Capture life 365–week 50

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!week 50 2After picking up and dropping off many people over the last few years, it was finally OUR turn to go through the terminal doors!!week 50 5Yes, 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!week 50 6Dawn 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!

week 50 8All 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!week 50 7week 50 9First time in the ocean after 2 1/2 years!week 50 10week 50 18week 50 20week 50 24week 50 30week 50 34week 50 38week 50 39week 50 41Was just a little blustery!week 50 42Drew obliged me by climbing the coconut palm to pick me a fresh coconut!week 50 44week 50 45One 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!week 50 48Back 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!
