2: This is the photographic journal of a trip to Italy by a group of extended family members on a quest to celebrate multiple anniversaries, birthdays and enjoy each other's company in a foreign land. A journey like this requires a fair amount of preparation, a little strategy, a whole bunch of frequent flier miles and a willingness to depend on an abundance of good karma. As part of the advance work, Beth and I determined that it was absolutely necessary to travel to Italy in advance to scout out locations that would give this gang a real taste of Tuscany and the Cinque Terre... tough duty
