Post travels to Morocco


The Post recently traveled to Morocco with the Norris family. The photo above shows Solon Township’s TJ Norris, with husband Ken behind the iPhone camera, at the astounding Grand Mosque in Casablanca, Morocco, in mid-March. The couple were on a two-week tour when international borders started to close due to COVID-19 restrictions, cutting short their vacation in a wonderful kingdom filled with amazing sights and amazing people. With the help of the in-country tour company and the American Consulate in Casablanca, they were driven to Marrakech, expatriated by flights to London and then back to the U.S.A., to Chicago. Local travel agent Lori Visser, who arranged the tour and had their back when times got sketchy, got them home from there. 

Thank you, Ken and TJ, for taking us with you! We are glad you got home safely!

The Post travels to Guatemala

The Post travels to Hawaii



Earlier this year the Post traveled to Hawaii with Alan and Alyson Kieda, of Solon Township, and their daughter Rachel and her husband Ryan Campbell, and grandson Thomas, of Gand Rapids. The trip was to celebrate Alan and Alyson’s 40th wedding anniversary.

After missing a day because of ice at the airport, they traveled to Maui for a few days, then Oahu for almost a week, and then the Big Island for a week. 

“We stayed at a beautiful Airbnb and played on volcanic beaches,” said Alan. “We learned all about volcanoes, as one cancelled two of our housing possibilities early in the year. We wondered why they didn’t just clear the lava off the road. We went to see it and found lava 30 feet high-plus over the roads and neighborhood for miles! 2000 folks lost their homes,” he said.

The Kiedas and Campbells had a great time and took lots of photos with the Post. Thank you so much for taking us with you!

Post travels to Israel


 

The Post recently traveled to the holy land of Israel with Rachel (Reed) Hunt and her husband, Joshua, of Martin. The couple spent five days on the escorted tour. They stayed in Tel Aviv, and in Ginosar, near Tiberius, on the Sea of Galilee.

They visited quite a few sites, including Pzfat, a city well known for art, and they went to a couple of art galleries there; they toured the Golan Heights, which used to belong to Syria; visited the the Mount of Beatitudes, where Jesus gave the Sermon on the Mount; visited Capernaum, where they saw the ruins of the Apostle Peter’s house and the synagogue next door where Jesus taught; and in Caesarea they saw the ruins of Herod’s palace and visited a winery. 

In Jerusalem they visited the Holocaust museum and visited an Israeli museum where they saw the Dead Sea Scrolls. They toured the old city section of Jerusalem, where they saw the tomb of Schindler; visited the supposed site of King David’s tomb; visited the upper room where the last supper allegedly occurred before Jesus’ death; visited the Wailing Wall; and walked the Via De La Rosa which ended at the Church of the Holy Sepulcher. On their last day they floated in the Dead Sea, after covering themselves in a sticky muck, which washed off in the water, but left their skin feeling soft and smooth. They also visited Masada.

“One of our favorite things was going to Masada,” said Rachel. “But it really was enjoyable seeing all the sites and learning about the history with a group of people.”

Thanks so much, Rachel and Josh, for taking us with you!

The Post travels to the Netherlands


Last August, Herm and Rosemary Standhardt travelled to the Netherlands  and took a Post with them. They stayed several days in Amsterdam. 

One of the sites they visited was the Amsterdam Central Train Station, which they said is a huge station built in 1890s and handles over 200,00 travelers a day. 

“Next to this station are many, many bicycles,” said Herm. “People who commute per train from this station park their older bikes there.

They also visited the Rembrandt Plein or Rembrandt Square. “All the painted characters in Rembrandts most famous painting,

the Nachtwacht or the Nightwatch, were cast in bronze and posted three-dimensional,” he explained.

Sounds like you guys had a great time. Thanks so much for taking us with you!

The Post travels to Colombia


The Post recently traveled to Colombia with Shana Poll. While there, Shana visited the cities Guatape, Medellin, and Nuqui.

In the photo, you can see her standing among some ruins. “Hello, from Guatape, Colombia. I’m on the pool house overlooking the burned out home of Pablo Escobar,” she said. And if you look closely at the photo, you can see she is pointing at a picture of herself from her last “Post travels to” earlier this summer when she went to China.
