In the next few weeks, I’ll be on the road traveling. I will bring my laptop with me but there is no guarantee that I’ll have wifi in any of my sojourn. In any case, I will do my best to blog wherever I am, even if I have to look for an internet cafe!

My first stop will be the Philippines (via Hong Kong) where I will be celebrating my birthday (Happy Birthday to Me!). It will be a significant one and I’m happy to spend it with family. However way we celebrate, I’m just glad to be somewhere warm and welcomed.


My next stop will be Turkey where I’ll be joining a tour to walk along the Footsteps of Paul. I have always been fascinated by Islam. What better place to visit than Turkey (via Shanghai)? I have to admit that I don’t know much about this country. I’m already reading up on history, culture, food, etc. I am sooo looking forward to finally getting there!


After a few days in Turkey, our tour group heads to Greece. I’ve read a lot about this country — literature, history books, media, pop culture. Though the focus of the trip is on the 1st century Christian world, I am intrigued to learn more about this country’s ancient history. I will definitely be doing a lot of reading on the plane.


Finally, my last stop takes me to Thailand. Here, I hope to shed the winter clothes and enjoy the sun. I plan to be here at least a week so I’m probably going to make myself comfortable. What I’m looking forward to is lots and lots of Thai food!

Chiang Mai

Advanced Happy Chinese New Year!
