The unforgettable 2015 Italian summer

The unforgettable 2015 Italian summer

    
(The view of Urbania)

I used to travel a lot as a photojournalist, but it was the first time I travelled to one of the European countries as a student.

  
 (In Rome)

During the last half month in Italy, 25 schoolmates and I had a great time from Urbania, Venice, Florence to Rome.

We had a journey of learning the Italian language and culture. In Urbania I enjoyed the traditional Italian lifestyle; in Florence, I saw the architecture of David; in Rome, I made a wish in Trevi fountain… I was extremely moved by the Italian history and culture.

And most importantly, I have made many new friends during this trip.

Thanks for my truly centennial college giving me the once a lifetime opportunity. This trip opens a door for me to learn about European history and culture. And I have known how to live a meaningful life.
