Before I set off on a hike, I had a short walk through Varenna along the shore of Lake Como in Italy and noticed many cafes along a lakeside walkway. So after the hike up to the castle above Varenna and to the train station to check the schedule for my train trip back to Milan, all I could think of was finding one of those cafes, and sitting down for a rest and a nice cold beer! There were many to choose from and why I chose this one over another is anyone’s guess. You don’t necessarily want to pick a totally empty place because you wonder ‘what is wrong with this place that there is no one here?!’ and you don’t want to pick a totally packed place when you have a backpack, camera, and hiking poles to deal with. So like the three bears, this one seemed ‘just right’. I chose a table farther back from the waterfront, which ended up being just perfect since it allowed me to include one of cafe tables in the photo! As you can tell, it was late day and it happened to be my last day in Italy. It was the ideal time to just sit and think over the wonderful adventures in the past week and to dream of a return trip for more adventures!
