I was in Italy with my gf for a couple of weeks. Two weeks of no Internet or web browsing (okay, 10 minutes of CNN.com + Kottke + Waxy in the hotel but the connection died and never came back). We went to Sardinia (Alghero), Rome, then Venice. It was highly enjoyable and relaxing—and nothing to do with the Pope, I swear.

As is my M.O., I told hardly anyone I was going. It felt nice to just disappear for a bit. Drop out. (Only Dakota noticed).

We just got back a few minutes ago and I wanted to check my mail and make sure nothing awful happened. Nothing awful happened. In fact I think I like this whole spend more than 36 minutes (my current commute) away from the computer.

That said, I should go to sleep. I have the wobbly jet lag bends. It's like 11am somewhere and I should be sipping an espresso and nibbling on some prosciutto (which my auto-correction is trying to change to prostitute...)




Welcome home! Now post lots of amusing stories and great photos about your trip!

Oh no, we noticed alright!

I was planning on having search planes dispatched this morning. Lucky timing! ;)

Sounds like fun. I've been wanting to get to italy for a long long time.

I did the whole "don't check in on the world" thing on my last trip. It felt incredible.


I noticed. I even did a Google search of "Where is Andre?"


Excellent! Can't wait to hear about it!


i noticed. then i IMed dakota. he didn't know, but then he must've googled "where is andre?" because he had an answer not long thereafter. :)


How was it being locked in the Vatican with 116 other cranky old men?
