Como itself is a small, laidback town. Simple and relaxing. Just sit on a terrace with a beer and let the sun warm your face. A stroll around the harbour puts you in full view of the lake, which is a great sight. The water rests enclosed in small mountains (or high hills), and if you're coming from Milan, the openness, the space, is very relaxing to your soul.
We took a little train up to the top of the nearest hill, and long lost memories of travels in the Alps with my parents came rushing in. I rediscovered a feeling that I had almost forgotten. A feeling of freedom and awe. I don't think my travelbuddy noticed any of this in me. At the top I was very glad indeed to get a view of Switzerland, the magical place that had awakened these feelings. I tried to capture it on a photograph, but my imagination made it more grand than I could capture.
Also, the view on Como was very nice. The land was a bit misty farther away, but you could still see the flowing Italian fields all the way up to Turin. We took some icecream and headed back to the train. Milan was waiting and I was almost sorry.
