I may be a very young sock monkey but nothing was going to stop me from an Italian adventure! So I sneaked into the suitcase and off we went.
As soon as the case was opened I leapt out with a big "Ta da" into Mammy's arms for a cuddle. Luckily she was pleased to see me - phew! Now to explore Lake Garda.
Now any of you fellow sock monkeys will know that our legs are really too short to pedal a bike, so when the humans hired bikes I clung onto the handlebars to get the best view.
The next adventure was mountain climbing! Remember me mentioning having short legs? Well mountains are big! I was worried. How would I keep up? Thank goodness there was a cable car so the only bit I had to climb was the top so I could look out at the fabulous view.
It was a long, tiring day and I was glad when we got on a slow ferry back to Garda. It's a great way to travel and watch the boats. Every time we stopped somewhere the captain said the name of the place three times. I'm sure these places are only named once, not like New York (so good they named it twice apparently).
One of my favourite days was a visit to Sirmione. There is a big ruined villa here called the Grotte de Catullo that's surrounded by olive groves. I climbed a tree and explored the ruin. Sat on the steps I wondered if it had been made for giants. I felt very small.
Sirmione also has a mini golf course and the competition between the humans was intense. Eighteen holes, fiercely contested, all came down to the last hole. I won't reveal who won, but it was by a single shot!
We visited Verona as well. There was a big amp...amfy...ampi..round thingy with arches. They used to have games in there and people and animals died, not sock monkeys though.
I thoroughly enjoyed my week at Lake Garda and I was allowed to fly home with Mammy even though I didn't have a seat.
