Lucian Freud & Modigliani at Museo Correr

At Marco’s house in Firenze, Italy. (Florence)

We stayed here along with a couple from St. Petersburg, Russia (Petrograd); two girls from Germany, two girls from Bydgoszez, Poland; and a girl from Brazil. This was one of my favorite nights of our trip.

34 rusting cars in his backyard …

“David Copy” and Neptune in Palazzo Vecchio

Since everyone, it seems, loves to take pictures like this when they are on vacation, we decided to take pictures with statues ourselves and this led to imitating all of the statues in Palazzo Vechhio.
Who has the picture of the Medusa!?

Pompeii, Italy.

Mt. Vesuvius in the distance.

The people of Pompeii were not killed from the actual lava; they died of carbon dioxide asphyxiation.

Carley through a grape vine.

Coming into Switzerland. I suspect I will be back to this country within the next 5 years.

Ralph, Andrea and Carley.
In Switzerland, Austria, Germany and the Netherlands about a month-sized cloud of rain followed us around. The first month of our trip was a drought (40 degrees Celsius every day, heat waves, and deaths).

This is an “I finally got to shower” face.

In St. Gallen, Switzerland.

Glutenfrei, Carley foods!

Ralph and a lot of Swiss chocolate.

Near Lake of Constance.

Christine & a mountain goat.

I think he never stopped chewing the same cud.

She was wayyyyy into Carley.

Three minutes after I took this, a cloud ran into us!

Swiss cheese factory.

In Wien, Austria (Vienna): we wound up with one umbrella and one color to share from.

Carley drawing someone awake on the train for once.

Okay, hands down the most bizarre thing we did.
Swarovski’s Kristallwelten (Crystal Worlds)

The “Golden Roof” in Innsbruck, Austria.
Our day with Helene and Edgar.

The Mirabell Gardens in Salzburg, Austria.

A really impressive cemetery in Salzburg.

From the Hohensalzburg Fortress.

The puppet museum!

Decks that are dominated by flowers, plants or jungles are complete normalcy everywhere we went.
& Kufstein.

The butterfly house in Vienna.


Wait, hold on a second, look between Carley and Katja and tell me if that isn’t the creepiest face you’ve ever seen.

At Felix, Moritz and Lara’s apartment in Hamburg.

Check if she’s heavier than a duck for me, please.

Felix’s in Köln, Germany. I miss this pretty bad.


Okay, Amsterdam.
Check out the man: he is loving the Red Light District.

Most unusual/awesome place we stayed: Lucas’ boat.

And back to London.

  1. I just spent about 20 minutes looking at these and loved every minute.

    These pictures are amazing and makes your trip seem flawless. Even the rain looks wonderful.

  2. Well then that makes all of the time and effort of resizing the pictures, uploading them then hosting them worth it.
    Hopefully more people also quietly and secretly enjoyed them; thank you.

  3. my aunt died at eleven this morning, her funeral is on my birthday. i was going to have to drive to boston for that again, but i decided that i do not want to be in that environment right now and i would be much better off around supportive people. so i am pretty sure i am going to drive south instead of east and come to raleigh next week instead

  4. I was, and am supposed to still be, in Raleigh, but my landlord wasn’t ready for us to move in when our lease started & I wasn’t allowed to paint – so it was driving me a little crazy. I have to get furniture today and tomorrow but call me anytime you are available!
