Where Have Your Travels Taken You?

Christy at Shake the Salt asked a random question today, "Where is the farthest you've traveled?" I thought this was a fun question and a way to learn something about each other that doesn't usually come up in conversation, so I decided to share my adventure!

The furthest I've traveled was to Israel and Jordan before I got married. I actually celebrated my birthday in Israel AND Jordan that year! I had already graduated college, but heard about a class that was traveling with a local Bible college and decided to go for it! I am SO glad I did. The class was over 3 weeks long and we traveled everywhere in Israel, north to south, east to west and even into Jordan for a few days. We visited archaeological sites and explored the land where God's people, the Israelites, and Jesus and his followers walked! It was an incredible experience that I would recommend to anyone who has a chance to go! Here is a picture of me floating in the Dead Sea (yes, you really do just walk in and start floating!) and riding on the back of a camel (The camel behind me was very crabby and I thought he was going to bite my behind!)

I kept a daily journal of where we went and what we saw, and when I got home I started a scrapbook of my journey using my journal, my notes and pictures from the 15-some-odd rolls of film I used (before digital!).

Sadly, I'm not finished with the scrapbook, and probably never will be! Here are a few pictures of pages I did finish. Click on them to enlarge.
