Friday Fun: Travel

Screen Shot 2014-04-16 at 7.41.17 AM

The past few weeks have been a whirlwind of new places, faces, and tastes. There is something so eye-opening and refreshing about experiencing a new place. A breath of fresh air. From learning about cultures to trying new foods, you are forced to look beyond typical, every-day life. Below are some snapshots of the wonderful, hard-working women I met and tasty foods I tried during my time in Vietnam.

To Suzanne's way of thinking, you can't take life too seriously when a puppy is running through your house with someone's underwear in its mouth.


  1. I would like to travel back to Germany. I lived there for almost 2 years when I was an 18 yr. old newlywed, married to an Army man. I would appreciate it a lot more now that I’m older. I do remember the delicious food!

  2. MS Barb Dawson says:

    I recommend Greece! There is a rich heritage in art, religion, and music there!

  3. Connie Saunders says:

    My choice of country would be Ireland but I also would like to see the Grand Canyon. Thanks for another great giveaway!

    Enjoyed your pictures. One of my dreams was to travel to Ireland and I have plans to be there this summer, and yes, I am excited.

  7. Jennifer I says:

    I would want to spend more time at Sanibel and Captiva Islands in Florida. Beautiful sand, sunsets and shells. I could spend days shelling on those beaches.

  8. June Aemstrong says:

    I would recommend you visit both the Isle of Skye and the Orkney Islands. Very tranquil, beautiful, empty beaches, steeped in history.

    I would like to see St Kilda. Very sad story of the hardships of life there, before everyone was evacuated from the island in 1930. I would like to pay my respects to those who have gone before.

  9. Florence Mims says:

    I would like to see Ireland.

  10. derek jennings says:

    I’d like to visit australia. The nature there looks beautiful ,the marsupials,and landmarks such as Ayers rock,the great barrier reef would be cool to see…Sydney would be amazing to see!

  11. Mary B says:

    Acadia Maine – I like the USA

  12. Sharon says:

    Been to Ireland in 1996. I want to go back badly!! Then on to Scotland and England!

  13. Virginia Rush says:

    I recommend France…Paris…Lourdes, that small town with it’s giant church and waters were awesome.

  14. Chris Meyer says:

    I recommend Australia, New Zealand and Fiji. I did a month long trip~loved the Great Ocean Road! Loved horseback riding on the beach in New Zealand! I want to go back!
    I would like to spend some time in Italy researching my roots!

  15. Lucy Nix says:

    Would love to see Rome, Italy again, been 35 years ago in college. Loved the Vatican and all the Roman ruins.

  16. Janet Estridge says:

    In November of 2013 I went to Hong Kong, China for two weeks to visit with friends. I would go again in a heartbeat. I’m not looking forward to being on a plane for 15 hours but how else will you get there?

  17. Marcia G says:

    We have this yearning to visit Iceland(even though it’s cold there)! Seeing pictures of it makes it a gotta visit destination thus added to our bucket list.

  18. Debbie Rhoades says:

    Ireland and Scotland!

  19. sharon says:

    Italy. So historic, romantic, fascinating and incomparable in everyway.

  20. Marlene McRoberts says:

    Highly recommend Scotland. Best vacation we have ever had. Felt at home in the highlands!

  21. Dawn Kleinsasser says:

    I would travel back to Brazil if given the chance. We spent 5 days there back in 2006, and it was such an amazing trip. I was amazed by the people. I will never forget the little girl with the huge eyes that took my hand. She was selling beads with her father on the street. If only I could have taken her home with me…

  22. Linda McFarland says:

    In the United States I would love to visit Maine, out of the country would be Ireland! I’m sure the scenery is awesome…Linda

  23. Cris-Annette Nicholas says:

    My husband and I are hoping to go on a trip to Dublin Ireland for our 10th Anniversary (May 8th), although it would be at a later date. I have also always wanted to visit Australia. I have been to Great Britain (England and Wales) on Missions Trips in College, as well as to Ecuador and Haiti, all of which are lovely countries in their own unique and rich cultures. Truth be told, if I had the money and time, I would be as
    blessed as the day is long to travel the world to taste and embrace each and every culture and ethnicity that our Heavenly Father lovingly made and minister to each one along the way. 🙂

  24. Vicky D says:

    I would like to go to Australia. Seems like such a pretty place with such a variety of people and places to see. I also would like to go to Israel.

  25. nancy jo horton says:

    My husband was in the Navy stationed in Japan & I was with him for 18mon. We had a son born there. I would like to go back to see the area of where we lived. Enjoy reading your books.

  26. Lisa Garrity says:

    I think that Egypt is a must-see especially for anyone who loves ancient history including the Exodus. I’ve been to the Valley of the Kings and Queens with an amazing display of sarcophagi and carved tombs as well as the Temple of Karnak and the Pyramids and Sphinx in Giza. Really amazing history with such a sense of eternal God is, that He was there thousands of years ago and is still with us today!

  27. Angie Carroll says:

    My dad was in the navy and I was born in Japan but I don’t really remember it and my brother was born in Scotland which I love but now that I am an adult, a wife and a mother I would like to go back and share it with my family!

  28. Joe Downey says:

    Love to visit Angor Wat and the Country I love to revisit is Austria

  29. I would love to visit the Philippine Islands.

  30. Sue Williams says:

    I thought I would like to go to France because they do a cancan dance. But then I though of Switzerland by remembered dairy , I am not a fan. I then decided on Tim-buk-two, but the gps has no knowledge of this, Sue. So I guess I will stay in put where I am at, I can eat crawfish and get real fat~~~from Louisiana!

  31. Lynne Powe says:


  32. Linda Kish says:

    I would like to go to Greece.

  33. Natalie J Vandenberghe says:

    I have a passport that’s never been stamped! I hope to travel to Italy, Ireland, and Israel before my passport expires.

  34. Hello, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one
    and i was just curious if you get a lot of spam feedback?

    If so how do you prevent it, any plugin or anything you can suggest?
    I get so much lately it’s driving me insane so any assistance
    is very much appreciated.
