Here is a European-sounding song by Beirut called Nantes that Liz and I play a cover of to get you in the European mood! Beirut is a huge inspiration and big favorite of Liz and I. When we were first planning our backpacking trip, we envisioned ourselves playing on the streets of Paris to make money for a fancy meal that night. We quickly realized that we did not want to haul our instruments around Europe, as it would be a big hassle.
I’m leaving on a jet plane tonight at 6:15. I will have a 6 hour lay over in Dublin and will land in Rome around 7 (Italy time) tomorrow evening. I will then stay the night in Rome and head to Montevarchi mid-day on Saturday. Next time I post I will be on the other side!
