In May of this year, I can happily say that I checked off a bucket list item.
Back in February of this year, we randomly stumbled across a deal for two people to Milan, Italy for $800 roundtrip. Yes, $400 per person for a roundtrip flight from New York City to Milan.
Caitlin texted me during lunch about the deal jokingly, but throughout the afternoon both of started to wonder why not. We have the money. We have the time.
So that evening, talking through it, we said ‘what the hell’ and booked 14 days in Italy during May.
With family from Italy on my mom’s side, I have always wanted to go to Italy and the Colosseum has always been a bucket list item for me. So, this really was a trip of a lifetime.
Because this trip meant so much to me, I invested in a new camera and what follows are the pictures that came out. I did a ton of research for a new film camera because the shutter on my twin lens isn’t closing correctly and burning my photos.
I ended up finding a deal on a Contax T2 point-and-shoot in really good condition. It’s really an amazing camera because of the Carl Zeiss lens. I couldn’t be happier with the results and I highly recommend it if you’re looking for something.
