After the 4 lovely days in London I had to fly back to Switzerland, because my brother was driving there from The Netherlands and we'd be teaming up for a short trip to Italy! We spent the night on the floor in the empty home, and the next morning we set off for Italy. We had a short break on Lake Como, just across the border.
And then we continued to Bergamo, a town north east of Milan. A couple of friends had advised that this would be a beautiful place to stay. And well, what can I say, they were as right as right can be. Bergamo is an amazing town with this beautiful fortified old-town filled with amazing churches, little streets, towers, architecture and basically a lot of history.
After Bergamo we also visited Milano, where we were greeted by a horde of Glasgow Celtics football supporters. Apparently their team was playing AC Milan that evening. Not exactly how we had imagined it.
But all in all, Milan is a nice city, but not nearly as picturesque as Bergamo. After the 3rd and last night we drove back to Winterthur, where I went to return the keys to the rental agent and spent my last night in Switzerland at now ex-colleague Rémy's place while my brother Thomas continued his journey northwards back to The Netherlands.
