Summer of travel for me (Micki)
It started off with a trip to Hawaii with the Hubby.
I took my camera with me because I was following on to Austin to take pictures for a friend (their engagement pictures). I don't normally travel with my equipment as I'm fine with taking my little point and shoot.
The waves on the North Shore were just fabulous!
Waikiki was just a DREAM!
Oh to think I lived in Hawaii for Four Years... It was just wonderful to be there for a week and enjoy this every night.
Then I was off to Austin to enjoy my mom and friends. YEAH!
Here are some of the pictures I took of my friends :) Aren't they just adorable!
I then got to go home and rest for a bit (after those three weeks of having fun) and then get ready for a week in Kentucky with the Youth on a Mission trip (camping). It was an amazing time filled with Praise and Worship at a homeless shelter (first picture) to finding out how to "help communicate" with each other on the rope course (second picture).
I was amazed at how inspirational these kids were (most of them were 14-15 year olds). They jumped right in playing with the kids at the boys and girls club and had no problem weeding and doing whatever was asked of them. I was humbled by so many things that happened the week I was in Kentucky and found Joy in many people that week where I didn't know I could find it.
I was sad to almost come home but thrilled I was going to get to come sleep in my bed (tents are a bit rough). I was also looking forward to my next adventure GERMANY. My mother-in-law who lived there for over 14 years and I took a trip to go visit friends and just had a great time. I only took my little Fuji point and shoot camera (because it is so much easier and safer).
The food was just overwhelmingly good! This was from a Turkish place!
YUMMY!!! The deserts! oh so YUMMY!
The buildings were just stunning! This of course is just a normal building you see everyday right? HA
We got to go to Belgium to pick up my Nephew and this was the Train Station. WOW!
