(Ever noticed that all of our post titles end with an exclamation mark? Seems we are easily excited!) So, as Whitney alluded to in the previous post, we also visited Rome during Sufrinko Fest 2015. I guess I should first apologize for posting this by, what is now, over a week since they left. SorryContinue reading “Rome, Italy !”

Look Who We Found !
The Sufrinkos! 😊 And they were here for 9 days of Shwitastic European fun! The trip was split into three parts. We started in Groningen, jetted off to Rome for a few days in the middle, and ended in Amsterdam. I’m going to take The Netherlands portion of our adventure. Shane will continue with RomeContinue reading “Look Who We Found !”
The Shwits Go to Egypt: Part 2
That’s right! As Whitney alluded to in Part 1, we are officially scuba certified! This is basically the whole reason we went to Egypt in the first place. And to make it even better, this was technically for the sake of my work and future career. A slight deviation to explain: As I have mentionedContinue reading “The Shwits Go to Egypt: Part 2”

Merry (Almost) Christmas !
I would just like to start out by saying that the city right now is just beautiful. So many lights everywhere! Each street has its own unique set. There are candles, twinkling diamonds, icicle lights, you name it. It actually makes it easier for giving directions… “Meet me on the street with the sparkling holly!” It’sContinue reading “Merry (Almost) Christmas !”
Lake Victoria !..the follow-up
And…..I’m back (only a month late)! I know, I know, I should have done this post a long time ago. However, things have been very crazy as of late. For starters, my 4-week trip to Tanzania ended up being extended twice, for a total of 6 weeks. Then, after finally making it home, I hadContinue reading “Lake Victoria !..the follow-up”
Lake Victoria !
Greetings from Tanzania! I would do a Swahili greeting but I’m still working on that one. From my understanding, it is ‘habari’ which means hello/how are you? The problem is, ‘habari’ is typically followed by more specific things like how is your work, how is your family, etc. I haven’t mastered that part yet…..so Greetings!Continue reading “Lake Victoria !”
