Wow, has it been a month since I updated this thing? Apparently so... Anyway, not much time to write, but a brief synopsis of the past month: Europe was amazing, as my bro Matt and I had an absolute blast over there. From meeting Nic Denholm and his friends over in Tring, England, to our whirlwind tour through mainland Europe (Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Zurich and Venice, all by train, all in the span of 5 days), to Chloe and Brooke, two girls from south London who helped spring us into The Ministry of Sound on our last night in London ("No all male groups!" the bitchy lady at the front of the queue said)... it was a blast. Then last weekend in Boston was great, my first time there. My friend Josh Tenisci gets to live in a cool city, I must admit. I saw where the Boston Massacre and the Boston Tea Party took place (separate locations), and I
saw the graves of American legends like John Hancock, Samuel Adams, and Paul Revere. Plus, I got to hit some of the coolest bars in the city, and Josh and I had dinner at the oldest restaurant in the United States (the Union Oyster House). And, last Friday, I turned 24. So.. it's been an eventful month.
Last night I saw the Counting Crows play in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. It was an incredible show, and I hope to have my review of it up on here soon...
