Yoga!

Today is Wednesday July 25th, and our trip is almost over! By Monday we will be back in the US, but for now we’re still out there experiencing the culture of India. For example, this morning we started out our day with a little bit of yoga in the city of Ambala! The man who […]

Hadrian’s Wall and Scotland Travel Blog

My wife Pam and I were lucky enough to get to spend a few weeks in northern England and Scotland with my sister Gage and our nephews Gabriel and Christian this summer. Both Pam and I are classicists, so the travel had a heavy Roman focus, and this was also our first chance to explore […]

Sikhism

The last few days we have been in the beautiful city of Amritsar. Being walking distance from the Golden Temple, the Mecca for Sikhism, makes me feel like royalty. As we walked to the sacred place, shops lined the streets with knifes and shoe stores. The beauty was overwhelming.  The men bought handkerchiefs to cover their […]

First Destination

I can’t even describe how I feel right because everyone is so welcoming the hospitality is great and everyone treats us like family. The food […]

A Learning Process

Ever since being in India, everything has been incredible! India is filled with so much diversity, the people, the villages, the city, the food and the experience itself.  I have learned so much about it’s culture and religion. One thing that really struck  me the most was when the idea of Satsang was introduced to the […]

Visiting the Taj

Coming back home was not only one of the happiest moments in my life but also the most awaited. Even though I was home something seemed different. I appreciated even the smallest of things more now than when I lived in India. As a twelve year old when I first visited the Taj Mahal, my […]

Hosts of Hospitality

I was assigned to reflect upon yesterdays experience but my thoughts are still tied to the beautiful bungalow I was wonderfully welcomed into in Deverakhonda. Pastor Isaac and his lovely wife were wonderful hosts for Antonia and me. We were given a very comfortable room and our own bathroom (with a flushable toilet! I know […]
