My family and I visited famous cities in Italy, Greece, and Switzerland: Athens, Pisa, and more! This trip offered us the chance to discover the ancient sites of Greece, Roman arches in Italy, and the ICE high-speed trains in Switzerland. I also developed a newfound antipathy for sparkling water.
This was the first opportunity I got to take my own photos with the DSLR camera my dad entrusted me with. My memory was always dreadful, so being given the camera was a godsend, making it possible for me to immortalize the events of my life. Since I literally just got the DSLR camera, most of my early photos of Europe were quite ghastly. I was so used to camera phones that I was astonished to find so many minuscule buttons on the camera. But it was my curiosity to find out what each button did that kept me taking pictures throughout the journey in Europe. And I’m still learning today what those buttons do.
