In Italy we have had a massive week with design meetings, which I have not had the chance to blog about yet, so I thought I would just post a few more Bellagio pictures from the other day, when I went swimming.
I love swimming and will do it in freezing water. The last time I swam outside was on a recent trip to Tasmania, around Freycinet Peninsula and the Bay of Fires. The water was 13 degrees C. That takes effort.
This time, in Lake Como, the water was about 23 degrees celcius. Sounds glorious. But on this day, it was not without its own effort.
Here’s the trip to get to the Lido, from Bellagio.
As usual, the Italians know how to do things. A great little cafe and bar on the edge of the water provides seating, shade, drinks and food. Plenty of time to gear up for those pebbles!
