Hello friends! 

2 months left..

May 10, 2016

I have a little less than 2 months left here in Austria. I think about going home and I get sad and happy at the same time. One, because I am going to miss the friends and family I have come to know and love. And secondly I will get to see my friends and family that I haven’t seen in a while. I have made a bucket list for the things I want to do and see before my time is up because I know the end will sneak up on me very quickly. I plan on getting everything on th list done so I can go home with no regrets.

For a little while now, photography was something I was interested in doing. I always loved taking photos whenever I travel or experience something new. Taking a picture is saving a memory.

I recently bought myself a DSLR camera, and in the summer I’m planning on taking a photography course to help further myself.
