I think I’ll declare this blog offically dead…

there’s one more think I want to do, but don’t expect more than that 1 post in the next month or so. Additionally, that one post ought to be a formal wrap up of this blog that will stand for a while.

Unfollow accordingly, but know the ask box should remain active on this site as long as I have the url. I’m happy to answer any questions on any topic.

Love,

Little late on this one but, whatever.

If you look at the video on youtube the title explains it all, I shot this at the Christmas tree lighting ceremony in Parma early in December, we’re a little past Christmas but as my family’s tree is still up I figured I was still allowed to share this.

Hey, I’m back, but not for long.

So these are the start of the end, as these photos were taken about a day before I started my journey back home (where I am now).

The nine pictures are on the Cittadella in Parma which was built by on of the Dukes of the region in the 1500s. I believe it was Alessandro Farnese, but I’m not sure anymore. He is famous in his own right (seriously, he is) but that’s not too important as far as this blog goes.

Essentially this fortress was turned into a park, with a soccer field and a basketball court and a few others typical park things as well. They really did do a nice job,m I’m curious what it looks like during not that winter.

I spent a while in there and would have had more pictures had my camera not died on me and if I hadn’t gotten really hungry while walking around. Oh well.

As it is, I liked all of the pictures but couldn’t figure out a nice way to group them except to give you this mass of photos.

Hope you like it anyways.

By the way, USA/ rest of world, you got nothing on Italian hot chocolate. Italy wins.

View from a fortress near Aosta, we went here on our way back to Parma.
This place was massive, so big and so high up it was impossible to get a picture.
It didn’t surprise me one bit that a tiny force was able to hold Napoleon there for a long time.

Christmas market in Aosta, not anywhere near as big or commercial as those in Vienna but very Christmas-y.
