Turkey, Tulum and Tuolumne

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.)
“And God said it was good.” This is what I re-learn each time I go to a new place where God made the terrain different. God’s people do their life differently than how we do it in Lincoln. There’s variety too in the remarkable people God has given us to share this planet with.
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?
