lay our scene…a day trip, and an evening visit to Gardaland.
At first we had planned to take a boat from Lazise to Sirmione but as I’d been feeling unwell, we thought the car would offer us more flexibility. We didn’t even make it very close to the centre when we were redirected by traffic police. Soon, we realised […]
Today we stayed at the Campground, Camping Lido. The girls love the pool. I read a book. Really, really hot. Must hit 40 in the daytime in the tent. We have a small fan but it doesn’t do much. Looked into some day trips (though didn’t end up […]

We had a relaxed morning at the lodge and then walked for a short distance to the Reuttener Seilbahnen. Our accommodation gave us a 50% discount card for the return journey making it around 30 euros for a family. What a delight at the top to hear the […]
Almost 15 years ago, my husband proposed to me on a walking path overlooking Neuschwanstein Castle. Today, we took our children there! We didn’t quite make the exact spot – the girls were hot and tired, and it was very crowded with a queue to get over the […]
We left our apartment this morning and before heading for Austria, went to check out another nearby castle, Schloss Lichtenstein. I had actually never heard of it, but it’s lovely! In fact people may confuse it for the more famous Neuschwanstein, which we are visiting tomorrow. Arriving quite […]
