Today was the day I think Mike was most looking forward to this holiday - a day out on Lake Garda in a Riva Aquarama. A beautiful mahogany speedboat dating back to the 1960s, it is an incredible ride. We swam, pulled up for a drink, wake boarded, drove, Mike even got to check out the engines. An awesome day.
Mike and I have just watched Everest, the opening night film at this year's Venice International Film Festival. We witnessed a little of the crazy that accompanies a celebrity red carpet - BYO ladder by the way - before joining 1700 others to watch the 3D movie. Although no Birdman, which had this prestigious opening slot at last year's festival, the cinematography was stunning. And I can safely say, I have no desire to EVER climb Mount Everest.
