April 16th

Ready to play?

Since everyone’s staying home, let’s pretend we’re off on an International trip.  My books are set in places I’ve visited, and I’m sharing some of my photos this month.

Identify the location of the picture below.  Remember to register your answer by clicking “Leave a comment” at the top of this page and then write your reply (I’ll approve comments at the end of each day and reveal the locale in the following blog). 

Correct answer receives a point.  If you’re not certain, go ahead and guess! I’ll be posting a different photo, along with a hint, every day this month.  Whoever has the most points on April 30th will receive a prize (you’re not winning the lotto, dear people, but I will mail you a small gift which will include a modest Amazon card).  In the event of a tie, a randomly generated number will decide the winner. So, be sure to check back here each day, & let’s see who can . . .

Name That Location:

Hint: One of the deepest lakes in Europe, it’s been a destination for the wealthy and powerful since Roman times.  A glacial, Y-shaped lake, it has its own micro-climate with moderate temperatures.  Richard Branson & George Clooney are known to have lakeside villas here, although I didn’t spot them on this hazy day.  It’s considered one of the most beautiful lakes in its country. Name the Lake & country.

  1. I believe that is Lake Como where George Clooney purchased his villa in Lombardy, northern Italy. I’m curious about that line that goes up the side of the hill. Is it a cable car of some kind?
