  1. Holy Trinity Brompton

    I originally typed most of this up about two years ago. I never finished it and it’s been sitting in my draft posts ever since.

    One of my good friends, Liz, is studying abroad in London this semester and mentioned that she was going to go check…

  2. Zürich Airport

    I’m at Zürich airport right now. My flight takes off in about an hour. I fly to Frankfurt on Air Berlin and then switch to United and fly to Dulles, Washington, D.C.

    I go through customs at Dulles and then hop back on United and fly to Denver …

  3. Last Day in Europe

    Well, today is my last day in Europe. I decided to take it easy. I’ve spent most of today catching up on all the writing I’ve been wanting to do, but have never had the time or haven’t felt motivated to do.

    At the very end of his stay, Remo’s twin brother, Günther,…

  7. Greetings from Agnone

    A really long day today with lots of traveling.

    Took a train from Florence to Rome (1.5 hours)

    Rented a car and then drove to Agnone (3 hours)

    Investigated Agnone, where my mothers, mothers, father was born.

  8. Vacation

    There was a reason why our family never took really long vacations: we don’t work well together after only a few days together. That and I’ve been away from everything I know for over a week now. This generally isn’t an issue, but I’ve had nothing…

  9. Random Notes on Italy

    On English
    Italy is the first country that I’ve been to on this trip where English was not the primary language. However, it is interesting to note how many people speak English, both the local Italians and many foreigners who don’t s…
