Kathy and I will be jetting away to Cairo, Egypt on Sunday night, May 11th, and plan to do a daily blog with as many pictures as we can cram onto this site. For the first two weeks we'll be visiting Egypt, Sinai, Jordan, and Israel. Then on May 25th we'll come back through Europe to visit Italy, France, and Switzerland before returning to Phoenix on June 5th. For all of our friends at Cactus Christian Fellowship this will be a picture tour through the places we have been reading about in our "Join the Journey on Route 66" program (reading through the 66 books of the Bible during 2014).
For the rest of you, just enjoy the scenery, sites, and the daily expressions of our feelings as we blab on about what we're doing and the significance of what we are seeing. For a brief look ahead......we'll take a visit inside the big pyramid of Giza, climb Mt. Sinai, tour the Rose-red desert city of Petra (in Jordan), sail on the Sea of Galilee (Israel), walk through the streets of Jerusalem, and visit many of the places made famous from the Old and New Testaments. And, since we love to hike, we'll be taking on some of the most beautiful (and sometimes challenging) trails in our favorite country, Switzerland (Kathy's ancestral home). Stay tuned.....!
