    Gavirate to Bergamo via Como

    July 20, 2017 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 29 °C

    After an early morning swim in Lago di Varese, at Gavirate, we headed into Como for a quick look. Nice city and the lakefront was very like Lago Maggiore. After a forgettable lunch opposite the cathedral, the heat was building, so we decided it was time to push on to Bergamo.
    On the way, our Italian sim kicked in and we had Internet again, which was very fortunate because we were able to identify a Bunnings-like hardware store on the outskirts of Bergamo, where Eric was able to buy a much needed gas fitting for the comping car.
    With his usual professionalism, Eric drove us all the way in to our hostel in the centre of Bergamo and sad farewells were said. Thanks for your wonderful hospitality guys and good luck. Travel safely to Sweden and Australia.
    After a bit of a clean up, we headed around the block for a very pleasant meal of pasta, scallopini al limone and the chefs dessert selection (cafe gourmand, in french).
