A leisurely Saturday

Our final day in Barcelona was a relaxing one.  We toured the beautiful Sagrada Familia Basilica, had a pizza lunch at Rossini Pizzeria and made one last stop for gelato!  Next, we walked to Port Vell and enjoyed strolling along the harbour, soaking up the warm sunshine.  We went out to Milk Bistro for a late night supper and then went back to our hotel room to pack.  By 3:30AM we were in a taxi to the airport, ready to begin the long journey back home.  It was sad to leave, but we are both very excited to see our families, friends and students!

The global forum has been a positive experience for us.  We've made many connections with people from around the world and had the opportunity to see people who we haven't seen in over a year.   Often we met people in person that we knew from social media interactions or Microsoft conference calls and it was great to have a face to face connection with these people.  Leaving the forum, I really believe in the value of the work we do as educators, school leaders and education stakeholders.  This conference has showcased positive changes going on around the world - we really are working towards improving education around the world!
