I don’t know if travel can be considered a “call” or not. I do know that I am blessed and lucky to have seen the places I have seen this year.
- My tour group was to have gone to Taksim Park in Istanbul the day after Turkish citizens began protesting the plan to raze the Istanbul park and replace it with a mall and an historic replica army barracks.
- Tuolumne Meadows is part of Yosemite National Park. With our friends, the Opitz family from Germany, we made a 4900 mile road trip from Lincoln, Nebraska, to the west coast and back and had a ton of bucket list caliber experiences.
- Tulum is a Mayan ruin that is fascinating but not newsworthy. (Other than our car rental experience, which will have to wait for another blog.)
In the past year I swam in the Gulf of Mexico, sailed on the Bosporus and waded in the Merced River. Lucky me. Blessed me. The important part is to be mindful.
Reflection Question: Where did you travel this summer? What did you learn?
