Pilgrimage To Israel, Palestine And Jordan Day 3

Today, our bus took us to Jordan. Our Palestinian tour guide left us for now because he couldn’t cross the border but we’d see him again after this short trip. I was quite excited about this trip. Not only because we would go to Petra where Indiana Jones was filmed but also because one of … Continue reading Pilgrimage To Israel, Palestine And Jordan Day 3

Pilgrimage To Israel, Palestine And Jordan Day 2

Our pilgrimage continued so did the tight schedule.    Early in the morning (it was really early), we went to the Church of Primacy of St. Peter Mensa Christi and had our mass there.

Surprises In Norway!

We had a wonderful day yesterday dogsledding on the pure white snowy terrain in Karasjok. Today, we had to say goodbye to all the staff – the human staff and the furry four-legged staff – and headed to another destination, Kautokeino.  As we headed further south, we went past this building.  We curiously got out … Continue reading Surprises In Norway!

The Speechlessly Spectacular Northern Lights!

Early in the morning, I was woken up by some strange sound. It sounded like something was walking outside my room in the snow. A person? But the footsteps sounded very light, too light to be an adult. A kid? It couldn’t be. The kid should be accompanied by an adult so I should be … Continue reading The Speechlessly Spectacular Northern Lights!

The Legendary Trolls

We had our breakfast in our hostel before we departed. While my friend was sitting in the dining room, facing the large windows, working on her computer, she suddenly screamed with excitement. She said, ‘Look!! Look!! It’s a..., it’s a..., it’s a..., what is it?’ I screamed too. It looked like a fox and it … Continue reading The Legendary Trolls
