Thank you all for sharing the Trip that Was series with me. I didn't travel a lot before I got married, 15 years ago this year. In those 15 years, I've seen so much, and the big world became smaller in all the important ways. I've come to realize religion doesn't matter so much, culture can be glorious in its differences, and the people are not their governments. I saw that being friendly to a stranger who doesn't speak your language makes all the difference. We all want kindness, acceptance, and love. We want to share our stories and be accepted. People are people, and we all treasure the same thing: love, home, family.
In the last two months, I've shown you glimpses of 18 world cities, and a large portion of the 102 towns in the Netherlands my Dutch boy and I have visited together. You've met some of our friends, and family and shared in so many memories. I hope you enjoyed the journey.
