The second destination on our world tour was Israel, my birthplace and the Land of Milk and Honey, as it is said. (Also, the birthplace of Bamba**, one of the best things ever invented.) My siblings had already arrived so we had a lot of niephews (my term for nieces + nephews; shorter) cuteness to … More Davidai Sibs Take Over Israel

Jon and I planned an awesome safari trip to celebrate our 4th anniversary – Mvuu Lodge in the Liwonde National Park. It’s situated on the Shire River, an offshoot of Lake Malawi (the 9th biggest lake in the world). We headed out early and listened to podcasts and audio books, as per usual. Then, two … More Mvuu Me!

With all of the craziness going on, Jon and I decided to take a weekend away and try to relax a little bit.

I arrived in SA after a long, long flight from Atlanta, which became easier as I sat by a nice couple from New Orleans. We had a quick dinner and went to bed.

Well, I’m older. And to honor that, Jon and I decided to go somewhere warm with it starting to get colder in SA. We settled on the island of Mauritius, an island in the middle of the Indian Ocean, east of Madagascar. It’s part of the continent of Africa and was a French (and then … More Happy 33rd to Me!

Phew! We made a second trip to Malawi and it was… eventful. The trip started with Jon needing to break the telescoping handle of my suitcase at the airport because it wouldn’t go down. More importantly, we got to go to a lovely wedding of one of Jon’s colleagues, Katie, and her awesome Malawian husband, Adam. … More Malawi, Take 2!
