After only a short 3 month blog absence, I’m back determined to complete my Capture Life 365 posts before moving on to any other blogging! Obviously these next three posts happened in the last weeks of 2014 which I’m aware most people will have now moved on from! Though for the sake of having a complete years worth of posts – and my kids telling me I have to post them, here they are – for my kids!After picking up and dropping off many people over the last few years, it was finally OUR turn to go through the terminal doors!!Yes, we were just a little bit excited! Note the hostess in the background looking all official and not anywhere near as excited as us, this was taken before she went to sleep down the back, allowing Charlotte to pretend to be an air hostess and take our drink orders then go get them for us!Dawn breaking over India…
We scoured the Internet for the absolutely cheapest flight deal possible, which meant a 50+ hour trip, five different airports, taking all our luggage off in Thailand, then re-checking in with another airline later in the day. The sleeping hostesses goes to show you get what you pay for! To make the trip a little less taxing on everyone and to give some time for the family to process the last 2 1/2 years on the field we decided to take a few days in Thailand since we had to get off there anyway.
We found an absolute gem of a place, perfect for what we needed - a retreat centre for Christian cross cultural workers on a low budget. We couldn’t recommend Juniper Tree highly enough!
All our luggage went missing on our Ethiopian Airlines flight, however after enjoying some travels of their own, our bags were found and returned to us 36 hours later!First time in the ocean after 2 1/2 years!Was just a little blustery!Drew obliged me by climbing the coconut palm to pick me a fresh coconut!One of the great things about staying at Juniper Tree was meeting christian workers from all around the world. We met this awesome family from the UK and our girls became quick friends!Back in another airport, we found the best bathroom ever! You could actually rate your toileting experience! That alone made us want to give them an ‘excellent’ rating! Suvarnabhumi Airport - your bathrooms rock!
