Hello to all my diligent blog followers... or maybe some who are just happen to check in but don't actually read this whole thing. I'm sorry it has been so long since I have posted. I have so much I want to share about the awesome time Ryan and I had when my Mom was here to visit. The reason I have not been blogging is because I've been so busy getting things worked out for our trip to Israel, Egypt, and Jordan. For anyone curious I thought I'd put up the itinerary Ryan and I have put together. It may be tweaked a bit while we are there, but this will be the gist of our travels.

Monday June 28th: depart Munich airport at 11:15pm
Tuesday June 29th: arrive Tel Aviv airport at 4am (so early I know)
take a bus to the southern most part of Israel, Eilat
take a bus across the Israeli/Egyptian border at Taba
taxi from Taba to Dahab hopefully arriving around 2 or 3
we are meeting someone from for dinner and then to
watch the world cup game Spain vs. Portugal
Wednesday June 30th: find out way to the "Blue Hole" for a morning of snorkeling
explore the market in the afternoon
leave at some crazy hour to go hike up Mt. Sinai to be able to
watch the sunrise
Thursday July 1st: come down Mt. Sinai to explore St. Catherine's monastery and see
the supposed bush that burned in the Bible
travel to Sharm el Sheikh to fly to Cairo
try to see the pyramids sphynx and visit the egyptian museum
Friday July 2nd: fly back to Sharm el Sheik in the morning
take a bus to Nuweiba and take the ferry across to Aqaba, Jordan
bus or taxi to Wadi Musa
Saturday July 3rd: Explore Petra
Leave in the evening to bus to Amman
Sunday July 4th: Happy 4th of July!!!!! Michelle's fav holiday :)
Probably there will not be a bus running Saturday because of the Sabbath so we'll have to wait to cross into Israel until this day
Hopefully we will meet up with a friend of mine from home that has
been on a archeological dig for the last month in Israel and she
leave early on Monday
Monday July 5th: Everything from this point on a much looser because we can easily bus anywhere during the day in Northern Israel. I'm thinking Jerusalem though because there is so much I want to see there. Mt. of Olives, Bethlehem, Nazareth, Dead Sea are all near by
Tuesday July 6th: Head toward the Sea of Galilee
Wednesday July 7th: Happy Birthday Michelle!
Head west to Haifa see Baha'i Gardens
Ceasarea aqueducts
Thursday July 8th: head to Tel Aviv/ Jaffa area
Friday July 9th: our last day to squeeze in anything we haven't done yet
depart Tel Aviv airport at 6:45 pm
arrive Munich airport at 9:55pm
HOPEFULLY be back to Garmisch getting into bed at roughly midnight
for a good night's rest before work the next day

We would appreciate as much prayer as people are willing to offer for safe travels with no lost luggage, or issues with customs or immigration etc. Good connections with transportation and finding our way around, and that we have a really stupendous time!

We love you all!!!!
