And the adventure begins!!
This morning, I said goodbye to my family and left on a plane headed for Italy and Israel for the next 10 days. I’m so honored to get to spend this time learning, experiencing, and soaking up the richness of story — God’s story — woven throughout history with the wonderful folks from The Museum of the Bible.
As you know, it’s my Year of Rest, which means I’m saying “no” to almost all opportunities, but this was one that Jesse especially felt strongly I should say “yes” to. So even though it’s a really long time for me to be gone from my family, we both felt that it was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that I couldn’t turn down.
I’ve never been to Europe or Asia before, so I’m really stoked to get to go to two new continents! And I can wait to “bring you all along” and share pictures and a little peek into what I’m experiencing and learning.
I’m going to be posting daily updates on Instagram (click here to follow me there, if you’re not already) and I plan to post a few updates here on the blog about my trip, as well as possibly Periscope a few times, too (if I can get strong enough wifi!)
In case you’re wondering, my team will be running the blog like normal with deals, etc. while I’m gone. I also have some posts pre-written on various topics that we’ll be sharing, in addition to some updates from my trip!
So even though I won’t be around here as much in the comments — except for once or twice a day when I’m able to get online — you can still expect to all the usual great posts and deals and guest posts here and on social media!
Have you ever been to Italy or Israel? Any must-see attractions or things you would recommend I make a priority if I have free time while I’m there?
P.S. I was SUPER pumped that I managed to pack for 10 days in a carry-on. I’ll have to do a post on that, if it works out and isn’t a flop. (As in, if I don’t royally wish I had packed a lot more things!)
P.P.S. I’ve been reading the book, Presence, on the plane and so far, it’s SO good! Have you read it?
