Notes on the TIFO Sabbatical

My employer is really terrific. One of the best benefits they offer is an eight week paid sabbatical with every seven years of full-time service.

People can use this time for anything they want to.

I recently completed my second sabbatical and took a few notes and photos along the way. I called this the TIFO Sabbatical:

Turkey – We spent a week in Istanbul and a week driving around from Ephesus to Cappadocia. We had talked about hanging out in Turkey for a while now with my sister Susan and her husband Court, so it was great to finally experience this amazing country with them.

Israel – After Susan and Court went home to Myanmar, Deb and I spent a week in Israel visiting the famous sites around the holy land and relaxing on the beach in Tel Aviv.

France – After a day or so in Barcelona, we picked up a car in Montpellier and drove through Provence, Lyon, Burgundy and Champagne, taking about two weeks for this adventure.

Orlando – Finally flying out of Paris we spent about a week visiting our youngest daughter at her job in DIsney World.

Turkey, Israel, France, Orlando – TIFO!
