In Others’ Words: Travel
“The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only one page.” ~Saint Augustine
I’ve always thought that if I came into a large sum of money — I’m talking a never-could-have-imagined amount — I would travel. A lot.
Yes, I would give lots of it to ministries I believe in.
And then I would travel.
First place: I would go back to Venice with my husband and splurge on a gondola ride. We visited Venice years ago during our “military family” life, when the first three kiddos were little. We rode the water taxi. I remember my son Josh asked if we could live in Venice forever. I so wanted to say yes.
Second place: Australia. I don’t know why, but I’ve always wanted to visit the Australian Outback. It’s wild and romantic — at least in my mind. I want to discover the reality.
Third place: Israel. I’ve been to Israel once. My husband and I helped chaperone a team of teenagers on a ministry trip (our son was one of the teens.) At the time, I was reeling from the oh-so-unexpected news that I was a mom of 3 teenagers (I knew that) and I was also pregnant. Let’s just say my memories of Israel are shrouded in all day morning sickness.
In Your Words: The world is a book … how would you fill the pages? Or, if you’ve traveled to some favorite places already, I’d love to hear about that too!
