10 photos from San Marino

Posted in: Photos, Top Ten

To follow up on yesterday’s ten facts about San Marino, I decided to add some visuals of our trip to the lovely little mountain town country. My apologies to those of you who dislike top ten lists, or have a phobia of the number ten, or sustained some traumatic injury as a child while learning base ten (which, if you are anything like me, involved those little orange blocks). I realize this is the second post in a row to feature that number so prominently (also, it is the 10th!) But I am jet-lagged, and having a bit of structure to my blog (in the form of finite, numeric lists) helps reign in my wandering mind, which so easily gets off-track.

Which reminds me: I could really go for some cake right now.

Anyhoodle, here’s ten photos from our visit to San Marino. And a special thanks to the ragtag band of folks who escaped the conference with us for a few precious hours to go sightseeing. You all rock.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to find some butterscotch krimpets.

  1. Snowy stairs.

    Yes, we climbed then. With minimal slipping, I might add.

  2. Nice vantage point.

    Geography isn't my strong suit, but I'm pretty sure we can see Russia from here.

  3. Great poster, or greatest poster EVER?

    I was completely gutted that we missed this by just a few days. I really wanted to see a giant floating cat.

  4. Itching for a (snowball) fight:

    Not pictured: the group of nuns and orphans they were pelting.

  5. Bar menu featuring – no joke – Duff beer.

    "Duff man is thrusting in the direction of the problem."

  6. Yawn. Another tower and more stunning views.

    Whatever. Seen it.

  7. Bad translation on a mechanical gate.

    I like to think of the "gate opening" as a notable event, like a movie premiere or the grand opening of a Bennigan's.

  8. Touring inside of one of the towers (which I think was also a prison. I wasn’t really paying attention, to be honest).

    I know I say this all the time, but still - Cutest. Escaped. Convict. EVER.

  9. Flyer found on our rental car.

    "Seriously. We never go out anymore. When was the last time you took me a sexy show?"

  10. Self-portrait with Rand.

    Ignore the melted snow on my shirt, which looks suspiciously like either spit or bird pooh, and concentrate on our fleeting youth and loveliness before they're gone.

P.S. – Stay tuned for tomorrow’s post, which I promise, will not include the number 10.

  • Okay, I'll admit: I really like how these came out. I need to get more adventurous with glazes, but I'm so digging this shape.
  • A sneak peek at the photoshoot that @hayleyyoungshotme did this morning at @majesticbaytheatres. We're going to be featured in an issue of Seattle Magazine early next year - about Seattle couples. Super excited. Details and more of shots of amazing hair as we get closer to the publication date.
  • Couldn't see what the barber was doing, but when he said "You want a design?" I replied, "HELL YES" and this happened. I'm delighted with the results.
  • Happy Halloween from the Joker and Harley Quinn, and to hell with the misogynistic manbabies out there.
  • First photo ever tagged of us on Facebook. Circa 12 years ago. Can we talk about how I've aged like an overripe piece of fruit left in the sun, but @randderuiter has only gotten hotter?
  • I call this look "I just ate a whole bunch of Violet Crumble and now I'm about to fall asleep from the sugar crash."
  • New personal slogan.
  • Do we want to leave Italy? No. Did we eat enough pasta to sustain us until next time? Also no.
  • The sky really is that blue. And the towers really are that slanted. #Bologna
