  1. MaryHelen, I wouldn’t call it blessed. I made the choice to lead a life where I had the opportunity to travel, anyone can make that choice. I don’t think blessings have anything to do with it 😉

  2. We agree with Aggie, this is an awesome mentor text for students (and for us!)
    Great way to reflect.

  3. There should be no complaining about Spain. I rode on the hump in the middle most of the time! Dancing on the beach was fun!

  4. Thank you for letting me travel your words with you here. I had to scroll a few times to get a feel for the whole thing. So many senses hit here. I liked, “Philipines is beautiful children becoming your friend.” but I have family from there so I’m impartial. And, “Switzerland is chocolate and mesmerizing mountain views” sounds heavenly.
