IF YOU HAVE NUT ALLERGIES, STAY AWAY FROM SWITZERLAND

Hello friends!
So I have been in Switzerland for just about a week, and everything has been INSANELY AMAZING!! 

  
Yesterday me and Becca traveled on confusing trains into Germany, but for now here are some of my observations and things that I have learned from my time in Switzerland. And some pictures to illustrate.

-Canada could learn from all the quaint buildings and smooth roads

    
-There is NO garbage anywhere!

-There are nuts in everything! Even cheese and meat. Poor Becca has had a bunch of minor allergic reactions, but if you could send some prayers her direction that would be cool.

-Switzerland has won the gene pool lottery! Everywhere there are guys that inspire heartfelt praise to God in our hearts.

-Since the roads are so windy, dangerous, and narrow, people have to be good drivers… Or die. Literally. 

   
 -Two days ago Becca’s Grampa took us up a mountain. What came to mind was what if I was up there enraptured by a puny flower, when all I have to do is look up to see a gorgeous mountain landscape? God taught me that sometimes I do that with Him. I get so caught up on the small picture, when He has so much better in store… He says, “look up!”

   
 -I am so glad Canada is not so OCD. In the province we stayed in, there are laws about how clean your car has to be. (VERY clean.) There is a law that says If you renovate or build a house it has to be traditionally Swiss looking. (Which looks cool, though.) And everyone is very prim and proper and polite. Consequently, that is what Becca likes about Switzerland. 

-It sucks when you are socializing with people you can’t socialize with. I have probably only learned about 5-6 German phrases so far but I am trying.

-It is weird but fun to be able talk about literally anything in front of the hoards of people that know not a lick of English 🙂

-There are bells on cows and in towers, and it is melodious and wonderful!

    Crushing on all the Swiss men are we?! 😉
    Hahaha that’s hilarious.
    Love the pictures and, the roads ARE crazy narrow aren’t they 😳

    Have a blast! To see different lands and cultures is amazing, especially when you connect with fellow Christians along the way and enlarge your “family” of God. Looking forward to hearing all your insights.
