Verona






Verona was beautiful. A little too beautiful haha. The streets are paved with polished marble, and I felt like I was walking through a mall. We went and saw Juliets balcony, and there were "I love you"s all over the walls and scattered on the ground, it was very cool to see.

Venice .2



















Kerry, Katie, Andre and I got lost in the ally ways of Venice, and it was really fantastic. We found ourselves walking into dead ends a lot, as most of the walks ended in stairs that went straight into the water. We only had a few hours there, since our plane was delayed, our bus driver didn't even know how to turn the air conditioning on, and we took a tug boat into the city, but I am so glad I got to see it. It's beautiful and it's lopsided.

So we went back to our hotel, and I got to know my two amazing roomies, Esther and Liz. We went for a walk and found the beach, it was absolutely beautiful and the water was warm. When we went back to our room we sat on our balcony and watched the sky get dark and all of a sudden there were fireworks everywhere, coming from Venice. This was the most amazing day of my life, save those spent with my family.

Venice .1











It has always been a life goal of mine to go to Venice, I thought for sure that I would accidentally lose my group and never, EVER leave. But when I got there I realized that it was everything I hoped it'd be, plus a couple things I hoped it wasn't. You can hardly walk for all the tourists, and I need to go back and see the actual Venice before I stay there for good, because a beautiful city is no good if you can't see it through all the fanny packs.

New York










We actually were not supposed to be there, but it happened anyway, so we rolled with it. These are a few of my favorite shots. New York is definately a black and white city. It just is.
