Old Italy photos

I have been thinking a lot about the trip I took to Italy when I was a senior. Today I looked through my album that Mom and Dad made me and the black at white photos that I took. I enjoy thinking back on all the times Lauren and I stayed up late talking about how we wanted to go there and Dad showing his slides. It has been nice to think about the funny things that happened on that trip too. Like how in Pisa James kicked a panhandlers cup over and the money went all over and guy got all mad. At church Lauren saw people she knew from school. And how Dad and Maurizio were a Gospel spreading machine handing out pass along cards and talking to everyone. I think it is amazing how traveling can change your perspective and help you understand things you thought you knew but didn't really. It's like seeing the Grand Canyon and finally understanding how grand it really is.

The photos are grainy because I pushed them when developing.
