Around the World in 180 Days
On September 15, 2019, we boarded a plane to Dublin, embarking on a (hopefully) round-the-world journey of unknown length and uncertain destinations. Six months, sixteen countries and twenty-six flights later, we arrived back to a cold and locked-down life in Connecticut. In between, the world was beautiful! We had been planning and praying for this trip for years, and it came at a perfect time: with our kids old enough to carry their own luggage, but young enough to get child discounts on tickets and accommodations; and with a world still open and unmasked. Our intention was to world school, and we discovered much of our curriculum along the way. We explored medieval Irish castles and massive Vietnamese caves; we met old friends in new places and found new friends along the way; and we had the privilege to work alongside amazing people and organizations whose lives and missions are to lift and serve others. The images below represent just a few of the many many moments that we hold with wonder and gratitude. For our boys, we hope that these experiences leave imprints in their hearts that inform their future paths. And for us, we hope that, in sharing a bit of our story, you may see the light of the author of our lives.“For in His light, we see light.” Time marches on, life and landscapes change, memories fade, but by God’s grace and love, moments are not lost.
