Venice to Riva

Beautiful

We left Venice for the airport to collect a hire car - a Lancia thia is 1.2 litre and more gutless than the Spanish Seat I had in Spain.

We planned a drive on roads without tolls, which took about 30% longer, but was very scenic.

Unfortunately, a wrong turn got us onto a toll road that cost 2 Euro 40 to get off, and later, we got on another one inadvertantly, but we stayed on it to arrive at Riva del Garda at 2.30.

There we met Igor and Jenny...Igor is part of the skate club.

Riva is where the mountains meet the lake and is spectatular. Igor was born here. When his mother was born (1916), Riva was part of Austria.

After a coffee, Jennny took us for a lovely walk.
