Arrived back to Johor Bahru last night after a long tiring journey from Athens-Dubai-Kuala Lumpur-Johor Bahru. Was with the "Following the Footsteps of St.Paul" Greece Study Tour 2008 organised by Seminari Theologi Malaysia (STM) under the spiritual direction of Dr Lim Kar Yong (anyone who take photos of his food is okay in my books) .

I have had a wonderful trip with a group of wonderful people. It is wonderful to feel the love of Christ experienced through his people. I believe the apostle Paul would have had the same experience travelling with Silas, Luke and Timothy along these routes. Coincidently we also have a few medical doctors in this tour.

I shall be blogging about my musings about the tour over the next few weeks.

There were 28 of us in the tour. We visited the following places and the links are to Kar Yong's posts.
• Philippi (part 1, part 2[Lydia], Part 3, part 4, part 5)
• Thessalonica (part 1, part 2)
• Berea
• Kalambaka
• Meteora
• Delphi
• Athens
• Corinth and Cenchreae
• Greek islands of Poros, Hydra and Aegina
