Taking a break for places we can’t wait to see!


For the month of July, we’re taking a break from blogging to sightsee and work in another part of the world:  Romania!  Working with a team in Bucharest through Habitat Global Village, we’ll be renovating a school.  But we’re also adding some fun stops nearby and not-so-nearby.

First, we fly to Prague and take in what that city has to offer.  If tour books are any indication, we are in for a treat! Then drive (well, ride with a driver) to Budapest where we’ll stay three days taking a look at what that city has to offer.  (It’ll be all play up to that point).

Finally, we’ll fly from Budapest to Bucharest where the work on the school begins with our Habitat team.  Finally,  we’ll end end our trip with a few days in Brasov and nearby seeing Peles and Bran Castles, Sinaia Monastery, and Black Church.

We’re not sure how easy it will be to post pictures on our Instagram account, but that will be our foremost go-to social media portal:  https://www.instagram.com/rushasams/

If time allows and the internet connects, we may post pictures on Oh, the Places We See.

Regardless, we’re looking forward to any and all experiences.  As always, thanks for following us.  See you when we get back home!

      Thanks so much for your blessings and well wishes. Our trip was lovely and came off without a glitch. And, as you may know, many things can happen when you have several connections, flights, new foods, etc. But happy to report that we loved the places and people, too. So many good memories!

      Loved your post and pics. Especially the tale of old #16. I guess if we traveled the same route again we’d have other great experiences to write about. Blogging is sheer fun — sharing the memories!

      Thanks for your comment. We tried hard to “give back,” but the older we get the harder it is. Worked mostly on ripping out paneling and plastering. My work isn’t quality, but I did try my best!!! Hope your summer is going well.

      We’re back from our trip, so I couldn’t respond to your comment while traveling. We’ve never been to the area, but now that we’ve seen it, we have quite fond memories and a yearning to return! Thanks for commenting!

      Thanks so much, Curt. I wish I could read and respond so quickly to your posts. I love to read them, but I’ve been really, really busy lately. Will get to them, though. Have a good summer!

    Have a great time and a safe trip! Helping to build a school is wonderful. I once did that in my youth in Belgium.

      You’re right, Judy. I think WordPress published a post that said to tell readers you would be offline for a while and then catch up upon return. We hope to do all that when we get back. France is still on our bucket list!

        I like it!!! Best wishes for getting this going. I’ve thought often of starting a second blog, but I don’t post enough on the first one, so one it is. Will look for this when I return.

It makes our day to hear from you.
