History In Hamburg

The official name of Hamburg is the “Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg”. The city is a major transportation hub for both land and water and is the ninth largest working port in the world, and only second in all of Europe. The multitude of boardwalks provides many eating and shopping experiences. An array of ships from all eras can be found here. Museums, activities, professional sports, transportation, industrial and world famous companies all reside in Hamburg.The architecture of Hamburg is second to none, be sure to check out The World’s largest stretch of warehouses called Speicherstadt. An interesting building called the Chilehouse is a brick office building designed to look like a boat. Created during the roaring twenties, The Town Hall is a phenomenally detailed building that houses the city council. The ornate building is a must see and captures great on camera. Throughout Hamburg you will notice the medieval buildings all decadent in their own style of shops, homes, and offices. Be sure to capture a few photos along the way. Enjoy a famous Hamburg Schnitzel and a tasty beverage; it will help fuel your walking tour.

From home to Rome…

Vatican Rome Italy
Rome Italy

My first day in Italy

Here is a little status update, after a few adjustments from the airport to my destination I have ma

de it safely. For the next two nights I’ll be staying in a guest house in the Vatican City.

I am pretty excited just for that in itself. Maybe I’ve watched a few too many movies with Tom Hanks?

Vatican Rome Italy

Before I even dropped my bags, pumped to be here in Italy.

The last time I was in Rome I was eighteen years old, so roughly ten years ago, I came on my high school senior trip and loved it. After it was all done I had the intentions of returning one day, I just wasn’t sure

when. So here I am now,  walking around the Vatican City soaking it all in. I’m going to out and search for some epic Italian food. Who’s in to join?



Official dates set August 2011 European volleyball tryouts

I have my dates set for a try out to play professional volleyball in Europe. Hopefully I’ll get selected by one of the European leagues as an opposite hitter for a 2011-2012 season. If not then I’ll travel the world a little bit. But hopefully the goal is to be picked up by any team in any country. We will see how the process goes.
