Flocking to Florence

We managed to visit the city of Florence in Italy's north on a couple of different occasion during our travels of Italy. Battling it out on the streets with the throng of tourist, gypsies street merchants and their affiliated merch (including the ever so stylish, old school penis apparel see examples below), there is plenty to do and see in this grand old city.

If you are persistent and are willing to spend the days chewing pavement in the less crowded and touristy backstreets, you will find the beautiful, authentic and charming qualities which Florence has to offer.

The Natural Amusement Park

No words that I can type can do Corsica the justice its deserves. The small island located off the bottom of France is the most naturally picturesque place which I've ever had the chance to visit. Our two week stay was nowhere near long enough.

Fun with friends in the French Riveria

We were lucky enough to have had the chance to spend two wicked weeks exploring the French Rivera. From the ritz and glitz of Monaco, Nice and Cannes to the more out of the way spots such and Toulon and Gonfaron. What made our time in the Rivera doubly as awesome is because we got to meet and hang out with two legends from Oregon, Billy and Gentry.

Here are a few shots from the hood in the French Rivera.

And the winner is Barcelona

While traveling around the world I've had the pleasure of visiting some amazing cities. But I've always struggled to find one that I'd enjoy living in, until I arrived in Barcelona. 

Barcelona is a eclectic Spanish city that must be injecting something delightful into the water because the place is filled to the brim with great vibes, rich culture, history and of course the mind-blowing works of the Spanish Catalan architect Goudi, who was usually off his dial, dreaming up some kind of off the hook construction. Ahhh my kind of place!

If you haven't been to Barcelona yet, throw it on your list. It won't disappoint.
