I started getting all nostalgic thinking about this time last year. My best friend Lizzy and I went on 2 1/2 month backpacking trip to Europe, last October - December. I can't believe it's already been a year..? Over a year?
We started in Paris then went to Lille, Brugges, Brussels, Berlin, Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Berlin again, Vienna, Venice, Athens, Venice again, Florence, Rome, Palermo, Taormina, Paris again, Barcelona, Sevilla, Granada, Madrid, Lisbon, London, then back to Lille & Paris. We had spet Thanksgiving in Sevilla, and my brother flew in to visit us for a few weeks and Joe met us in Paris and spent a week with us in Spain. Alright, alright, I wont bore you with my melancholy musings, here are some pictures (just be happy i didn't post all 3,000.)
Part of the Berlin Wall
lizzy being adorable
Somehow I ended up getting a ridiculous amount of bug bites/hives? They started appearing in Venice and continued to haunt me until midway through our flight home to San Diego. Anyway, this one's a gem. Either it was one hefty bug, or a collection of about 10 bites in one area. (gross, i know)
Gettin' artsy in Sicily
Holy smokes! Rome
Some protesters/activists in London. Camping out until the war is over.
Alright, so I took a picture in the Sistine Chapel. sue me.
Cute carosel in Paris
This is how I spent a lot of the train rides/down time. Fleet Foxes on the iPod and doodles in my moleskine. You may recognize the top drawing from here. Funny, because I drew it in Germany and now it's being used in a catalog that distributes there.
Alright. that's it. Enjoy, don't enjoy, whatever :)
Joe and I are working on some fun projects, can't wait to share!
Happy December everyone (is it really already December?!)
