Janice. Met her on a motorcycle ride, joked about her shiny sweet ride. She grew up in the neighborhood next to mine, and was familiar with a lot of the same places from life. Missing toes on one foot, everything from shin down on the another and some digits on her hands. Well spirited and friendly, we enjoyed sharing a joke or two. 4 months ago, I rode past her on Washington Ave. and felt led to circle around. I carry with me and hand out Hormel Chili or Target gift cards when I feel led. We chatted For sometime, praying for a surgery set up for the following day. Praying for both the doctor she did not like and the second half of a digit removal. Not one to post pics of people I’ve met like this, but I’ve always wondered how the surgery went. If anyone happens upon her please say hello from the Chilliman 🙂
"The waiting game"
After a short trip to Manchester last Friday, I decided to break my journey down south in London the next day and spend a few hours to get some more street photos. An obvious place is always Shoreditch, where all the hipsters and artists hang around. After walking around aimlessly for a bit, I approached Brick Lane and it did not dissappoint. Within an hour and without even trying very hard I got a few good shots that made my detour worth it. #justwaiting#hangingaround#bricklane
European Honeymoon: Day 16 of 40
Today was another pretty long travel day for us as we had to make our way down to Italy. Our flight from Amsterdam to Milan was at 8:30am, so we got up around 5:30am and headed to the airport. It was a super quick flight, and then from the airport we rented a car for the next 17 days we have in Italy. Our plan is to basically drive from Milan, and down the whole west coast of Italy, and then back up the east coast and end in Florence. Then from there we have another five days left and plan to head over to Slovenia for the last leg of our trip. We decided our first stop in Italy was going to be Cinque Terre. From Milan it was about a three hour drive to the beautiful town of Manarola in Cinque Terre. When we got there we met Giorgio, the host of our awesome little place called Ca' del Monica. He showed us around the town a little and gave us some great recommendations on what to do and where to eat, and was honestly one of the nicest guys we'd ever met. After we got settled in we walked down to the marina and were awestruck by the beauty of this place. We walked up to this look out point where there was also a bar called Neesun Dorma, and we sat and enjoyed the beautiful sunset while drinking great wine and eating delicious meats. We were still pretty hungry so we decided to take the recommendation from our host and had an incredible meal of pasta and seafood at Marina Piccola! 🍝🐟🍷#eurotrip#honeymoon#tripofalifetime
