Well, it’s been quite a while since I have traveled….totally solo, that is. My longest solo trip is to go see my sister regularly to keep my great cuts, colors, curls or lashes. It’s about a 2 hours (1.5 for me) one way every 4-6 weeks, so not that big of a deal. This one is going to take a little more….
One LONGGGGG day…..
It’s going to be one longgggg day. I think my travel time is somewhere around 24 hours, just airport time. I feel the day will be about 36 hours from pillow to pillow. I do not count cat naps on a plane as “rest”. I am so excited I can hardly stand it!!! I will be headed back to Israel. I have felt called back the very moment that we left the ground in Tel Aviv in November. I will be taking groups back in the future, so I feel like I want to go do some boots on the ground, prowling around to see if I can find what the Lord would want me to share when the time comes to head back there with others. I love what I get to bring back here from the journey, also. I feel that we, as Christians in the West, are somehow disconnected from our real roots. We act like “all of that”…what we read about is just that…a story in a book, not a reality. BUT the Bible REALLY is real & it is ALL really there. They are finding / digging up more of it every single day.
Travel to blog
The trip will also be for me to actually open up the travel in real time part of my blog / vlog. I began to think about what “tools” I would need to be able to provide the shots and videos that I will want to share with all of you. Therefore, guess what I get to do??? I get to do what I do best SHOP!!! This brings out that nerd girl that loves to try some gadgets that I feel can further my skills, hahaha. Remember, I am a work in progress, please don’t expect perfection from me, EVER. I will promise to try hard, but this mouth and well, skills are getting better, (grammar….not so much). But I have confidence that that will improve too. If it doesn’t, maybe one day I will be able to have a VA or editor.
What shall I get hummmm…..
Back to my nerd factor: I am carrying a nice Canon Camera and a tripod that I’ve had for years. But I want options for the cellphone, on days I don’t want to haul all of that, when I’m out and about. I may feel and handle it totally different once I am there and decide what my agenda will actually be. I have give Yeshua a heads up that He is actually calling the shots. I am His – will be in His hometown and adopted village. I will stomp around His Holy city for a while, too. I can’t wait for Him to expose me to the sights that all see, but with the eyes of a child who wants to see with a vision like His.
Share the Soul
I want to capture moments to share the soul of the cities, the country, the seas and the people of Israel with you. Who knows maybe, just maybe you will be ready to venture over there after this! You can then have your own experience with the most ancient location in the world, at least that has been documented. If you happen to be a praying person, I can sure use all that you wanna send up for my safety and blessings! Thank you! Shalom & Pray for the Peace of Israel <3
Lean in & Travel Fearlessly,
