The Colosseum, Rome

“Being to the Colosseum in Rome was a breath taking moment of my life. For the first time ever, I was at a place where I had already understood the history, and seen countless times before, although never in person. Walking in through the stone arcs was an experience unlike any other, akin to your first time riding a bike, or your first trip on your own. This day was a day of clouds, and drizzle, which is what i am used to as I am from the foggiest capital city in the world (St. John’s) ┬ábut to me, it was a day unlike any other. My mind still holds the taste of the air and the the sound of the crowds of people, enjoying the same monument that I was.”

Lost in Venice, Italy

“Me, my friend Matt, and Nick all decided to break away from the group due to the fact we had 5 hours of free time. After wondering around for about a half hour, we stopped into a pub to grab a drink, and try that oh so famous Italian pizza. Unfortunately for all three of us, we we’re not feeling the best from all the travel the night before, so we could only eat half of our cheese pizzas, so we ended up getting another drink each. After we payed, we decided to just get as lost as we can, because Venice is only so big, and you can only walk so far on this small island. We ended up getting lost for hours, which led to me snapping some of the best pictures of my entire photography career. This is a photo of one of the many squares in Venice, from the balcony of one of the museums.”
