I’ve been lucky enough to spend the past five weeks with amazing people. I came into this not knowing anyone or anything about photography. I am lucky enough to have met these people and truly become good friends. Howard and Darcy taught us so much about how to take a good picture. The speakers we met were so interesting and enjoyable. It’s amazing to see what it takes to be successful in photography. A wonderful aspect of our study abroad was having Jim and Kathy join us. For our last luncheon today we went to a lovely Italian restaurant. The pizza was delectable and the company was wonderful. Dylan, Katie, Olivia, Erin and I are leaving for the airport in approximately 2 hours. We have to take a train from London to Gatwick which is about an hour away. Then we wait for our flight to Rome! This experience was the most amazing thing I have ever done. The past 5 weeks have been the best I have ever had. I can’t fathom leaving yet but it’s time to pack up and go. I will miss everyone dearly and it will be weird to only have 5 of us in Rome instead of 14. It’s been an interesting ride, can’t wait to see everyone in the states! Toodles!
