Photo of the Day: Death by Lemoncello

by Sarah

Everything valuable I own, spread out on the Naples train station bench. A pool of Lemoncello at my feet.

My Macbook is dead.  Murdered by the gooey, sugar- and alcohol-infused lemon zest drink Lemoncello.   My entire trip I have feared losing my computer.  I like to write,  edit videos, pictures, etc while I am traveling between destinations, not while I am there.    And as I teach myself to blog, I rely heavily on iMovie, iPhoto and other ingenious Apple-created software.

It would die in Naples.  Our entire trip Perrin and I have heard about how rundown and grimy Naples is.  Everyone warned us to hold our valuables close and beware of the gypsies.   Of course as I stepped off the train I felt splashes on my foot and realized my FULL bottle of Lemoncello – famed in the South where I had been – was relieving itsself!   Instead of zipping up my bag tightly, as I had been instructed, I frantically emptied a good $1,500 worth of electronics onto the bench next to the train.   Miracuously my Droid survived (props to Motorola),  but my computer was gone.  I was left standing – lip out in full pout – in a yellow puddle that looked identical to piss.

About sistersbailey

We are Perrin and Sarah Bailey, collectively known as “The Sisters Bailey”. The moniker was born out of a crazy weekend at the 2009 New Orleans Jazz Fest and it was the first time we had ever been referred to as one unit. We grew up in Alexandria, VA together and then separated for college - Perrin to The University of Pennsylvania and Sarah to Northwestern University – and somehow landed together in New York after graduation. It was in the midst of the hustle of Manhattan that we became friends for the first time in years. Somehow we landed jobs in the same industry - Sarah worked in marketing at HBO and Perrin managed creative digital promotions for her media agency’s main client, Disney - just three blocks from one another. One day we decided to leave our jobs, sell our belongings and travel abroad with a backpack and a collective savings of $10K. The stories of our continuing adventures and those of other fearless travelers are here to inspire you.
