European Vacation and Lots of Change

The last two months have been a complete whirlwind. In that time, I’ve wrapped up my  3+ years of work at SF Environment (with the exception of the Regional Recycling Database project), spent two weeks exploring Holland and Italy, and started a brand new position at Change.org. More on the latter later, but for now, I want to share some pics of my European Vacation.

The original impetus for the trip was to attend the wedding of my girlfriend’s Dutch cousin, which provided the perfect opportunity for some solid international travel. So, to start, we spent a gloriously cozy week with her family in Amsterdam, riding bikes, taking in art and architecture, cruising in canal boats, and drinking Heineken. Here are some of the Holland highlights:

Holland is beautiful, green, wet, and grey, so, after the overcast, we decided to hit up the Mediterranean for some much needed sun. Enter Italy, specifically Rome and the Amalfi Coast south of Naples. Incredible food, remarkable history and barely controlled chaos provided a surprisingly relaxing yet most romantic retreat for our second week out. Check out some of the memorable moments:

As I mentioned, the adventure continues at Change.org. I’ll be capturing some of my initial thoughts after my first week on the job, so stay tuned!
