Just a few days before I left for Manila, my folks flew in and joined us in Como. It was good that all our travel plans coincided and we were able to be together as a complete family again, even just for a weekend. We decided to take a couple of short trips outside of Como. We visited the quaint little town of Bellagio, which is about 2.5 hours away by boat. We passed by huge Italian villas and joked around, acting like house hunting bajillionaires! Feeling big time even for just a day. "Magkano yang villa na yan??! What 5 million euros only!? Gosh, C-H-E-A-P lang pala!" Mwahahaha! We even saw Richard Branson's ginormous villa..and also the villa they used in Casino Royale! We failed to spot George Clooney's villa though..well, rumor has it..he might be leaving Como soon because of his recent break up with Elisabetta. Haha, The Buzz Italian edition yan!:)
I'm now back in Manila, after 26 hours in transit..hopping from cabs, trains, and several planes..not to mention endless layovers in between! It was a quick but meaningful sojourn to Europe, a big blessing indeed :) Just enough to scratch my travel bug itch for the year..and now, it's back to reality again!
