This week, I’ve been blessed with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to travel to Germany, and boy, am I leaning heavily on the Lord’s leadership on this one. Fellow author, Lisa Wingate, and I were invited by our German publisher to visit their wonderful country, participate in a book tour promoting our latest German releases, and culminating in a large book festival in Marburg on June 4. (I’m writing this before I leave, so I don’t have details to share yet, but I promise to tell you all about it when I get back.)
Here’s a little video my husband recorded to send to Francke Publishing to post on YouTube to advertise the book festival. (I’ll have you know I did this in one take. WooHoo! Of course, I practiced about 10 times before we filmed, and I was so jittery when I finished with the first one, that I decided not to press my luck with another pass. Ha!)
I’ve been fortunate enough to travel to Europe a couple of times in the past, but this will be my first time to visit Germany. I wish I had time to sight-see. I’ve always wanted to visit the castles of Bavaria – especially Neuschwanstein Castle – the one which inspired the Sleeping Beauty castle for Disney. Yes, my fairy-tale-loving, romantic-sap of a heart would like nothing better. However, this will be a business trip, so the castles will have to wait for another day. I can live with that. It wouldn’t be the same touring Neuschwanstein without my Prince Charming by my side, anyway.
So while I’m away, I won’t be able to respond to your comments, but I’d love to read them when I return.
What dream vacation would you take if you could go anywhere you wanted?
