It's Graduation Time!

My daughter graduated two weeks ago.  She can now write 'B.Tour' (Bachelor of Tourism) after her name.  I'm so proud of her.  It was a three-year full-time degree.


  1. Is the older man with the spectacles your daughter's "beau"? I must say he has got a very strange dress sense - especially that golden tassle on his bonnet. Must have cut it from his grandma's curtains!
    Joking apart BIG CONGRATULATIONS to Miss N and a lovely proud moment for you too.

  2. Congratulations for all her hard work :)

  3. I have never heard of a Bachelor of Tourism but I'm sure there are a lot of things in this world I have never heard of..

    Congratulations to the new graduate, and may she find a well-paying job very soon!

  4. A belated, but hearty, congratulations to daughter (N?)
    I also have never heard of a Bachelor of Tourism, but had it been around when I was university age (or even a little beyond, since I did take a course in tourism to work in a travel agency some years back) I would definitely have been there.
    I've also never seen balloons on a stick at a uni grad before!!

  5. Thanks for your kind comments everyone.

  6. Bachelor in Tourism so applicable to NZ. Congratulations!
