We left Lake Como, and drove to Lake Iseo (September 2018). The journey was far quicker than we thought, even with a stop at a garden centre and a pharmacy My cold from hell was now at its worse, we had tried a supermarket, but unlike here in the UK, there are no pharmacies in supermarkets. Luckily we found one near to the end of our journey, they were very helpful and I came away with a bag full of stuff to make me better……I needed to feel better after I worked out how much it was costing me to get better. Wow those medicines were far, far more than anything I would have paid at home…..but I was not at home and the headache tablets I had with me were all gone, so I made sure I took everything they told me to, so I would get better……… it helped a little, which was better than nothing. Anyway back to the trip, as we were too early to book into the hotel, we went for a picnic and a drive around one side of the lake. I have added some photos of the garden centre we visited, as I love see the different plants that are for sale, also there were some very cute animals, wild and tame. Next post…… another wonderful church.
Some views from the car window on our way to Paratico, a town which is situated on the shores of Lake Iseo.
A few photos of the garden centre, we were hoping that they had a cafe, so we could get some refreshments, but no such luck, I think they are missing a trick there. Gardens centres in the UK have cafes and resturants, they are now a large part of their revenue. The rest of the photos are of the drive along the lakeside, but there are a lot of road tunnels and one half of the trip was one long, long tunnel. We did escape the tunnel at one point, and drove down through little villages, which was vey nice, but some of those roads are pretty narrow, no wonder they have small cars 🙂
