WELCOME TO MY TRAVEL BLOG
I have always enjoyed traveling, even if it meant sleeping in a tent when I was younger. I prefer hotels and cruise cabins now, but the motivation is the same...an adventure waiting to happen. Sometimes you will find me traveling with my husband and/or family. Sometimes I will travel alone, and sometimes I will travel with friends. I hope you find it entertaining to keep up to date with me as I explore the world around me. Warning...I like to take pictures of food so don't read if you're hungry. More adventures await...see ya soon...Amy.

Macedonia: Arrival Day
Four flights and a three hour drive later, we have finally arrived in Prilep, Macedonia. This is Danny’s third trip here and my second. Our purpose, other than seeing friends and family, is to join alongside our cousins in their missionary work here. This year we are staying in the downstairs one bedroom apartment of their home. Last year we came in late May and it was pretty warm. This year we are earlier and it’s cold here in Prilep and I think unseasonably so. The highs are in the 60’s and lows in the 40’s and they have had an unusual amount of rain. I actually enjoy that temperature range so the cold isn't bothering me at all. Kyle has several projects already on the “schedule” for us as well as home visits to line up. I say schedule loosely because Macedonian time is generally not scheduled time but rather a loose time schedule. Either way, we are really looking forward to our work here and also our fellowship with Kyle, Jackie and Daniel. Jackie made us a delicious chicken gumbo over wheat berries (instead of brown rice) which was wonderful. I’ve never eaten wheat berries before and just might be putting some in my suitcase to bring home. Sitting around the dinner table tonight catching up on life was a great ending to our traveling day(s). Tomorrow, Danny and Kyle start the day with an early morning project. Until tomorrow…
