FC: Henry's Scrapbook | A Farewell To Arms Carl Krause Mr. Gabriele IRB
1: Dear reader, My name is Lieutenant Frederic Henry. I went through many different experiences during the war. I felt it was necessary to make a scrapbook so my story would not be lost. Although my time with Catherine was short, I want to remember every moment of it. It is unfortunate Catherine and I had to spend our time together during such a terrible period but I will cherish these moments forever. Frederic Henry
2: a | The Great War | I drove this ambulance car for the Italian Army in World War 1 | This is the beautiful Catherine, my love at first sight. That is one of the English patients who caught shrapnel in the leg
3: Here is my knee after we were bombed. Its a shame the other drivers never made it out. I'll never forget you guys, Passini and Gordini | This is the terrible Miss Van Campen. She was the superintendent of the Milan Hospital. She accused me of purposefully getting sick to leave the army. She blamed the Jaundice on my alcoholism. | Miss Catherine Barkley | This is what my eyes looked like after I got Jaundice,
4: This was my best friend during the war. His name was Rinaldi. He also drove ambulances. Although he could be crude and inappropriate, he was a great guy to have by my side | This was a German unit in the war. When they broke the Italian line many of us Italians were very scared, the war was at a peak | This was quite a gruesome war for many of us. A lot of people died . it was hard to cope with what was going on so drinking was extremely common. | The Italian Army was very disorganized and not well run. Soldiers made unjust accusations of me so i had no other choice but to run away
5: This is the train that I stowed away on to leave the war. I had had enough with deaths and corruption. I no longer felt a desire or knew a reason to fight, so I left to find the one thing i cared about, Catherine. | Finally reuniting with Catherine was one of the greatest moments of my life. I had been thinking about her the whole time i was in the war and the only thing I wanted to do before i died was see her one more time. It was like a dream come true
6: When the army came after me for my absence Catherine and I fled to Switzerland. It was there that Catherine went into labor. It was a long difficult process but the baby did not make it, nor did Catherine. This day changed my life forever.
7: Lessons I Have Learned | Alcohol really messed up my life during the war. It made me sick with Jaundice and got me into a lot of trouble like when I vomited on the train. I had an issue but didn't really realize it because every one was drinking.
8: on top of | the world | seeing the city from above
9: Took us over 20 tries to get this photo, but we finally got it!
12: We enjoyed our trip amidst the rain, fog and cold windy days. We did a lot of walking and travelled long distances with our heavy backpacks... and loved it.
14: There was more than one occasion where we had to be resourceful and live on the streets because we missed a train or couldnt find a hostel.
15: brian | kristina | megan | jon
17: Backpacking took us to many beautiful verdant places. Our granola bars kept u alive during long walks.
18: Gepetto's Shop
19: There were many street artists who were very talented. Too bad our backpacks had no space for artwork.
20: being silly
21: ...and sometimes bad.
23: Eating gelato, meeting strangers, living in hostels, walking along coastlines, sleeping on trains, going to festivals, eating authentic foods, learning transportation systems, buying groceries; It was all a great experience, despite the rainy days, getting lost, and taking trains in wrong directions. Immersing in different cultures taught us a lot and opened our eyes to a little bit more of the world around us.
