To ride - camels or elephants

Just over a year ago, January 2012, we were travelling and enjoying places like Malta, Cyprus, Egypt, Petra in Jordan and Israel, plus other coutnries mentioned in an earlier post.

I got to experience camel rides in Cyprus, Sinia Peninsula along side the Red Sea and Cairo, at the Great Pyramids.

I got to experience an elephant ride at Mysore Palace in India in July 2012.  (Sorry about the quality of the photo, it was taken on a friends mobile phone, as cameras were not allowed in at Mysore Palace).  It's me in the pink, an Vinolia Lincoln next to me, the pastor's wife that Justine and I stayed with while Jim was away preaching in different places. 

My impressions?  I'd have a camel ride any day, a more elegant gait then the elephant, and to think elephant rides were the ride of the "kings" - sultanas in India's history.

I count it a privilege to do the travelling I have done with my wonderful husband, and to see the amazing places and people, God in His master plan, created.

  1. You sure have been travelling far and wide, Susan. No wonder we didn't see any posts from you for so long. Glad you had a good time, but it probably feels great to be home again.
