The one where we live with ‘brothers.’ (monks)

We just got back from Taize, France on Monday and it was quite an experience. We stayed in a monastic community where we lived in a community of brothers. A brother resembles a monk but just isn’t catholic. They have dedicated their lives to celibacy and to God. Taize is a community that is geared toward youth and they have hundreds and even thousands come to live in the community for a period of time. We had prayer services three times a day. Before breakfast, before lunch, and then after dinner. The prayer services are very unique. Everyone sits on[…]

The one where the hills come alive with the sound of music!

This past weekend was my first personal trip of the semester. And I loved it. Hannah Swearengin, Hayley Pankratz, Erin Knocke, and I got up super early to catch a bus, then a train, then another train, and then finally hours later arrived in Salzburg, Austria. The train ride there was beautiful. The scenery that we traveled through was incredible. After we arrived we wandered around for awhile until eventually finding our hostel. Yes we stayed in a youth hostel. And yes it was awesome. The next day we went to multiple museums such as Mozart’s birthplace and his residence. We also did some shopping through Old[…]

The one where we go hiking across the SWISS ALPS.

We went hiking through the Swiss Alps for our PE class….how sick is that.–yeah pretty sick right?! This was most definitely one of the most amazing experiences I have ever had. We road trains to Stoos and then had to ride cable cars and then ski lifts (yes ski lifts) to the top of these massive mountains! It was the most breath-taking place I have ever been in my life. No doubt. The pictures that we have do not come close to its beauty. It is an experience that you have to actually be there to comprehend the magnificence. We saw the land where Switzerland originated[…]

The one where we walk with sticks.

This past week has definitely been my favorite! Guess why– it was PE week! Brad King and his wife came over from MNU and got to spend time with us in Paris as well as play some super fun games and do interesting activities. We played badminton which was so much fun! (Ty and I dominated-just sayin) Then we go to rock climbing and high wires/ropes courses. Yesterday we played disc golf and ultimate frisbee. After the class session was over there were six of us that wanted to keep playing and our game got pretty intense. Lauren, Ty, and I[…]

The one where it all begins.

Hey my name is Cherith and I live in Busingen, Germany/Switzerland. (well for the next three months) I am at the European Nazarene College with a handfull of other students from MNU that came as well. I have been here for two weeks now and have traveled through four countries and have stayed in three already! Our first trip was to Munich, Germany to visit Dachau, which is a concentration camp there. The experience there was unreal. I just got back from PARIS  and it was the most amazing trip I have ever been on! I visited Sacre Coeur, Arc de Triumph, Notre Dame, The Eiffel Tower, Opera Garnier[…]
