Interested in A Study Tour Following the Footsteps of Paul?

I am just throwing this out to all of you out there. We are currently exploring the feasibility of offering a guided study tour following the footsteps of the Apostle Paul to Greece and Turkey. There is a possibility that you can take this study tour for a 3-credit hour course with Seminari Theoloji Malaysia. We are wondering whether there is sufficient interest out there for us to proceed with further planning.

We do not have any further details at the moment, but most likely, it would be a 8-9 day tour, and the cost would be at least RM5k!

We are looking at the 3rd quarter of 2008 for the trip, after the summer peak season, to take advantage of the lower cost.

If you are interest, please do drop me a note: karyong at stm dot edu dot my.

p.s. - concerning the photo: that's yours truly at Areopagus, standing at the spot traditionally believed to be where Paul stood when he addressed the people of Athens (Acts 17:25-34).

RM5k is pretty hefty. Tempting though. How long can you give us to start saving!!!

we are looking at 3rd quarter of 2008 - so that gives you more than a year to save up - so it's either books or tour!! :-)

Kar Yong said...


sure, please advertise at the agora blog....let's see whether we could generate sufficient interest.

after all, that photo is taken not too far away from the Agora!! So the agora people must visit the REAL AGORA...

sounds interesting. Is it politically safe to travel in those areas?

Kar Yong said...

It's safe to travel to greece and turkey. For turkey, we will visit ephesus, and if time permits, we might even throw in the seven churches of revelation.
