I went to Venice, Italy alone too. It was a great experience, yet one of the loneliest. I had fun seeing everything and going to museums, and seeing St. Mark’s square and everything, but at night, I was a little bored, being alone. It also rained all 5 days I was there. Except one day, it rained for a few hours, and then stopped, and I looked up at the church in St. Mark’s square, and there was a rainbow over it. It was so beautiful, I really felt like God put that rainbow there for me to cheer me up. It did, it brought a smile to my face! I did some shopping and more sight-seeing, it was fun.

Me, in Saint Mark’s Square with the birds.

Rialto Bridge (biggest bridge in Venice).

Me on the Bridge of Sighs.

My sister, Mikaela. She didn’t come with me, but I thought it was cool that we had the same picture!

God put that Rainbow there for me, because I was sad, hungry, tired, poor and homesick by this point!

It rained the ENTIRE time I was there…

One day, I went to Padova with a girl from my hostel. It is a town an hour from Venice. There was a lot to see, and we had a great time. I again ate a lot of Gelato… mmmm….

Then, I took a Ryanair flight back to Belgium, and came home.
