Rear view of Isola Bella Gardens

Posted by
Eric Cousineau (Sherwood Park, Canada) on 9 September 2009 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

The island and its beautiful gardens were finally completed in 1671 and have been visited by many famous people including Napoleon and his wife Joséphine and, much later the Princess of Wales. The Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas with its grand Italian mansion theme is said to have been modelled after Isola Bella and the Borromeo island mansions.

Wine is constant proof that God loves us and loves to see us happy.

I don't think of myself as a role model. I do try to live in a compassionate, considerate and positive way. The only advice I can offer is to find what you love to do, find the joy in it, and express yourself through your passion.
