a year in travels.....

2008 was a pretty darn good year.

Stone and I got to travel A WHOLE BUNCH so I thought I would post a few photos from our year in travels

We decided it was time for Stone to get the hell out of dodge... So we took a trip to Italy. Our first stop: Corniglia in the Cinque Terre. This is the view from the room we rented.

Next stop: Florence
Our friend Lisa made the trek with us
Lil Jon decided to visit Florence too!!!!

We decided to kick back and take a looooooonnnnnggg lunch after a day of museuming it.

Next Stop: Rome
true story......I was having a very rough go of it the day we went to the Vatican (above)....we had been out the night before with peeps from our hostel. While walking around St. Peter's Basilica I kept thinking to myself "everything just looks SOOOO blurry". No matter how many times I rubbed my eyes, the amazing sites to see just wouldn't come clear! (this went on for about 1.5-2 hours) I then realized that I in my haste/fog that morning I had put the ole contacts in the wrong eyes.

Next stop: London
The weather in Italy had been AMAZING...I even got a little sunburn. Therefore we were NOT prepared for the frigid temps upon our arrival to the UK.

we had a great time sampling the brew at local pubs

My sister invited the whole family down to their condo in Clearwater, FL for the 4th of July
(above: my niece Laney ready to rock on the 4th)
my mom, me and my sister soaking up the rays

We hadn't been on a real live family vacation in years so it was great to just sit back, relax and enjoy the family time.....and it didn't hurt that the weather was beautiful

I threw this in just for kicks.....this is one of my bro's CLEARLY loving his life while in the sunshine state.

My good friend Emma up and moved to San Francisco...well not really, she has lived there for about three years but you catch my drift. It was high time we hopped a plane to see her!

We had just been on a tour (which turned into 3 hours of free tasty brew) of the Anchor Steam Brewery....needless to say silly times were had on the way back to her apartment.
This could quite possible be the greatest picture I have ever taken. I love it!!!

We had dinner one night at Suppenk├╝che and got to drink our beer out of a giant break it you buy it though so BE CAREFUL!!!!
