Boscopark-Parco Aventura, Italy

After a good search hubby came up with something different to do with the wee man during our holiday in Italy. We headed to Boscopark-Parco aventura in Bosco Chiesanuova which is about an hours drive from Verona up into the mountains. It is basically the Italian version of Go Ape. Considering our wee man's love of climbing we figured he would enjoy it and that he certainly did.

There are a variety of courses depending on size and the wee man was perfect for the baby course. It was 5 euros and you could go around for as many times as you like. The guys give a great safety demonstration and spoke directly to the wee man while we listened on. It was a tentative start as he figured things out but was racing around by the second go. He was pretty keen to try the higher course but thankfully for my nerves he was too short. They had a tester run so at least the wee man figured this out for himself. After we had a picnic lunch at a local park before walking into town to treat the wee man to a big bowl of ice cream! I was so proud of my wee man!

Exploring Monte Baldo

One of the things we love doing on our visit to the Nonni is spending some time in the mountains. We chose a short walk in Monte Baldo following a gentle road taking us to the top. The majority of tourists take the cable car from Malcesine along Lake Garda. It explained a lot the inappropriately dressed tourists in their summer dresses. It would not have been the best day for them either as it was foggy chilly and the rain arrived when we made it to the top.

Our walk would usually be about 40 minutes but it took just over an hour with my wee man. Admittedly I was impressed as the only complaint we got was that it was too easy and he kept veering off the path to climb rocks and discover paths through the grassy hillside. It was lovely seeing the flora of the mountain and we spotted huge snails, cows with noisy bells and goats and sheep. We treated ourselves to a warm lunch at the top as unfortunately I missed the view to the lake with all the mist.

I was so proud of my little adventurer who promptly fell asleep on the drive home.
