It took me -.5 seconds to reply, "Hmm, let me think about this---YES."
My dad has always wanted to travel to the Holy Land and do a religious tour based around the life of Jesus Christ, but since my mom passed away, he hasn't had anyone to go with. Well, I happily agreed to be his lucky traveling companion for this adventure. (My sisters have both had international daddy-daughter trips while they were in college, so they don't get to come on this one! Sorry, girls!)
So, Dad and I are heading to Israel tomorrow. To quote my favorite SNL skit ever, "I'm excited and a little scared." (Thanks, Brian Fellows!) I'm very excited to bond with my dad while learning about the life of the Savior, but I am a little nervous to be in such a foreign place, so far from Ryan (who will be stuck in Buffalo studying for the Boards), during a time of some international upheaval. But hey, I'll have my dad with me...surely, he'll protect me, right?
I am hoping to post frequently throughout my trip--photos and stories--so stay tuned!
