"Unanticipated invitations to travel are dancing lessons from God." - Kurt Vonnegut
Certainly, unanticipated invitations to travel must be dancing lessons from God. We are thrilled to be planning for our semester at sea this fall and are doing quite a bit of celebratory dancing.
Way back in 2003, Mary applied for a librarian position on Semester at Sea, an around-the-world academic voyage. She was just as interested when the phone rang 3 years later. Since that phone call last month, we've been busy with inoculations, visa applications, financial planning and travel guide reading.
We are fortunate to be offered this opportunity and we are doubly blessed in that we can make this trip together. We leave home in August and will use this blog to keep everyone up-to-date. This blog is linked to a photo map to show where in the world we are when we snap each photo.
Yours in accepting unanticipated invitations to travel,
Kelly and Mary
