Jesus Loves Me – Lake Tekapo, New Zealand

March 22, 2017

After twenty-four hours of non-stop travel Sydney and I are finally settled into a nice cozy campsite that was literally a gift from the Lord. We are nestled in grove of fir trees overlooking a glacier blue lake. Amazingly, we have the place to ourselves too. You have to know exactly where you can camp […]

Into Thin Air – Traveling to Middle Earth

March 21, 2017

After our twelve and a half hour flight, Auckland came into view through the early morning clouds. As the lights of the big city I had a sudden twinge of “what on earth are you doing bringing a young girl half way around the world”. It was such a abnormal thought for me that I […]

Homeward Bound – Scotland to USA

November 3, 2015

At 11p, I guess we had been sleeping enough, so the Holiday Inn in Glasgow kindly woke us up with a fire alarm drill. Chloe forgot to grab her jacket so she was pretty cold standing outside in the rain in the Scottish night. One of the hotel staff kindly gave her his own suit […]

A Local Perspective – Scotland, Edinburgh

November 3, 2015

When we got to Edinburgh, we went to our new room for the night. We were blown away at the upscale nature and size of it. It would have easily fit three plus London boat rooms inside of it and the staff were so helpful. They even got online and searched for a place for […]

October 20, 2015

Jesus is using my Chloe to teach me again. I am all about trip logistics and making sure all the various pieces fit together to flow well. Chloe is all about Jesus and is more concerned with all the lost souls around us. It reminds me very much of Martha and Mary. Martha was so […]

A Forest and the Pub – England, Sherwood & Oxford

October 15, 2015

We spent a travel day yesterday getting from Kendal to Mansfield. The closest place I could find to the Sherwood Forest. Our original plan was to also go see the forest that day, but we would have gotten there thirty minutes before it closed and I did not really know how much time our visit […]

Up on a Hill – England, Ambleside

October 14, 2015

“Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.” – Matthew 18:3 One thing I love about being a dad is that it gives me the chance to be a kid over and over again. Chloe and I laughed so hard and so long […]

Down in the Valley – England, Kendal

October 13, 2015

One of the things that is stretching Chloe the most about this trip is all the decisions that have to be made. Each night as we come back to our home away from home (so far a new place every night) we have to decide what the new day will hold and how the Lord […]
