Lake Maggiore



I have just returned from a short break at Lake Maggiore, the second largest of the Italian Lakes. I stayed in Stresa on the western shore of the lake, an idyllic setting with easy access to the Borromean islands. The Swiss border was only a few miles away and I was able to make a couple of journeys in to Switzerland, the most memorable one being to Zermatt to see the Matterhorn.

During the next few weeks I will be adding some of my notes and images from  my travels.

About crosbyman66

My aim is to create a photo diary of my walks and my travels. I have two main hobbies, walking and photography and these complement each other. I am a senior citizen, what used to be called an old age pensioner, but I don't feel old. Since retirement I have had more time to pursue my hobbies and the opportunity to travel more. My philosophy now is - Do what you can, while you can. My other interests are fine wines and keeping fit. These may not complement each other but keep me happy.
