The day started with us having a buffet breakfast at the Hotel. Any breakfast that incorporates cake is a good one in my book. Fortunately for my waist line we are self catering and from now on its a bowl of cereal, needless to say I had one of everything making the most of the opportunity!
After a welcome meeting with the holiday rep, we hopped on the shuttle bus and went down to Garda.
Truly a beautiful setting
After a brief family meeting it was decided (2 to 1!) to walk along the lake to Bardolino. The walk was lovely, so unlike Devon, no stiles, no cows, no mud and no hills, yes holidays are good!
We cheated and took the ferry back to Garda, where we ate lunch by the lake. Stunning location but did feel the staff were not really very keen on having our business!
Self catering means I don’t get away from food shopping whilst on holiday but it’s always far more interesting shopping in foreign supermarkets, the food far more colourful, look at the pasta!
Far less appetising was the Donkey sausage!
Enough supplies were purchased to ensure I don’t have cake for breakfast and it was back to the hotel for us and more importantly the Olympic sized swimming pool. Cold but that’s just what we needed.
omigosh, cake for breakfast? my kinda holiday… no watches, no diet, lots of beer! *lol*
If that walk was all along the edge like that I’m booking my next holiday there, looks AMAZING!!! oh enjoy enjoy!!!!
