[My trip] was a great way to experience a new country. I was with people that I could relate to – and we learned to navigate the foreign culture together. I came away with memories that I will never forget as well as some really great friends.
Being a designer, I have always struggled with my drawing skills. It was very beneficial to take some time out from the computer and really work on my skills. In the end, I found an interesting way to blend my two interests for the final project. The travel that I did while abroad gave me a wider perspective on Italy, as well as gave me experience with navigation and travel skills.
