Pompeii & Mt. Vesuvius


Pompeii was such a crazy experience for me. I have never seen something like this in all my travels. I don't know much about this city (besides the obvious, of course), but I found it very exciting as well as heartbreaking.
Seeing those people and animals frozen to stone made me feel a little emotional. When I learn about history like this in school I don't think much of it. I just see it as a lesson on the exam and a place I will probably never go to. But having gone to Pompeii and Vesuvius has completely changed how I look at these places. The best way to learn the history of a country is to honestly to go to those places and walk on the same paths where history took place.
It makes me wonder why in American school we only have the option to go to a different country for a field trip in our language classes. I really believe history classes should also go on international trips. It will make students retain information in a much deeper way. 





This photo was taken on the hike up to the top of Mt. Vesuvius


Apparently I was risking my life for this picture. My friends and I hopped the fence around the volcano to take better pictures. See that opening in the photo above? Yeah, that is the inside of the volcano. Thank God I didn't slip and fall into the volcano! Not sure if I would have slide all the way into lava or if it is enclosed with rocks and ash, but i'm glad I didn't find out.

P.S. I'm always posting photos from my travels on Tumblr and Instagram. Check it out if you love photography!

Cinque Terra



Cinque Terra was absolutely adorable. Such a cute, fun place to see and take pictures of. It's not necessarily exciting like Las Vegas or Rome, where there is always exciting things happening. But it is a great weekend destination to take photos and relax.
I wasn't able to go to all five cities because I was only there one day. So I guess Cinque Terra was more like Quattro Terra for me.
I love how every little city is a bit different from the other. In one city you can sit on the beach and drink a cocktail, and in the next city you can hike up a hill. But all the towns were cute and great for taking pictures.
