ScouseLeeM on Tour
27th May 2008 - 29th May 2008
Lake Maggiore and Zermatt/Matterhorn

..a business trip to Milan gave me an excuse to take a short trip to the shores of Lake Maggiore for a few days - touring around the Borromee Islands including the palaces and gardens, heading up the cable car in Stresa for a view over the 7 local lakes, and a trip across the border via the Simplon pass and Brig, to see the Swiss Alps.

This last trip took in the spectacular Matterhorn mountain, spending a day in extortionately expensive Zermatt - eating fondue and rosti before heading up to the viewing hill for an uninterrupted view of 12 mountains, all over 4000 metres tall.

Returned to Zermatt to stuff my face with pizza and coconut gelato, before flying home from Milan - just in time for another mundane week in the office...hey ho. Oh, and picked up a case of the trots after a dodgy sausage pizza - ah, the memories
