It has seemed like a long journey but we are finally here at Forterocca Mission Base !
After what seemed like forever we finally met up with our JE guide Giorgio and our bus driver Roberto at the airport. There’s nothing like being in a foreign country and seeing your name “Summit Christian Academy” on a hand held sign!
We loaded our luggage and we headed to Torino for lunch – Italian Pizza (too rainy for the walking tour) and then gelato! Yum! Oh, and by the way, Pepperoni here – is a pizza with vegetable peppers on it… a USA pepperoni is salami pizza! Note to self!
Austin Texas – Friday 8:00a – Austin Bergstrom Airport – Saturday 4:30p Forterocca – 26 hours
We are in our rooms, taking showers, relaxing before dinner and devotionals!
I’m writing this a looking out my window at the clouds hovering over the trees and crevices in the mountains! It’s a beautiful raining day! The ride from Torino to our lodging was pretty nice! Although, I have to take the word of Mr. Miller – he’s the only one who stayed awake the whole time! Grayson and I joined him for the last 30+ minutes! Amazing! Many times you could imagine yourself in a different time with the homes and the slate roofs and the sheep in the fields and the narrow passes!
Here we go! Thank you for your prayers! (I would ask that you go ahead and pray for our return flights… no crying babies!) The 8 hour flight had 2 very loud screaming (not exaggerating) babies! Makes for a long tiring trip for everyone! Attendants included!
BUT, we are here, safe and sound, ready to start a great adventure!
