Is this really my life!? I had no idea that I had such an incredible adventure awaiting me.
This week we spent 3 days at my lovely school, and then some of the girls and I took a trip to Rome and Venice for the long weekend! Italy was crazy! In Rome we toured the Vatican and it was breath-taking. We saw lots of beautiful sculptures and paintings. We also got to see the Sistine Chapel! However, my favorite part of Rome was praying in St. Peter’s Basilica. That building was sensational! It is also the home of the famous pieta. To see these masterpieces in person was a dream-come true!
As wonderful as Rome was, I can’t stop thinking about Venice. We ate like kings. We rode a gondola. We walked alongside the Grand Canal. Beyond that, we spent our entire day relaxing and just enjoying Venice. It was perhaps the loveliest day I have ever had.
While I had a ball in Italy, I was happy to return to Barcelona to see my wonderful mentor and sixth graders. The students are so funny! They love that my name is Chelsea like the futbol team. One of them jokes with me by saying, “you have a game tomorrow! Are you ready?”
Today we wrote pen-pal letters to the fifth graders that I taught earlier this semester. It was a fun way for these students to practice their English, and it created an exciting cultural experience for everyone! I am looking forward to teaching geography, science, and music this week! I have some fun experiments planned.
Thank you for reading my blog! I hope you have a wonderful day!
