Drove out the lake to Stresa, where we took the boat to Isola della Madre, one of the islands in Lago Maggiore that have the palaces and gardens of the Borromeo family, a well connected bunch over several centuries. A couple of them were archbishops of Milan in the 1500s and 1600s. The gardens are quite amazing, cover most of the island. The trip did not work out well for Rhonda, who was seized by motion sickness about as soon as she was on the boat, and pretty unable to do anything but nap under a tree while the rest of us saw the sights. The boat back was not pleasant for her, but no discernible alternative.
6 AM


Really long travel day yesterday for not going very far. We left Brać by boat around 7:30, arrived at Split around 9. Very crowded, way more than the week before. Some milling around, a gelato at the very fine Luka gelato stand, then taxi at 11 to the airport, which was utter chaos. Planes were all late, people sitting on the stairs and the floor. Hung out with our friend Norma until her plane left, 2 hours late, then ours was only one hour behind, but no real announcement, just saw folks lining up. We arrived in Rome, where we had to pick up and re-check luggage, then a theoretical 4 hour layover which stretched to 6, with two gate changes, and no one at the gate until after the last announced departure time was well past. Not impressed with the re- branded Meridiana, now Air Italy. Anyway, finally landed in Milan where our nice friend Matt picked us up at about 12:15 this morning, and Sheryl was waiting up for us with prosecco and antipasto, finally to bed at 2.
