I don’t know how about you, but travelling for me is about having a good time. It doesn’t have to be exactly the same kind of formula all the time, but one ingredient is a must: you have to travel together with people who make you smile.
A trip to Sirmione, at lake Garda, was one of my yearly trip with girls. This time we also had a baby joining us and as it turned out: in Italy that opens many more doors than you could ever expect. It was a time to enjoy the good weather, spectacular surroundings, good food and each other. No culture, no monuments, no running from one place to another before the closing time. Just enjoying the moment.
Some tips before you go
- if you have a possibility to be mobile, choose it. Sirmione is a great place to see, but not necessarily the place where to stay for a long time
- be aware that it is a very very very touristic place and you will see not only loads of German tourists in their 70ies (with their “good” intentions to explain what is the good way to live your life) but also groups of youngsters and Italians from all over the country
- prices in the village are quite high. e.g. water in the restaurant will cost the same as in the only small shop nearby.
- with that Italian breakfast in the hotels, I still wonder how that nation stays slim. Their coffee is best of the best though!
