Jeff and Crystal Zaugg's Unexpected Journey

Gandalf: I am looking for someone to share in an adventure that I am arranging, and it’s very difficult to find anyone. Bilbo: I should think so—in these parts! We are plain quiet folk and have no use for adventures. Nasty disturbing uncomfortable things! Make you late for dinner! I can’t think what anybody sees in them … Gandalf: You’ll have a tale or two to tell when you come back Bilbo: You can promise that I’ll come back?” Gandalf: No. And if you do, you will not be the same

As a youth and again while reading with our children The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien has been one of my favourite books. I am very grateful for the adventures we have had together as a family.

I am grateful Crystal and I can go on this adventure together and perhaps be late for dinner more than once.

We hope you will join us from time to time as we embark on Our Unexpected Journey! 

And if we are lucky, when we come back we will not be the same.

So far we have enjoyed many sites in and around Cairo. We are excited to go to upper Egypt surfing Christmas. 🎄 🎅🎁
