When I graduated from college, I took my first trip to Europe with a borrowed backpack, a Rick Steves' guidebook, and a head full of poetry. That trip changed my life, and I returned with a very different view of myself, my country, the world, and my future.
Listening to Rick Steves in this interview, I wondered if people who love travel are unlikely to remain in Laestadianism. What about you?
What role has travel played in your life?

Have any questions you'd like answered, or topics you want to discuss? Please fire away!
To start things off, here's a question from a reader:
I was wondering if anyone has any idea what the reasons were for the split in the OALC church in Minneapolis in the early 70s.

|"Don't you be calling me a bunner, mister. And I did not toot."|
Toots was OALC slang in my childhood for fellow members, being short for the Finnish kristityt, or Christians. (The current slang term is now bunners, apparently.)
Anyhoo, I had no idea that in time, this site would be read daily by thousands of people, most of whom must wonder what extoots has to do with Laestadianism.
Perhaps it is time to choose a better blog address.
