Six word Saturday

A journey to a mythical place

A castle hovers in the sky

Bright memories – 3

A sultry day. Small boy grouses. He’d rather be in the pool, but no- we’re going on an adventure. We walk through the verdant valley. The river flows, silently. And then, suspended in the sky, we see it! Arco in Trentino-Alto. A sight never to be forgotten, it lingers in my memory.

Six Word Saturday



  1. How extraordinary. I want a layer of mist above the town so the castle actually does float. Did you walk up there? It looks like quite a steep up to me! But of course you would have been a youngster then. And you’d probably make it up there now! I am liking these memories you are finding. More please.


  2. That’s great to know, Eunice! I can still remember my disbelief when I saw the castle suspended there in the sky. James would only have been about 5 (so 26 years ago!) so we never got beyond having an icecream in the main skware πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    1. 26 years ago was the first time my ex and I went on holiday together and the very first time we went to Lake Garda – I completely fell in love with the whole place and have loved it ever since πŸ™‚

  3. I remember Arco and the Sarca river very well. We would often cycle from the lake along the river on the Torbole side as far as Arco, picnic by a quaint little bridge where there was a popular swimming spot, then cycle back on the Riva side. 2009 was the first time I holidayed on my own, I hired a bike from Torbole and went right up to the castle, pushing the bike up heaven knows how many steep steps to get there. It was only when I got to the top that I found out there was a proper tarmac path on the far side! The views were fabulous though, right up the valley on one side and down to the lake on the other πŸ™‚
