A long drive today using the motorways to take us along the coast before turning north towards Milan and then east to Lake Garda. The coastal and mountain section is quite spectacular with a series of tunnels and viaducts for many miles – we counted 102 tunnels !
At Lake Garda we took a lakeside stroll to watch the sunset before grabbing a take away pizza from one of the site’s three excellent restaurants – yum.

!!!!!! GARDALAND !!!!!!
Yet another theme park - just open for the season. Seemed quite busy but virtually no ride queues that’s what I call a theme park !
Did the three big roller coasters - one brand new for 2011 season – fantastic.
A great day had by all !

Included in our Gardaland package was entry to the Garda Sealife centre which turned out to be an excellent visit. Amongst the usual aquarium sights there was a special exhibition dedicated to jellyfish – quite interesting Watson. We also attended the seahorse presentation and feeding session and learnt a lot about their habitats, mating and feeding habits.

Schoolwork, domestics and prep for our onward journey. Drinks with Bob and Hazel French at their big American rig – thanks guys. Bob’s a useful chap to know – picked up some useful info on mobile internet and dongle unlocking which has since been put to good use in Greece.
