After having worked in West Africa it was time for a change – time for a sabbatical year. In the Biblical understanding of the Sabbatic Year*, after six years of working there is one year of resting. As we, Karin & Victor, had both been working for six years, the time was right for a break.
To unwind. Relax. Reflect. Enjoy. Discover. Recharge. Be. Develop. Connect. And travel.
We started traveling in August 2014, and on this blog you will find different images of what we have seen along the way. We don’t know yet when or where this trip will come to an end – let’s see what the future holds!
* Leviticus 25:3-6: The Sabbatic Year: ‘Six years you shall sow your field, and six years you shall prune your vineyard and gather in its crop, but during the seventh year the land shall have a sabbath rest, a sabbath to the Lord; you shall not sow your field nor prune your vineyard. Your harvest’s aftergrowth you shall not reap, and your grapes of untrimmed vines you shall not gather; the land shall have a sabbatical year. All of you shall have the sabbath products of the land for food; yourself, and your male and female slaves, and your hired man and your foreign resident, those who live as aliens with you. Even your cattle and the animals that are in your land shall have all its crops to eat.’
