We popped down to Cernobbio for a couple of nights.

It takes five hours - zipping through Switzerland (and maybe a nick of Austria, I'm not sure) - but the drive from Munich to Como over the Alps is fantastic, the fast autobahns of Deutschland tapering into narrower roads, tunnels and underpasses, zigzagging across bridges, picture postcard scenery at every turn, waterfalls, chalets, fast flowing streams, fields of wildflowers, summer grasses, slashes of red geraniums under windows, and the increasing brilliance of the blue sky of northern Italy and Lake Como, close by Milan, the jewel they (rightly) claim of the Italian lake district.

BMW beats elephants.
