It was wonderful to meet so many VT'ers - just wished I'd been more organised and researched people's pages more. Even when I got home I was suddenly remembering oh that was such and such a person and I wish I had remembered where they were from and what I had put on their pages! Thats the trouble with such a large group and a relative short space of time - no real time for indepth conversations unfortunately.

However it was a great meeting and after all my deliberations about whether to go I'm glad I did. Not only a great great meeting (reputed to be the biggest and best so far) but a lovely location too. Just 10 minutes away via a Scagliero castle is the delightful hamlet of Borghetto by the Mincio River.

..and just on the outskirts of Valeggio is the beautiful park of Sigurta where the colours of the foliage were stunning.
Well done to the marvellous VT orgamisers for choosing this location:-)

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:italian sunshine, great scenery, great company
  • Cons:too short a stay :-( Missed the bellydancing!
  • In a nutshell:great location for a meeting

    Great pics of a lovely town. I can see that the VT meeting was unforgettable. What a pity I couldn't be there.

    Sandy your tips and pictures are extremely good! I missed those animals in that park but because it took some about 3 hours to decide to go or not to go, we only saw a small part. great to see it through your pictures!
