Oh, the places we’ll go…

The European Asian City

Standing in the swirling mist of the Istanbul airport, we gazed out at the familiar yet foreign cityscape rising from the horizon. Within the half hour, we had arrived at our hotel, ready to begin our small stay in the unique city. Our first day began with a trip to a little slice of home–an […]

Leaving Dad

This morning my dad left I could of started a flood and how Emma described how the angels cried for kitty this time God cried all week for the leaving of my dad. And now I wan to get on his bus and go with him. He is probably crying a lot or sleeping. He […]

Istanbul more sooner than later (Episode: Face the Food)

Well my dad left this morning and I cried a lot. I didn’t even want gelato. But now I am not really over it but enough so I’m getting prepared for Istanbul. It will be tough because I barely eat but I have to try. EEEEEWWWWWW. I don’t even know some of the foods they […]

Arriving and Leaving

At this museum we went to, the new Acropolis Museum in Athens, there was this plexiglass floor that let you see the Greek/very old city underneath. The problem is, you were really standing on a ceiling, the people below could see up people’s skirts. I can tell you now, it was not a […]


The beach in Portugal

Portugal was great! We had met my mom’s cousin named Emma. She was so nice and had the cutest little darling daughter ever. Her name was Arabella and was so small. She had started wearing my Pajamas for the mountains. It was like a dress for her. But […]

John Paul the II

Standing in the light of God – St. Peter's, Vatican City

John Paul the II, I think, is known to all people. My family loves him and my mom said she would like to have him as her grandpa. I would like to meet him. He always wears a smile. To me […]
