Our Daughter Divine and her oldest daughter, 11 year old Coco, went to Venice for spring break.
As the time to leave neared, DD was having some reservations, wondering if she had bitten off more than she could chew with such a big trip. But, she overcame her fears, which she has always been very good at, and went.
And they had a fantastic time.
She posted multiple times while they were there, but couldn’t add in the pictures until she returned home. So, she has now added the pictures, and it was fun to go back and look at them, as well as re-read her Venice posts. She always has an interesting, almost always funny take on things, even when they go bad.
Now that they are home, my guess is that DD will enjoy telling the story of their first day in Venice many times, even though at the time it was an awful experience!
(Note to Mothers: Probably not a good idea to see the movie Taken, as I did, right before your daughter and granddaughter go on a trip to Europe alone! In that movie, young women tourists are kidnapped and sold into white slavery! )
Thank you God for bringing them home safe.
