Sitting in the New Mosque in Istanbul
I had to cover my head in all the mosques. They wouldn't let Tyler in one mosque becuase he was wearing shorts so he had to wrap one of the head scarfs around him like a skirt to cover his legs, it was pretty funny. I had a hard time being reverent in the mosque with Tyler walking around in a skirt.
Ty eating the "McTurco" from Mcdonalds in Turkey (it was so nasty!)
The Cave of the Apocalypse in Patmos where John wrote the book of Revelations
Ephesis where Paul wrote his epistle to the Ephesians
Samos, Greece
Our beautiful faces after our night train and 24 hour journey from Athens to Istanbul
The Blue Mosque in Istanbul

After the Turkish bath they wrapped us in a million towels and put us in a room that was about 110 degrees to sweat out all the toxins...that's why my face looks like I have a major sunburn or just ran 5 miles. We just laughed our heads off.
Night time during Ramadan
Waffles with Nico in NYC!! I was so happy we got to stay at their awesome apartment, they were such gracious hosts!!
The parthenon at the Acropolis
Our well balance diet for every lunch and dinner on the trip: Gyros from street vendors for $1.50! Sometimes we'd go big for dinner and get a greek salad...I think we ate about 10 lbs of feta cheese on the trip.

I feel like I was there with you two through these pics. I especailly loved meeting E.T. :) JK! You don't look like E.T. in that picture at all. In fact you are probably the most naturally beautiful gal I know. You wouldn't even want to see pictures of me living off some far away land with no make-up or flat iron. :)
I love my gypsy ring and I love you!
