everyone was STOKED to be in italy! after we got everything in the van, max led us on our almost 2 hour journey to our hotel in spoleto, umbria.

what wasn’t known to the group is that this “hotel”, eremo delle grazie, was a former hermitage - where hermits would go up in the mountain and, well, hermit. :) it’s got to be at least 600 years old. all the “cells” have been turned into and renovated into modern rooms for guests. it’s really quite cool. here’s a few LATE NIGHT snaps of our room before it got unloaded upon and has been called home for the past 3 days.. :) 20101030_IT-4381.jpg
