Jun 19, 2006 - Lake Garda - Riva del Garda

Hooray - I am at Lake Garda and have caught up with Austin. Won't go into the details about how I actually got here a day late (I was totally oblivious to the date stuff up) and he was getting really worried. Anyway, there is champagne cooling in the room and tons of fruit when I arrive ! The hotel is excellent, has great views of the terraced valley, fields amd olive terraces and is set back from the main street. I love the pool and the gazebo which we make our own. Riva has a real holiday atmosphere and is definitely a place I am coming...
