I am astounded that it is already 2019. The years certainly fly by faster and faster… which is exactly why I feel so compelled to live my best life every day!
My biggest dreams are all centered around traveling and living life to the fullest. There are certain things that people associate with living a full life that I will NEVER do. For example: sky diving, bungee jumping, or any other death defying acts that I cannot wrap my head around why anyone would want to do them.
But, drinking a perfect glass of wine while watching the sun set behind the Swiss Alps, or watching the moon rise out of the Mediterranean Sea from the balcony of a cruise ship… those are my idea of perfection!
If you started reading my blog when I travelled to Italy, you know how much I love sharing my travel escapades with all of you. And, I am excited to announce that it is time for more. I am heading to Israel in 8 days and I am planning to share each part of this journey with you too! From enjoying the healing qualities of the Dead Sea, to marvelling at the wonder of the Dessert, to sitting in the same place where our Lord shared the Last Supper and listening for God’s voice at the sight of His Son’s tomb.
To be completely honest, when my husband and I were first approached about traveling to Israel, I was nervous. Travel in the Middle East has NEVER been on my bucket list. But, I have had time to think about it and prepare for the trip. There is no other way to travel in the footsteps of Jesus Christ without visiting the land He walked on.
I’m excited about the trip now. I can’t wait to see all the places that I have read about in the Bible or pictured in my mind while listening to the readings at Mass. This will certainly be an experience to write about!
