Finally, I am writing this late post now from previous travels last July and August as I have been so busy the past few months and so I can only participate in some quick and easy Photo Challenges, see previous post on this LINK and this LINK and so on, if you care to know more then you will make me happy if you all like it.
LOCARNO, is located in South Switzerland under the canton / region of TICINO just like LUGANO (see the LINK 1 & LINK 2 previous post to learn more)… It is obvious that from the name itself it sounds Italian and yes, they speak Italian on that side of the border. It is very near Italy as I make way traveling to MILAN as per this MLINK1 & MLINK2 I hope you would like those posts too!
Since we have a very long family vacation so it is a must that we rent a house to cater big families and that means 3 families in one house! Yep, must be a big house indeed. But unfortunately, in Locarno, it is harder to book in advance for 3 families and we only get good for 2 families. Just us and the parents in law, cheers! 😉
And now without any further ado… here are some beautiful photos we took while there.
You can see another angle of this church at the edge of the rock on my other post thru this LINK. Feel free to check on it while you are here. Click the photos to enlarge it.
If you are in Locarno you better visit ASCONA. It is a small town under Locarno. Some of you will probably have seen this place if you are fond of watching movies in cinema and thinking like “I wanna go there!” just like me haha!
Look how nice the place is for tourist though I am not sure if the residents will like it since it may be too crowded for them but good for the economy! A long time ago, my parents-in-law said that people who visit here MUST wear formal clothing for dining or just strolling beside the bay view or browsing some antique and art shops in every alley. Good thing they have changed it now to accommodate the modern generation as you well know nowadays, some tourist are just happy to stroll around in short shorts etc. But never fear…I am always ready for that as I know Switzerland can be unpredictable.
I hope you have enjoyed some photos and thanks for your time reading and/ or browsing! Please be with me for the next post (when I have the time) about Zurich as we finished traveling from the South to go to North of Switzerland and around the City of Zurich. You can see most of our travels from the Category: Travel and Leisure OR browse my other categories for older posts. Come travel with me slowly but surely 🙂 Thanks heaps! Ciao!
