Days 51 - 65: Italia

Ed Ruscha, Hello I Must Be Going

In an effort to pack light for the first time in my life, I will not be bringing my laptop to Italy. I've struggled with this decision for weeks, thinking about buying an iPad so I could update the blog but still be weighted down with my big camera. That wasn't the greatest solution either so I acquired a small camera (that I've plugged incessantly in previous posts) and my only access to the world online will be through my phone at irregular intervals. It's the first time my summer project will not be updated as the work transpires. I don't think it's an ideal situation but that's the way it is has to be for my own sanity as I traipse across Northern Italy through big cities, small towns, over land and water with minimal luggage. I am off for a couple weeks but never fear... one entry will be posted a day until I return... all but one are Italian centric.

This is all in an effort not to look like this:

  1. It's a different context, I know, but I found that being mostly devoid of tech (some of which by accident) during my Italy trip to be a mostly positive thing. I didn't feel like I had an 'audience' and so was able to completely retreat into introspectrovision and came out with some good things.

    Of course this also means I can't stalk the blog and live vicariously through it, though....

    Good luck and have fun!
