Walking Like Egyptians

Walking Like Egyptians

When I told my dad we were going to Egypt, his reply was this: “Will you learn how to walk like one?” Oh, Dad. But the answer was yes. Our camel guide at the pyramids made a joke about walking like Egyptians afterwards, and I thought he meant some version of being bow-legged. Now I […]

Sri Lanka at Sunrise

Before arriving to Sri Lanka, The Lawyers Without Borders told us we needed to climb Adam’s Peak at sunrise if it was a scavenge. Lo and behold, it was. I’ve only hiked one other mountain (volcano, technically) at sunrise, and it was an amazing experience. But man, it was tough hiking the cone of a volcano in […]

4 Days in Sri Lanka

A report from Mark again.  Jenny’s follows. We have been on the move again and we have reached the midway point through the trip. The last four days were spent in Sri Lanka with a “par 6” leg. Such a long leg meant that getting out of the main city of Colombo was not only […]

The Halfway There Report and Video!

Yesterday evening marked the halfway point, conveniently while we were still halfway around the world. Today, we traveled to Cairo, Egypt. This is the place of the Pyramids, guys!!! “You’re wondering what is a place like me doing in a girl like this?” “Uh, yeah, something like that.” (Let’s just say I watched the movie […]

The World Needs the Heartbreak You Risk

This is a video story I happened upon from my brother’s church. (The same one doing this coincidentally.) It is a beautifully gripping testimony of the pain of cancer and the pain of fatherlessness and the beauty that comes from both. So moving. Can you feel the holy tension in the questions raised? But most […]

9 Hours in Bangkok and a 1st Place Finish

This is a report from Mark because he explains why. I am writing this from Anuradhapura, Sri Lanka. I am also writing it using my iPhone because we left our laptops behind in Colombo. Let me first explain how we got here. Friday was a very long and busy day. The day started with breakfast […]

Going Rogue to Ha Long Bay

Today was the best day of my trip so far. Instead of participating in scavenges, I left at 7am to visit Halong Bay, which is three hours away from Hanoi and one of the most beautifully depicted seascapes I’ve ever seen. Seven years ago, visiting Halong Bay was a scavenge on the Global Scavenger Hunt, […]

Good Morning, Vietnam

ICYMI: the answer to yesterday’s riddle was Vietnam. Our second leg of the journey takes place in Hanoi, Vietnam. But before I talk about the country, I need to set the stage for why I’m the most horrible teammate in the world. An hour after we arrived, our score sheets were tallied and we learned […]

There is Risk in Online Dating? Really?

Online dating is definitely a part of today’s dating landscape. It is one of the tools we have available to help you “get your numbers up” to meet people. Yes, dating is a numbers game. You need to meet a number of people to find a good match. Don’t let that defeat you while at […]
