Craig's Experience in Wales A personal documentation of my journey as an exchange student in Great Britain

In a postcard

SWITZERLAND | Saturday, 14 April 2007 | Views [857]

As of this moment I am in Lausanne, Switzerland. Tomorrow that will change, though, as I head back to Innsbruck, Austria to spend some more time in my favorite place thus far. Boy, where do I start right now... looks like I have 15 minutes left on this session so I better start somewhere. How about today? OK, so this morning I left Interlaken, Switzerland with the intention of going in the moutains to a village called Grindelwald. The train ride to the village was absolutely unbelieveable... the waterfalls, the perfectly flowing streams with their rock-filled banks, the clear and sunny day, the powerful and protective snow-capped mountains. Why do I use the term "protective"? Well, for some reason I feel so at home in these Alps all around me. I feel protected and safe ... secure and comforted. When the train finally made its way to Grindelwald, I had the intention of finding my hostel and throwing my bags down to do some hiking and to explore. I soon realized that all the hostels in the village were closed until late May. To be honest, I didnt really care all that much because my attention was completely focused on what was around me. The moutains... oh, the mounatins... and the lush green everywhere my eyes could see... and the steadly flowing, picturesque stream just below... ANYBODY with a pulse would be just as speechless as I was at that moment. Thats why I was so shocked to see that those around me were looking at ME like I was the oddball. Why wasnt everyone else stopped in their tracks, gazing as intently at the beauty so close by? I see that I now have 4 minutes left, so unfortunately I must stop right now before the entry doesnt save on the site. Upon my return to Wales in a week I shall write some more entries about the experiences that I am being blessed with. There have been so many things that have happened that I absolutely can not wait to share. I head back to Austria early tomorrow morning for some more time in Innsbruck. I will then go to Klagenfurt, Graz, Vienna and then back to Salzburg. Salzburg.... oh, man.... you all would love the sounds that come from those streets at night. Alright, best get going. GOD BLESS... Philippians 1:3, Craig     Yes, this photo was taken in Austalia. But until I get back and post my Austria/Switzerland photos, this one will do ;)
