Our last morning in Zurich was spent searching out some Swiss chocolate and buying ourselves mini macarons and sub-standard coffee for our train ride to ...
The train ride was uneventful with scenery that was beautiful but impossible to capture. Como was very hot when we arrived and it unfortunately took us a little longer to walk from the train station to the funicular station than expected which made for a slightly unpleasant start to our stay. That said, it didn't take us long to check in and then turn around and come straight back down to wander the town.

Our one full day was spent taking a boat ride on Lake Como to Bellagio ...
|apparently the one and only photo taken from the boat that made it through the mass cull|
|first bite of real Italian pizza - he'll kill me for putting this photo in ...|
|fair's fair - and I did crop myself out of the pizza photo|
|so many ...|
|... quaint little ...|
Once again, moving away from the crowds proved to be very rewarding
|not exactly sure where this fits in but it's in the Lake Como area somewhere ...|
Apparently not satisfied with all the walking we'd already done, The Sparky insisted on climbing to the top of the hill when we returned from Bellagio
|not a brilliant photo but it gives an idea of how high we were|
|the lighthouse we came in search of|
|this smog/fog was our constant companion through the trip|
|We took the funicular many,|
|many times in our two days here.|
|beautiful church building near where we stayed|
