    Gorgeous page about Ascona, where we spent about 1,5 hours yesterday as a little sidetrip from Locarno.

    mhhhh... I'll never understand why people from "outside" (and this includes my husband) get to like Ascona so much...

    Some breathtaking views from the dam... Useful info for a delicious pizza and mountain biking around.

    Looks like you had another great weekend there. Say: did you ever made that bungee-jump? (and the pizza looks delicious, but it seems I am always hungry these times...)
