We woke up to raindrops on the window and thought – what a bummer! We had a day trip planned to go to Como (Italy) and Lugano (Switzerland)
We still went ahead in hope that the rain would eventually stop. We crossed the borders at Chiasso and the rain did stop – thankfully.
We walked around the medieval township of Como, though the winding streets. And visited the Duomo of Como This is the side of the Duomo Tourists were taking photos of all things – including a water tap.We walked back to the Piazza just in time and to the parking place before the rain came again.As we got into the car to drive back to Switzerland the skies opened and the rain came down hard! Phew! That was close!
By the time we arrived back in Lugano – 20 minutes later, there was no more rain. In fact the sun even came out for many photo ops!Mummy and I walked along the lakeside till we reached the park at the end of the walk.Before we turned back into the town centre to check out the shops.
When, whoa! What’s that? Did a giant Cinderella leave a shoe?It sure was scary for me. We checked out many shops and Mummy was looking for a gelateria or somewhere nice to sit and have a coffee when we stumbled upon a pet shop. And that was how the day ended – for me!
It wasn’t just two lakes, two towns, two countries – it was also two experiences for me – all in one day!
