Have you ever wanted to hop on a flight and go somewhere for dinner like Paris for example? I have though I know it is a totally unrealistic dream. I am not a spring chicken anymore, so the idea of sitting on a plane for hours just to turn around and go home does not sound like fun anymore. Let's not begin to talk about jet lag. When our hotel in Zurich turned out to be a lemon, my husband went on the Internet to find us another hotel room;however, all the hotels were either booked or we couldn't afford them. We came to the conclusion that we should move on to Italy. Lake Como is just over the Italy-Swiss border and would bring us 4 hours closer to our next destination. I have to say if you are only going to be somewhere overnight Lake Como isn't to shabby of a place to go hang out! Once we checked into our hotel we headed over to the Lake where we ate dinner and the children played at the playground along the water front. The children had so much fun!!!!!! We left in the morning to head on to Cinque Terre. See this post for the pictures.
