A boat trip to Limone

Limone sul gardaTorbole Lago di GardaMatt’s parents are visiting us this week so yesterday we all took a bus and then a boat down to Limone on Lake Garda.

  1. I’ve been to the northern part of Lake Garda. My great grandparents live just north of Garda in a small village called Cavedine. We rented a boat and sailed and swam in the clear aqua waters of Garda. I wish I could go back one day. Perhaps…Lord willing. I’d love to see and hear more. Ciao!

    • Lovely! Something that I haven’t yet done, but would like to, is to rent one of those funny little pedal boats with a slide, so you can go swimming out on the lake. I think that would be so fun!
