A little time away....Pt 1....

Hello my friends...it really has been too long since we blogged....but I am back now with a few highlights from the Bt HQ summer holiday...

Miss Sybil and I left the Uk by Eurotunnel ....heading for France.....Miss Sybil is #sybilontour and is a small border terrier raising awareness for Huntington's Disease for our pal @jaq421

...after a long day's drive we arrived in the old town of Nancy for an evening stop over....we always insisted on some comfort...

...all very arty....*sigh*

...Nancy was very beautiful and interesting...well worth a short visit to see the old square and the historic buildings....

.....and home to a good hotel brekkie....very important for working terriers.....

....we were taking TT's bike with us for some cycling in the mountains....more of that later....


....the next day we drove to Switzerland...to the old town of Bellinzona.....it is very famous for its castles...there are three of them...

....Miss Sybil and I paid a visit to each one...this is the biggest one...

....you can see the whole town from up on the battlements.....

....a home fit for a Knight....BOL....

....but our eventual destination was the beautiful Hotel Rivalago in Sulzano on the banks of Lago d'Iseo in northern Italy....we had a room with a view....

...we visited the local market....they had cheese!

...we took a trip on a ferry across the lake for dinner.....

....but most of the time we just relaxed by the water....

...well, wouldn't you?....

...a spot of sight-seeing in Brescia....more castles as you can see....

Do you have this one in a small?...

....but really there were precious few reasons to leave the lake....unless you were the typist...who spent his days cycling in the hills near the lake and getting lost and hungry...pfffft...

.....he's out there somewhere.....tune in soon for part 2 to see if we ever see him again....
