One whirlwind trip to Milan and Lake Maggiore later, I'm back in Oxford, working hard again. This has to have been one of the most action-packed short trips in recent memory, though. We found someone's wallet (and were given a really nice electric kettle as a reward), got into the grounds of Isola Bella for free when we got swept up with a gaggle of British tourists, took a 3-hour boat to Locarno in Switzerland and then missed the boat back (thank you, bad Italian signage), and then we made a mad dash for one final meal in Milan on our way back to the airport (and finding a hidden restaurant gem in Milan was very, very worthwhile).
