When I returned to Europe from my 9 month excursion to Afghanistan, I immediately wanted to be by the water.  It was the fourth of July weekend and Lake Garda being only 7 hours away seemed like the perfect location for a long weekend getaway.  I stayed at Camping Lucia (http://www.campinglucia.it/) in a 4 person bungalow at 25 euro a night which included a mountain bike tour at Garda on Bike (http://www.gardaonbike.com).  What a steal!  I spent my last day canyoning.  Canyoning is nature’s waterpark.  The day was spent sliding down waterfalls and jumping into water holes with a group of Germans and a couple of Scots, Matt and Laura.  Matt, Laura, and I ended spending the evening roaming around the lake, enjoying cafe correctos (an espresso with a shot of liquor), dinner, and dessert by the lake.  The highlight of the evening was when Matt saved a duckling and reunited it with its family.  Aww!
