THINGS TO DO AT LAKE COMO & BELLAGIO

The travel year 2020 went by a lot different than expected, we had planned many exotic trips to new countries, but by the time we were able to take our summer vacation Italy seemed to be one of the only easy options. We therefore decided to visit an old-time favorite on our way to Tuscany: the Bellagio at the iconic Lake Como. We previously visited this town in 2016 and luckily it hadn’t changed much and was still as lovely as we experienced before. We did learn from our mistake in 2016 and booked a better accommodation. In this blogpost you will find our recommendations for a trip to Lake Como.

UPDATED COLMAR & ALSACE GUIDE

In 2020 I got to revisit Colmar while Hielke and I were on our way to Italy, so Hielke could see this town which I had enjoyed so much the year before when I visited it with my mother and sister for a long weekend. Colmar is the perfect holiday destination because of the many activities you can do: wine tasting, cycling in a beautiful surrounding, twirling with colorful houses in the background and enjoying all the flowers that are displayed in the flower season. It is the perfect destination for a long weekend or a pit stop on your way to another location.

LAGO DI BRAIES: ANOTHER PLACE RUINED BY INSTAGRAM?

No doubt that you have seen pictures of Lago di Braies (Pragser Wildsee) on Instagram. The most quintessential picture of Lago di Braies is the picture of the little dock surrounded by rowing boats on a snow reflecting lake. With this blog I want to set your expectations low, so you will not have the disappointing experience that we had. Lago di Braies is a gorgeous lake, but it definitely isn’t the quaint experience I had in mind and Instagram seems to be a great cause of that.
