1 Kings 8:56 “Blessed be the Lord, who has given rest to his people Israel according to all that he promised; not one word has failed of all his good promise, which he spoke through his servant Moses.

A crazy travel day awaited us today. Up at 2:15 am so we can be out of the house by 3:00 am for our 6:50 flight bound for Sri Lanka. We are all excited to get back to volunteering. While this vacation has been great, it was way too long for both me and Jeff. It was out of our hands, so I just had to accept it and enjoy it, but I am still glad it is almost over. Our flight to Sri Lanka included a 7 hour layover in Kuala Lampur, Malaysia which meant that we were able to see the Petronius Towers in downtown Kuala Lampur and a chance to take advantage of the wonderful train system linking downtown to the airport.

All three kids crashed on the drive to see the Petronas Towers (we took a car on the way into town and the train on the way back to the airport).

We arrived in Colombo, Sri Lanka quite late in the evening, and after a bit of panic at the airport (I forgot a piece of luggage at the turnstile, but thankfully was able to recover it). We found our driver, got our new SIM cards and we were off to the hotel. It was a very long day of travel and the kids were wiped out after the 24 hours of traveling. We finally got to the hotel around midnight, checked-in, got to the room, and we all crashed.
