Lago di Garda - Wrapping up our first trip to Italy (finally)

Lake Garda, and if you tilt your head right and squint a little...
Having visited Venice and explored Verona, the last day of our Italian trip in September '10 was spent at Lago di Garda (Lake Garda), which lies about 20 km to the east-north-east of Verona.  It's an amazing site from the air, shaped like the head, neck and body of an emu or a moa perhaps, and, like most of Italy, was at least as pretty from the ground.  Our trip also marked my first (and to date only) swim since I left Aotearoa, so I have very fond memories of the place.

My oh my, it's been a while....

...more than three months, which is rather disgraceful given this was my one pet project for our time in Germany. Worse is that there are several drafts sitting unpublished, just waiting for photos or a little tidying, but without a time machine there's little can be done now.
