When the sun won’t shine for you…

Locarno, Switzerland

… then go and find it!

On Saturday the forecast for St. Gallen was grim so rather than stay around and risk cabin fever, we jumped in the car and headed down to sunny Locarno in southern Switzerland.

As soon as we had parked the car, we went and bought a return boat trip to Brissago. We had a little time to kill and there was a Gelateria right by the ticket office. So of course we just had to get us some gelato.

By the time we got to Brissago, it was lunch time.

We had about 20 minutes to stroll around Brissago before catching the boat back to Locarno.

And after a quick walk around Locarno, it was time for dinner. Did I mention we only travelled three hours to the south of Switzerland to eat? I can think of worse ways to spend a day…

Here’s my Osso Buco with Risotto…

By the time dinner was finished, our last ice cream was but a distant memory, so to reacquaint ourselves we finished the day with one last ice cream, sitting on some steps by the water, soaking up the last of the afternoon sun!

And Chocolate chip!

Munchkin #2: Mummy, can we come here again to eat ice cream?
Me: Most definitely!
