Two consecutive trips in a month

I love travelling but for the first time I had to do two simultaneous trips, quite hectic but memorable.  The first one was for Northern Spain early April, an invitation too hard to resist as I had been in most major cities in that country except the northern area.  Upon arrival at home at 2am, I again had to pack for the trip on that same day.  Fortunately I was able to sleep a few hours before proceeding once again for the airport, this time leading a Pilgrimage group to Jordan and Israel.

Both trips were rewarding however I was quite in pain because of all the times to have kidney stones attack, it was during these two important trips.  I thought all my stones were flushed so did not bring adequate medication.  Upon arrival at home on April 15, had to bring tons of them to ease the pain.  I shall write all about these experiences in my subsequent posts.

The Lord has His reasons we sometimes cannot fathom immediately but I am sure these challenges are just an introduction to more blessings to come.

  1. Travel sounds so exciting but in truth it can get tiring as well. And it becomes more challenging if you get sick along the way. I have trouble with hyperacidity during some of my travels. I hope your kidney stones didn’t bother you too much. You are blessed to have the opportunity to travel a lot. XO

  2. Yes it can be tiring but if it’s your passion then exhaustion can easily be forgotten 🙂 It is both a business and a passion and at this point in time after being a corporate slave for ages, I am sure this is what I like – Travelling!
