Well today was the day I officially graduated from WKU. Even though I wasn't there physically, I am proud to say that I made it through my four years of college and graduated with a perfect 4.0 GPA. Because of this, I was honored as a scholar of the college of education and graduated summa cum laude. It was sad not to be there, but so so exciting to be traveling Europe with my mom! Today we left Spain and arrived in Venice, Italy. It was weird to leave Barcelona after spending the past four weeks there. The city had become my home away from home. Despite all of this, Venice is beautiful! Nothing can compare to a city built on water. It has been different seeing how early the city closes down. In Spain, dinner wasn't until close to 10:00 at night. Here, all of the stores and restaurants were closing at 8:00! It is a change for sure! We were able to walk around a lot of the city tonight and explore the little Italian alleys. I also had my first Italian meal (lasagna)!!! I am excited to see more tomorrow!
