We are exhausted. We have been awake for more than 36 hours… But, we are here!!!
We landed in Milan at 8 am (which because of the time change is 2 am back home). We have settled on our moving home away from home. This bus will serve as our main mode of transportation until we head back to the airport in 10 days in Rome.
We did not get to stop in Milan as we had hoped. Honestly after traveling for more than 30 hours, I just want to eat some lunch and take a nap.
As we drove through the region we passed wineries at the base of the foothills of the Alps. Amazing how Italy can be exactly as you imagined while being so different from what you expect.
We arrived at Sirmione on Lake Garda. After enjoying a delicious lunch of pizza and pasta, we walked through the double wall of the old, fortified port city. The streets are all cobblestone and they become narrower and narrower as we get further and further in.
