Welcome Friends,
If you are viewing this page, you are on my blog that I plan to use to document my journey here in Europe, more specifically London. I borrow my blog title from Christian author, Rick Warren’s book, The Purpose Driven Life. In this book,Warren provides insights on how to seek your own purpose, authorized by God, by examining your life over 40 days. I go on to say all this to point to the fact that I do indeed believe that this entire journey, as well as what I have gone through in life thus far, is in fact part of the plan that God has for my life. I cannot easily say what my purpose in life is yet, but I do feel that I am called to do great things. To say the least, I hope you all enjoy reading as I continue to post. Feel free to comment and let me know you are thinking of me, as I am surely thinking of you. Keep myself and my cohort in your prayers; we greatly appreciate it.

Lucerne, Switzerland

             By this point in the trip I was really sick and hardly wanted to do anything the day we were in Lucerne.  I wasn’t particularly interested in mountain climbing in the cold on my spring break, especially without a real coat and with a new cold.  I left that to my travel mates, who enjoyed it while I enjoyed what was on the ground. I originally didn’t even want to go to Lucerne, but I am so happy I did.  I t was the most expensive place of all our stops, but the city was remarkable.  You will see what I mean in the pictures, but there is nothing like being there.  If I were to ever return, I would like to go in the summer.  Our time there was rainy, but you can tell it would be a nice summer spot.  The water that flows through the city is the clearest water I have ever seen, it flows directly from the Alps. This was by far my favorite city to walk around, cold and all.  There was no free tour here so I had a map and took myself around.  It was a great city, point blank.  Next to the Alps, the Lions monument is perhaps their biggest attraction, this one I was able to make it to.  I also had Swiss chocolate there and a Swiss fondue lunch.
