Post Trip Overview

Now in Italy, after having travelled through more of the United Kingdom, France, Germany and Austria, my appreciation for home and Sheffield has grown. I now realize that I belong in a mid-size city, not a metropolis like London or Paris. It is a challenge to pull myself away from exploring the Dolomites outside my window to write this blog post but I’ll give it a go. It is fitting given the nature of the study I have undertaken that my last glimpses of Sheffield were of Park Hill looming over the train station. The focus of my group presentation was on public housing in the U.K. In London there are many examples of public housing models similar to Park Hill. It is a strange thing to notice on a holiday but I can’t help myself now. My friend (Aussie ex-pat) who I stayed with in London has never visited Sheffield and has contempt for the Northerners.

It is a shame about the technical issues with the presentations. Fortunately for my group, everything fell into place nicely and I am quite satisfied with the finished product, which featured historic videos of Sheffield found on an online archive database and a local soundtrack including The Arctic Monkeys. I enjoyed the interdisciplinary aspect of the subject and learning about a variety of historical figures including the architect Le Corbusier, the entrepreneur Henry Lever, the artist John Everett Millais and the all-rounder John Ruskin. The morning lectures enhanced my experience and understanding of the places we visited. It was obvious that visiting the United Kingdom was more than just a study tour or a holiday for many students, but rather a pilgrimage to their ancestral home. I commend the lecturers for their organisation of the trip and I will cherish my memories of Sheffield and the lifelong bonds with students formed there.

  3. Your post trip was awesome, I really like it you had visited so many countries and cities too! Actually, people prefer to go and spend their holiday in that city or country where each facility is present for them and easily avail without any problem. Ana most of the students prefer to study from these countries and take accredited life experience degree in their program. Now this time has more facility to everyone because they can easily start their academic education or state any course what they need in their field.

  10. As you look for a design to make your own or get ideas to help yourself understand the range of options, it should be helpful to think about whether or not you would like a single panel or double panels for your gate. A grademiners single panel is versatile in that it can be configured to open swinging outward or inward, quite common for a walkway or entrance. It can also be configured to slide sideways on wheels when built as an opening to a driveway.
