Lets go to Italy

If you enjoy travel, photography, adventure, trying new foods, seeing unique architecture or simply learning something new, then I think you will enjoy this series.  I have been fortunate to have the opportunity to travel extensively in Europe and I wanted to share that experience with you.  Enjoy and I hope this encourages you to explore new places and devote time to international travel.

If you have interest in purchasing a print from this series you can find my contact information below.  I have the capabilities to print very large prints and even print on canvas with a gallery wrap.  To see a price list click here


While in Florence, my friends and I discovered a Fiat 500 driving tour that allowed us to drive the cars in and around the city.  The owner of the company was actually British and she was passionate about these little cars.  If you want to see a really cool website with an awesome example of quality branding, check out her site here. She owns 6 of the vintage 500's and would drive a lead car and speak to you through a headset that would broadcast into your car.  As you drove past landmarks she would tell you the history and significance of them.  The 500 is the Italians' answer to the Mini Cooper.  It's small, economical, basic, quirky and fun.  And these older ones can be finicky as well.  Of course, they are stick shifts and a treat to drive on narrow Italian streets.
