Thank you for tuning in to read and view pictures about my spring break. Just as a reminder, we traveled to Amsterdam, Berlin, Prague, Lucerne (Switz), Florence, Pisa, Rome, and Barcelona. I had a great time, though I did catch a cold in the third city. After visiting most cities I wish we actually had more time—we only did two days in each place. Either way, the small tastes of each city were good, and in some cases I cannot wait to visit them again. We actually planned this trip really well, so if any one of you plans on traveling Europe I can help. I will say as one point of advice: if you buy a EUrail Pass, fill it out before you get on each train. Otherwise, you will end up with a €50 fine like me. It was totally my fault—I didn’t argue with the officer. Besides that, everything went smoothly; I even got the chance to ride in a sleeper car on an overnight train. Needless to say, I did not get much sleep as the train was shaky—it was still a nice experience. Enjoy the photos and the short excerpts on each place. I experienced and saw a lot more than I will post on here, but I will do my best to show you the highlights.
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.
