**Unfortunately due to the October 2023 Israel/Hamas war this trip was suspended. Further updates on my thoughts to come.
I'll have visited 5 of the 7 different continents in 10 months this year. 2023 has been a year of so much progress and learning.
Our next trip will take me to Istanbul to learn about the Byzantium Empire and the rise of the Ottoman Empire. I'm also learning about Egypt and Greece for stops in Alexandria and Athens.
