The Trek from Paris to Nuoro, Italy

Some images from our train, boat and car ride to Nuoro, a small city in the middle of Sardinia, a big island off the cosat of Italy.

The journey down to Sardinia started with a trip to the Bercy train station, the very station where the famous steps are that you will see Andrew Reylonds destroy in the upcoming Stay Gold movie. The train was delayed by 50 minutes. That's not a good sign.

The compartment we got had an adjoining door that just busted open whenever creating awkward moments with the people in the next cabin. So I "McGuyvered" it shut. Later, Deana forgot to shut our front door all the way, and it flew open while I was laying nude on the bed. But it was so hot I didn't care. You can see my balls, they're nothing special.

This is us in our little oven cabin. South into Italy!

The huge ferry we boarded to get to Sardegna. Our train made it to Rome late, we had to catch an alternative train to Civittavecchia, the big ferry port, where we luckily caught the ferry we were supposed to.

We found a deserted area with a table and ate some cafeteria salad and fruit. The Mediterranean Sea was calm on our trip west to the island of Sardegna.

The boat ride was relaxing.

I may have had some food in my teeth.

There was a small pool and around it people were out in the sun getting roached.

The ship was overtly themed in a Looney Tunes fashion. A guy named Silvio was waiting with a sign that read "ED TEMPLETO" and he collected Deanna and I and drove us through a series of tunnels inland towards Nuoro.

so good!
ur fuckn living it ,ed.. well deserved dude!
reynolds? barcy station? i wonder which spot is that..if its huge, im betting andrew threw a frontside flick.
either way, anything from the boss is eye candy.
my all time looney tune faves has been daffy duck taz and the roadrunner.
speaking of testicles...
the other day my friend told me "feel my elbow!" and i did. it was pretty rough, dry and wrinkled, and he said "dude, you pretty much felt how my balls are when im cold"
yea, there aint anything special 'bout balls, yo.

is there going to be another one of those "win a trip to eds art show" contests. if there is I want to win it. Im only 1600 km, or 19 hours, from Sardinia. Gent was closer but i couldn't ruff it. I can't let the sock team down again... I have to represent on everyones behalf.

ed, you should get a show in Kassel. You just missed the Annual Fotobook Festival. A bunch of photo nerds were there, like Alec Soth.

Flashiest corpses.

All of this is very sudden, but oh so spectacular. Pictures are worth some words and stuff. Deanna, yellow in the train. Could be an album cover. Closeup of Ed's teeth. Sweet. All the weird little things that get thrown in your way while trying to get to your destination; that's the trip right there. I could be stereotypical and say "the journey is the trip" or something.

Interesting Ferry as well; "Moby". Their parent company Ahab went bankrupt. teehee

I really am waiting anxiously for Brainwash but also Stay Gold is cool too. both should be pretty cool. I'm thinking of getting a digital camera as I already use analog religiously. I don't know. Maybe that way I can enunciate my thoughts more clearly through spirit stealing device.

You could have just sat there Jake and le everyone see you through the broken door. Just be like " dude, your train is busted, and I want to be naked. Deal with it." or after sealing yourself off you could have hotter steamier sex since You're already fatigued by the heat. I bet a gnarly fart would stink way more, but you wouldn give a fuck and you'd just take it since it's too hot to get pissed at whoever ripped one.the photo of you guys after the one of your teeth, reminds me of the dude on the album cover of Bad Music for bad people

Oh, and that last tunnel reminds me of the one on San Fransisco. Templeto. Looks like the language barrier isn't phasing you.

Great travel times for sure.
Nothing like sweaty balls in sweaty train boxes.
You should have the door swinging open at various times with changed poses for passersby.

Daffy duck is the best looney tunes character. A while ago I got into a huge fight with my friend because he thought daffy duck was Donald duck and reverse. People need to watch more cartoons, I don't care how old you are it's good for you.

So, I might go to Italy soon with my cousins, but I'm not getting my hopes up.

I was at the skatepark today at theirs some kid thats like 16 and he won't move because he wants to play with his teck decks on the ramps. So I just ride right into him hoping he will move (kinda hoping he will move), so he does and threatens to kick my ass. What the fuck is up with that. Half the kids at the fucking skatepark aren't even doing anything.

So someones gonna build another skatepark behind a police station. Like anyones going there, everyone wants to get high.
