“Another summer day has come and gone away, in either Paris or Rome and I wanna go home…”
Well, truth be told, when I was in Paris and Rome I didn’t feel that way. I was quite happy to be where I was and it’s hard to believe that it ever happened. It feels as if the things we did and saw, the different worlds we experienced never happened…like it was all a dream. But it wasn’t, I really did travel around Europe for two months, with a group of people I wouldn’t necessarily have chosen on my own, though it was partly due to the various personalities that our group worked so well…I wouldn’t have had it any other way.
I have never seen so much art in my life, and I may not be able to visit another museum or gallery for a couple of months lol. Oh, and thank you leaders…every time I go any where now can’t help but think “bus buddy and tent mate!” only to realize that neither my bus buddy or tent mate are here.
I’ve learned so much on this trip, about others, about myself…and I’m not really sure if I’ve even really broke the surface yet. I’ve met people and seen places and things that I never could have dreamed of…and it was amazing to see how God worked in and through us throughout our travels and experiences. In many ways it’s hard to describe a trip like this (though I’m happy to show pictures and tell stories to any who would like) I feel blessed to have been a part of it, and grateful to all those who worked so hard to make it a good trip.
So thank you, one and all…those on the trip, behind the scenes and those who were praying for us while we were gone.
now…if you’ll excuse me, I have a few more assignments to finish 🙂
