Naples, Italy

Although I am finally home I figured I needed to write up a conclusion.
Sat and sun were very chill days, was cloudy so we just went around town getting last min things. Sunday I couldn't sleep so went for a jog out to breakfast. Had a cappuccino and choc croissant which we're perfect! Then later walked along the water and had my favorite gelato before watching the Italy vs Spain game with my housemates. After that we met up with some friends for a final dinner which,although it was fun, I didn't get home till 1:30am. Was very emotional saying good bye to them some even wrote me little letters that were so touching, I am really going to miss them. Living that close for so long spending most of your waking hours together, you really get bonded. Two hours later I woke up to head for my plane and headed back to the great state of Washington.
I gotta say being in the airport, even being back here I still can't believe
this all happened. Sometimes I just think did I dream that, was I really in Italy? Thankfully it was a reality, I do know how to speak Italian, I did play in big games, I did meet Italian family members, and most importantly I conquered a dream! Although it wasn't easy, I came across many obstacles, people saying "playing there is impossible" and that meeting family would be too difficult. But, a little determination, hardwork, and the amazing support from my family, I did it all! I am so grateful for all the amazing people and friends I made along the way, the amazing foods I got to taste and the incredible places I got to see! Italy, along with all the other places I have been, has taught me so many things. Through all the ups and downs there was always a lesson and a growth to be made, and thankfully it all ended positively. I couldn't have asked for a better season to call my last.
That old saying of "never give up on your dreams" really has new meaning. Because once you accomplish them you really feel like you can do anything. "The harder the conflict the greater the victory will be" -Thomas Paine
cant wait to see what the next stage of life has to bring!
so long for now and thanks for following!
