Puerto Rico’s rich Spanish heritage dates back to its founding. To this day, some streets are paved with steel-blue adoquín stone, which was used to ballast the Spanish galleons that transported settlers and goods. Photo by @mary_quincy. #myvikingstory
Visiting Place Saint Thomas in Strasbourg was an incredibly inspirational part of our time in France while on our @vikingcruises. Sharing more on the blog about how this church has inspired me to encourage those in my life who are in the beginning and middle seasons of their journeys.
Norway’s majestic landscape comes to life in Tromsø, the gateway to the arctic. Here you can embark on a glacier trek, kayak pristine waters, steer a reindeer sleigh through alpine scenery and share a meal with a local Sami family. #myvikingstory
Yesterday I shared on the blog a bit about Johannes Gutenberg, who lived in Strasbourg for a period of time until 1444. In 1452 Gutenberg conceived the "Bible project" as he was said to have nicknamed it and in 1455 Gutenberg completed his 42-line Bible which became known as the Gutenberg Bible. At the time 180 copies were printed. . . As I sat yesterday typing the blog post and contemplated my work for this week with upcoming book projects and writing deadlines, I was simply amazed. I think about my life as a full-time blogger and author and how far we have come since 1455. It was so humbling to stand there and look at the statue dedicated to a man who changed the world with his ideas. . . It truly makes you stop and reflect on the way that each of us have an opportunity to change our world for the better. . . To look beyond what has never been done. . To dream big for the future. . . To hold onto hope that there are always miracles to come. . . And most of all to believe that things we do today can have a long-lasting legacy on generations to come.
