[August 21st] – I have had quite a lively summer since finishing the first year of my HND. I have visited Italy, stayed in Rome experienced most of the popular sights as well as some smaller ones, visited the famous colosseum and walked around the remains taking in all the history behind it, knowing that around 50,000 spectators would of once occupied the space around me; and in the years games were played inside it was estimated around 500,000 peoples live had been taken, and over a million wild animals. Also experiencing Italian cuisine and the art inside the city was another highlight of my trip which I took a lot of information from.
Visiting the Vatican was also an experience in itself. It was another world from what I had ever been used to, the sights, the smell, the people and the atmosphere was something that I had never felt before. Walking down the street down to St. Peters Basilica was an incredible sight.
Now for a slightly different travelling experience in my summer break; going on a rally with 60 other high performance cars, travelling from London to Paris, then Lyon and finally ending in Monaco. This was one of the best experiences of my life to share with two people who are like brothers to me. Cars and anything automotive is one of my biggest passions alongside my graphics and photography work, so I really like combining them as it gives me pleasure to work on all aspects of the work, from content, to design / page layout and finished outcome.
