Well, in just 2 days, I will depart for Turkey, Tajikistan and Ukraine. I know some of you have been hearing about this for quite awhile, but you know how much I love to travel and explore this wonderous world of ours.
This travel site is new for me, though I have been wanting to do one for quite sometime. It is wonderful! I think I finally found the interface I like the best, but I am still learning how to use it to the fullest potential.
One feature I love is that it shows a world map and plots out all the places one has visited. I put in some of my destinations just to try it out, but I have not put info of those destinations
I have journaled every single trip I have ever taken, and I'm so thankful to have done so. I have a shelf full of cool travel journals at home, and I hope to slowly add some of those entries, along with great places to see and things to do. I hope this helps people in their own travels.
So, this is my first public entry to all of you. I have been testing the email feature on here, and it doesn't seem to be super reliable or fast. However, I think whenever I add a new entry along my journey, it will send out an update. If you wish to delete, please do so. I don't want to add to the inundation of emails we all get on a daily basis!
The ultimate goal of this trip will be to meet up with our director and 4 occupational therapists in Ukraine and work in an orphanage. On the way, I hope to see some great other places and meet my friend, Chris, in Tajikistan. Istanbul will be on my own, and I just found out during my layover in NYC, I get to cross paths with a very dynamic soul from my past. Kat Hendrix was one of our students when I worked at UIndy in the mid 90's. She is now working her way to be a major player in the human rights activism arena. Did I say she is dynamic??
I would greatly appreciate prayers for each of you in whatever form you pray during this time. I look forward to sharing this with you as I explore and find out more about the world as a whole.
My love and friendship to each and every one!
