“I can’t stop smiling!”


When I was preparing to live in Switzerland, I googled my town like crazy! I kept seeing these pictures of these walking bridges in the Alps, but I didn’t believe they actually existed in my town! Last Sunday, my family and I went on a 3 hour hike right in our backyard on these walking bridges!!!! We literally walked down the road, and then up a path to the best hike ever! The hardest part was the first steep hill. The rest of the hike was flat with random inclines with nothing too difficult, but it was definitely a workout! My favorite part was walking on the path and realizing that the only thing separating me and a 3,788ft. drop was a wooden railing. The metal bridges were incredible! When I stopped off the first one, I remember thinking, “Why can’t I stop smiling?” I think I loved the hike because I felt for the first time that this is exactly where I am supposed to be right now! Seeing all the pictures on Instagram about Homecoming has made me a little homesick, but I realized I live in Switzerland! Living in the Swiss Alps is 100 times better than Homecoming will ever be! Also, seeing just how massive the mountains and trees are truly humbles me and makes me question why  I was so worried about something unimportant. Not only am I learning a new language and culture, but I am also learning a new way to prioritize life!

Thank you so much for all of your prayers and support! I hope that you feel challenged as well to reprioritze your life and alter your focus.

I hope you have an incredible day and enjoy the photos below!!!
