I am already at the local airport bound to another airport for an international flight. It has always been a pleasure of mine to travel. To see the world. There's always another place to see. There's always another destination to look forward to. There's always a newly discovered spot. And yes, it's always fascinating how vast the world is, while it is also quite amazing how the world has become "smaller" and accessible to almost everyone.
I remember those days, I wondered what an airplane is, what it is to be physically inside it. And I also fancied flying. Thought of a lot about flying. More so when I have ready about Icarus. I'm not sure if you guys know that story. Think it was back in my 4th grade that I was able to read it and was stunned at the possibility of flying. Now thankfully, I am able to travel.
Now, I am bound for another quite long travel to another side of the world.
And hope for the best in this travel. I am taking time now to just ponder and think of all the blessings that God has allowed me to enjoy and share. I am blessed beyond what I could have thought years ago. Thankful to God and the universe for all the positive energies and positive things I have received. And I am thankful most specially for gift of life and for the opportunity to travel.
Afte exploring the beautiful place of Tsakhgadzor, we went to Sevan Lake where the Sevanavank Monastery towered over it. There's a nearby restaurant where we enjoyed a sumptuous lunch.
One of the things you get to enjoy is the panoramic view while witnessing the beauty of this Christian Country! Monasteries and Churches would be one of the highlights in your trip to Armenia!
The next day in Dubai, I agreed to my very good friend and brother who also have a lot on his plate. Quite a busy man, but was able to manage to squeeze me into his schedule.
This remarkable man has done great things following God's lead. He is also one of the reasons I was able to visit Dubai, he processed my VISA to Dubai. According to testimonies of the people around him, he's done wonders in their community. Truly, praise God for the life of this man.
I agreed t attend the service where he also serve as a Pastor. After that, there was a fellowship (salo-salo) of the members of the community. I enjoyed their warm welcome. There is an upcoming event of the church so I also agreed to tag along with them to have their practice in one of the hotels in Dubai. ...continue reading
One of the motivations I've had in deciding to visit this place is the thought of seeing my friends in Dubai and experiencing the life they have there. Years ago, after graduation, I have heard about the tallest tower in Dubai Burj Dubai or Burj Khalifa. I have since wondered how it looks up close. I have seen photos of my friends being there, going up at its top, and yeah, enjoying the scenery.
I have then started planning the visit. One of the kick off step is to book a ticket. It has always been my personal tradition that, I book flight tickets ahead of time, even months before the trip. And yes, it has always worked for me. Resources get allocated and I was able to make it work, somehow. Although, I too, wonder how I managed it. But, that's not the issue, thing is, Dubai happened last November 2016. ...continue reading
