    There’s only 1 Lake Como. Plus Zeppelins, plus F-18’s!

    Yes absolutely. I will be going back. It may not be for some time, but it will happen.

    Thoughtful email received just now from the Villa Serbelloni, where this trip began: As some of you already know, the Grand Hotel Villa Serbelloni is located in Lombardy, the Italian region most affected by the spread of Coronavirus. At a moment such as this, we don't want to take your time...

    Bonkers via Honkers - to Austria
