I just received notification of the places I will be visiting in the course of the semester. I can’t believe it; I got every trip I wanted except one–too many blessings to count! The field program involves traveling inland in each port and experiencing first-hand what we have been studying on board while at sea. As part of our “homework” for each class, we must participate in certain trips. For example, I will see various temples throughout the world to satisfy the homework requirements for my World Religion course.
I can’t help but look at these countries and wonder who I will meet, where I will go, and what I will experience. Slightly overwhelming thoughts, really…
