This image was taken in Snowdonia in Wales and is possibly my favorite picture from my time abroad. Although I studied in Leicester, England, I took a trip out to Wales with some friends and we decided to do a hike in Snowdonia. Winds were blowing furiously and the ground got marshier as we went, but the views were spectacular and the isolation from technology and industry was indescribable. My friend took this photo of me on my camera while I wasn’t paying attention and I love that it captured a moment of peace in the midst of all of the chaos of being abroad in a completely foreign place.
