21 Days to Departure…
Another adventure looms. In just three weeks, we leave for a month in Southern Italy. Prepare for photospam!
14 Days to Departure…
Getting things ready. Getting things done. Getting excited.
7 Days to Departure…
It’s nearly time to go… packing has begun.
12 hours to Departure…
Holy crap… bags are pretty much packed. Just need to shower and get to sleep. IF I CAN EVEN SLEEP!!!!
1 Hour to Departure…
So at 11:55 last night I got a call from mom… their Redding to San Francisco flight had been canceled. Quick scramble and they made the 4 hour drive down, getting to my place around 4:30 this morning. Quick nap, and I dropped them at the airport, ditching their car at my office and Lyfting […]
Day 1: Airports, and Rental Cars and Squid Ink, Oh My!
It was a long, long, long flight. Okay, so maybe only 8.5 hours, but still, it was cramped. Okay, so maybe we were in Economy Plus, but still, it was… actually over pretty painlessly. Staff on the flight was great. Biggest trial and tribulation was having to wait for my in-seat entertainment system to reboot. […]
Day 2: The Road Less on Fire

Day 3: Mayor of The Sun

Day 4: The Holy Baby Grenade of Antioch
So Tuesday was the Assumption of Mary, which means, in a strongly Roman Catholic country, it was a holiday and everything was closed. This was troubling as the other half of our party was arriving, and there was little to no food in the house. P, L and the babbies got here circa lunch time, […]
Day 5: Four F#@#ing Kilos of Parmesan
Believe it or not, I didn’t take ANY pictures on Wednesday. The day started out a bit lazy. Slow morning filled with babbie laughter and occasional shouts of “NO! DON’T CLIMB IN THE FIREPLACE!!” Breakfast of those store packaged croissants. Lunch of ham, salami and cheese panini, smooshed on the panini-press. And some nice, general […]
