Continuing on my Walk-About rite of passage, join me on my ten day journey through Italy, Greece Belgium and Switzerland.

The 9th of October 2015, my feet land in Milan, Italy. Immediately the old world charm hits you, highlighted through its Renaissance style architecture and abundance of churches, reminding you of the rich, religious history of the city.

The event to end world hunger, set in front of the Duomo Cathedral, was touching and magical. Balloons tied to plates filled with birdseed were released in a wave of red and yellow. As they filled the skies, the birds descended to eat the now exposed birdseed. An ironic scene, I would soon reflect upon as my journeys to follow would make me realize if the food is anything to compare, even the birdseed here must be amazing.  Piazza Del Duomo MilanoPiazza Del Duomo Milano

One of Italy's most well known artists, Vacca, headlined a show at Piacenza that was a live music lovers dream. The crowd, alive with electricity, the hype from the artist palpable in the air. I had previously worked with him, shooting his album cover for 'Patience' for the Universal Music group in 2013 and seeing him in action was only confirmation of the talent his recorded music reflects.

The rich history of Athens seems carved into the very dust while one visits the Temple of Zeus and the Acropolis. one can imagine how in its glory it would have been a place fit for the gods on earth.

Never able to escape the reality of modern times, however, this city flipped my walkabout experience to include becoming a CNN verified and featured reporter when I took some shots of a protest for Turkey in Greece. [See CNN iReport]

The fame of Venice, Italy for its vino is not exaggerated. It's famous for a reason, a very delicious one. The delicate mixing of food and wine is an art perfected by a city which is art come to life. The floating city bursts with colors both visually and flavourfully, making one forget trivialities such as the panic one feels almost missing your train to visit said city.

Brussels, Belgium. Reality again rears its head with a protest at Brussels Central Station. The city views continue my rapture that only seems to grow with each European city I visit. [See CNN iReport]

Each one has its own beauty and Brussels is no different. My waistline regrets to inform you that I have firsthand experience that the waffle made famous here is renown, also, with good reason. Enough fluffy, crunchy, sweet, goodness.

The Swiss alps as seen from Lugano, Switzerland must be the most breathtaking site because this photographer cannot imagine any sight being more majestic and serene.
