i've spent a long time today getting these pictures ready. i was going to save them all for one post, but for some reason, this post isn't saving anymore. therefore, i am forced to post our europe trip in two different parts. i hope you enjoy! more to come in a few days.
i have an obsession with stained glass.
below: this is the only statue/depiction of Christ in europe that touched me personally.
jake and his weapons. don't mess.
below: how amazing are these strawberries?
this picture below was basically our routine. changing of the clothes before going into the pension/hotel. gotta love it.
"i am 16 going on 17"-- yes, there were about 40 people watching us kiss in front of the sound of music gazebo.
i think this picture is so cool. pretty little bell flowers growing out of a stone wall.
i love you, D90.
picture below: jake at hitler's eagle's nest.
tunnel leading to the eagle's nest.
above: our favorite german word.
below: best food ever.
this lady asked us to find her an american husband. her name is hilda.
we told her we'd try.
the top of europe: jungfraujoch
it was really bright.
below: i call this picture "almost." this man acted like he totally knew what he was doing.
apparently he didn't. but for some reason, i really like it.
probably one of my favorite pictures of jake ever.
below: jake's new friends. i censored it by a spider web, if you couldn't tell.
me and rebi. she is so fantastic.
below: bill kazmaier, strongest man that ever lived. we saw him in the airport on the way to germany and jake used his skills to find him and get a picture.
my german parents. it's a long story, but basically barbel (the sweet lady) sat by me on the airplane from atlanta to germany when i was flying to my mission more than two years ago. we instantly connected and have been writing letters ever since. she and her husband horst were so kind to us. it was a miracle that i got to see her again.
