The location of the photo on the second shirt released last week should be fairly obvious.  It was taken in Venice, Italy, also known as “The Windy City.”  

These gondolas are docked directly in front of the Doge's Palace, built nearly 700 years ago. Those of you who study art history will know that Venice is largely recognized as the home of the Renaissance, and although you can’t see in this photo, directly behind me when I took it was a man selling t-shirts featuring Bart Simpson imploring the viewer to, “Don’t have a cow, man.”  

While in Venice, we took a boat over to the island of Murano, where we got to blow glass with one of the masters of the craft. Truly, glass blowing is an art, requiring a lifetime to perfect.  

Speaking of art, Venice is home to a Guggenheim Museum, which contains one of the most important collections of modern art ever assembled. Highly recommended.

Also, a nice group of fans waited outside our hotel and sang All The Small Things at me when I left for dinner.

Welcome to the Adventure Series of shirts, many more to come in the future.



Hi Mark,
we were at the Guggenheim with you.
It was fun to have both Picasso and Mark Hoppus in the same room.
