Searching for George Clooney Part 3

Third and last day to search for Clooney.
And I/we took it to the next level and rented a boat to cruise around Lago di Como.

The sun was shining, the water was calm and it wasn’t too hot.
Perfect day to spend on the lake admiring the beautiful villas lining the lake and scattered in the surrounding hills.
The gardens are flawless giving the villas enough privacy from nosey people like me but still enough openness to enjoy the stunning views.

Bliss.

Sadly I have to report that I did not sight Clooney.
He might have been in hiding.
Or just not in Como altogether.
Either way it was a fantastic trip.

Getting home was A LOT more complicated than we had imagined/planned.
Our train was delayed for 65 min in Como until it got cancelled.
Luckily the train to Chiasso was delayed too so we hopped onto that. From there we took the train to Lugano and then from Lugano to ZΓΌrich.
What was meant to be a 3 hour journey turned into a 7 hour journey.

We picnicked, had a drink and played yahtzee and before we knew it we were in ZΓΌrich.
