My study abroad program in Brighton is sadly over, which means my adventures in Europe are over…for now. I’m vowing to return to Brighton to see the things some of my peers got to see–such as the countryside & Sussex castle–that I didn’t get to see. Although London was my favorite city to visit on the weekends, living in Brighton for 8 weeks felt like a home away from home. I never wanted to leave! Still in denial that I’m back in the States & that it’s all over *cries*.
Layout update no one cares about other than me: Extended the banner, added new pictures, extended the content area. Decided that pictures henceforth these albums shall be 780 by 517 pixels. Should’ve done this before I went to Europe though…oh well. Still have the originals for all the photos.
Our weekend trip into Italy started with Venice on Friday, followed by Rome from Saturday to Monday.
Delicious food everywhere! Although Venice had better food than Rome, the food was still fantastic. I’ve yet to find an Italian restaurant in the States that can surpass the food in Italy.
We climbed the 500+ stairs up to the top of Vatican city. The view from the Piazza San Pietro was absolutely beautiful, which is why I spammed the heck out of my shutter button. Pictures really don’t do it justice. Although if anyone is planning on visiting, keep in mind that bare shoulders & above knee length dresses/shorts are not permitted. You are required to cover up. Just because the Prime Minister is into Bunga Bunga parties & prostitutes doesn’t mean you can waltz into the church showin’ off all your shoulder/leg skin…even if it is 34ºC.
Pretty much a, “satisfy your meal goals” day.
Weekend trip into London for the Olympics!
We did a lot on Saturday, but I’m getting really exhausted (#photojournalproblems) posting these pictures, so you can just view the album for the whole thing. Olivia informed me of the correct pronunciation & spelling of these French treats girls are obsessed with: mack-uh-ron & m-a-c-a-r-o-n. Macaroons are those coconut mounds. THE MORE YOU KNOW!
My Anthropology of the Body class went into town for our weekly fieldwork assignment. Our professor, Barbara, led us to a pub called the Saint James, where she bought us a round of shots of Tuaca. We then walked to the pier, into an old arcade (where some of us got our palms read), & then went to eat. Out of all the pictures I’ve uploaded from my travels thus far, this album & the album after it are some of my favorites. My 35mm is absolutely fantastic.
The Mock Turtle
Adam, Genelli, Yia, & I went to have tea & supper at the Mock Turtle. The pastries were so scrumptious & the cream tea really hit the spot.
More albums to follow, always. My friend Rion told me to take a ton of pictures because he needs a new desktop wallpaper. Feel free to tell me which pictures you think would make a great wallpaper & I’ll upload them onto Aesthetic Intoxication for public usage.
