My First Book

One of the most significant experiences I had in 2017 was participation in the Global Scavenger Hunt. Everything from its inception to its execution were moments of growth for me: taking leaps of faith, trying to listen to the Lord, raising money for charity, traveling to ten countries, disconnecting from the internet and phone, living 24/7 with an almost-stranger, being stretched and challenged to do things I never thought I could do, hoping to make a difference…

I kept up this blog as well as Fushilou, an accomplishment that seems impossible even to me, but I’m so glad I did it. It will be nice to look back on, a time capsule for my adventure.

And as a present to my parents for Christmas—although it arrived a week late—I made a book of all of my GSH blogs. 

Shipped from Holland. That could explain the delay.

I had to manually upload and crop every photo.

   This website (Travel Diaries) allowed me to copy and paste the text into its software, upload pictures, and then create a book. I am delighted with how it turned out, not only as my first “real” book, but also as a place to preserve my memories separate from the internet.

Cheers to all of you who encouraged me along with way 🙂
