Planes, trains, automobiles and…..ferries

To get around (or across) Lake Como there were two options – Driving. Hmmm. Or catching the Ferry.

On Lake Como I found the batelli the easiest way to get from one side of the lake to the other.

The local ferries are a quick and efficient way to travel between the villages and towns dotted around the lake.

I loved being out on the water and was able to admire some of the smaller villages, whilst relaxing and gazing in awe at the spectacular mountains all around me!

Residents going to and from work, cyclists and tourists all line up at the many ferry wharfs around the lake to board the ferries every day.

There are slow ferries, rapido ferries and ferries that look like they are from days gone by 🙂

You can even use the traghetti (car ferry) to transport your car between one side of the lake and the other!

We never had to wait too long for a ferry, although none of the services we caught coordinated with the timetable 🙂

They were definitely running on Italian time……

Beautiful Sydney – The Spit to Manly Walk

I know I live in an absolutely beautiful city. But, I had forgotten about all those ‘undiscovered’ places that just make it so much more special.

I recently completed the ‘Spit to Manly’ walk (Manly Scenic walkway). It is a 9km bushwalking track that takes about 3 to 4 hours to walk.

It really is one of the best walks I’ve ever done. It takes in hidden harbour beaches, luxury homes, rain forests and some of the best views Sydney has to offer.

If you are a budding photographer, then this walk is for you. I took LOTS of photos along the way and ABSOLUTELY LOVED the breathtaking 270 degree views of the harbour from Dobroyd Head.

So, what are you waiting for? Get walking….
