Some of the fine folks I met at Worlds and I took off on a mini Italian adventure...we popped up to Lake Como and boated around some of the most beautiful country I've seen. Swam and lazed around there for two days and then made our way south to the Italian Riviera for Portofino and Cinque Terre. Absolutely gorgeous! We did the hike to all 5 towns, not as leisurely as expected but that made it even more of an adventure. Beautiful cliff sides overlooking the Mediterranean and tons of vineyards and little hillside farms. Camped and made good use of the tent for another couple of nights, ate some amazing food and loved every second.
