Time to take my own advice! Last week, I used my blog to share some top tips for those people who are on the road with poker and this week, I’m the one traveling. I’m in Campione, Switzerland to play the WPT National event.
Thankfully, Campione is close enough to where I live in Italy to make it possible to drive here, which meant no airplane pyjamas were needed this time. My brother-in-law to be was kind enough to do all the driving, so I was free to sit in the back of the car, eat snacks and watch WSOP Main Event videos on my iPad. Not a bad way to travel.
The journey also gave me a little time to do some research. Although the Casino is in Campione, we’re staying at a beautiful hotel on the lake in Lugano, only a short drive away. When we checked in, the woman at the desk told us that we were lucky to get ourselves a lake-facing room, and boy was she right. The view is absolutely stunning. People swim in the lake during the warmer months but as it’s October, I’ll content myself with just taking in the peaceful lake from the safety & warmth of the balcony.
While I’m here in Switzerland, this is my list of things to do (including playing poker obviously).
- A boat excursion to see Lugano by water plus a good meal taken lake-side.
- A trip up one of the surrounding mountains on the funicular railway, to get a few snapshots of the view up there as well.
- A visit to the Alprose Chocolate Museum where you can learn about the history of chocolate, see it being made and then obviously stuff yourself silly on it in the gift shop.
After that, I’m guessing a sugar coma will probably take up the rest of my trip. – Kara Scott
