Back from Italy
I realize I didn’t actually inform you, my readers, that I was going to be away for the last couple weeks. Whoops =)
I spent the 11th through the 23rd in Europe, mostly in Italy, for my good friend Paolo’s wedding. He’s from the beautiful city of Trieste, and decided with his bride Roxy to hold the wedding there in the same church where his parents were married some 49 years ago.
It was a fantastic trip, my first to Europe. There was one rather nasty incident pretty much as soon as I arrived involving the theft of my passport and brand new laptop. The Milan police were immediately informed and given a license plate number to track down, but so far they’ve been pretty useless and dismissive.
I wasn’t about to let that ruin my first European experience, though, and it did not. Over just a few days I was in Milan, Monza, Bolzana, Munich, Venice, and Trieste. If you’re a friend of mine on Facebook you were likely treated to a largely real-time photo blogging of my trip thanks to the iPhone’s camera and Facebook app.
Now I’m home and working to get back into the swing of things.
