The leaning tower was absolutely amazing.  You see so many pictures of it and they all kind of become cliche’.  You’ve seen one you’ve seen them all.  I think the most important thing is to actually see it with your own eyes.  We traveled the entire day by train to this little city that I don’t even remember the name.  We then rented a car and drove through the mountains all the way to Pisa.  When you get there and walk around the corner and see this international icon standing in front of you its absolutely amazing.  Its completely unexpected.  You just don’t exactly know what to expect.  But I do believe it completely exceeded my expectations.

Because we were limited on time we didn’t get to stay that long.  I think we ate some Gelato (go figure) and then went back to our hotel.  There are several other buildings around Pisa that I wish we could have explored or just walked around the city a bit.  All in all it was well worth the road trip to get there.  If I could do it again I’d probably stay a couple of days in Pisa.

Oh…forgive the leaning tower selfie….ya got to get one 🙂  I’m actually happier in real person 🙂

About Adventures in the Burbs (72 Articles)
I'm now considered a survivor. A survivor of what you may ask? For my entire life I have been a walking time bomb due to a visitor embedded in my brain called an AVM, or an Arteriovenous Malformation. I never actually knew I had it. My story of survival is so improbably and spectacular that it is worthy of an entire book in itself. I may have a post in here somewhere on my blog that covers it. In the end I’ve survived a brain hemorrhage, brain surgery and I’ve been left with Epilepsy and Left Side Neglect. Believe it or not, Left Side Neglect has been nothing less than a fascinating experience although I don’t recommend it for the feeble or weak minded. In the end that time bomb exploded yet I’m still here to put my adventures up on this blog and I will never let my survivor experience hold me back from life. Although I’m now considered a “Survivor”, throughout life I have been many things and it seems I have assumed many different identities along the way. For me life has been a zigzagging adventure woven with change and that change has always been good. I’m truly blessed as my life has been nothing short of amazing and my cup has always been overflowing even in the worst of times. I’ve had a good family, good friends, excellent mentors along the way and an amazing wife. Wonder if she will actually ever read this?? I’ve been a musician, a dishwasher, a pizza maker, a break-dancer, a skateboarder, a long haired metal head, a United States Marine, a husband, a father to many, a technologist, a college student, an adventure racer, a businessman, a manager, a leader, a crisis manager, a Harley Davidson enthusiast, a wannabe bourbon connoisseur, an amateur RV’er, an amateur blogger, an amateur writer, an amateur photographer, a thinker, a doer, a traveler, a wannabe digital nomad, an adventurer, and a remote worker. So as you can see I’ve maintained just a few identities….but what’s in an identity anyway. I know my identity as a “survivor” will not sum up my existence nor define me as a person. My name is Will and I am all of those identities listed above and then some. Hopefully you will join me on my journey. Do take Care, Will
