First Stop: Lake Como

Posted by Chelsey

After flying in to Paris and getting settled at my friend's home, we set off for a weekend at Lake Como the next day.  Traveling to Lake Como has been a dream ever since I saw it in Star Wars Episode II.  You know, the scenes of Anakin and Padme awkwardly falling in love.  It was magic to me.

That's my dear friend, Reka.  This picture represents her so well: ready to explore.  She was placed in my apartment in college while she was studying abroad, and we've been inseparable ever since.  We talked about going on a big adventure together one day.  Insert France and Italy!  I'm grateful we've had the chance to make so many memories together.   

The walk to the ferry that took us to our corner of the lake was dreamy.  The sun was starting to drift down and everything began to have a dewy Como glow.  We found a cute park right by the ferry station where we could wait.

The photos from the ferry ride show the glimpses of some of the most awe-inspiring beauty I've ever seen.  I can't wait to share them with you!

*Pictures were edited using new Photoshop Actions from the A Beautiful Mess Complete Collection.  Those gals are awesome.*
