Our Trip to Germany

It is very hard to put into our last two weeks into words.  I feel like anything I write or say about what we've experienced cannot even scratch the surface of actually telling you about it.

Fortunately Beth brought along her trusty camera, which will definitely come closer than anything I could formulate.

For the first week Beth and I attended a conference in Rehe, Germany.  We were able to reunite with many friends we had met almost a year ago exactly.  We were also able to dialogue with others who are serving overseas, as well as listen to those who have been in Europe for many years.

After the conference, Beth and I, along with three other couples, drove 3 hours south of Frankfurt to the Black Forest, where we had rented a cabin for the week.

We were close enough to both France and Switzerland to be able to make a day trip into a city in each country.  On Monday we drove to Strasbourg, France-- one of my new favorite cities!  We stopped at every bakery we saw, and ate pretty much everything in sight.

On Wednesday we were able to spend part of the day in Freiburg, Germany and Basel Switzerland:

For more pictures, check out the Picasa web album HERE.  It's kind of disorganized right now (and by kind of I mean extremely), but I'll try to have it cleaned up soon.


  1. timmie tim tim and beth! i know i am super late on this comment seeing as how you already have like 3 other blog posts but i just got caught up and wanted to say that i love, i mean LOVE, these pictures, they are so jolly! and if we are being honest, which i just figure we are, i will go ahead and admit that i am super jealous of your reunion with all the good folks from fpo and of all your super european excursions! i want to come!

  2. I could be wrong... but I'm pretty sure my parents were there at the same time!

    We were in Basel last weekend for the Skybridge retreat. Pretty cool little city.

  3. Oh wow! Who are your parents? That's pretty awesome!

    And thanks for commenting on this-- I just noticed the pictures and album aren't showing up at all.... I'm not sure exactly what happened. :-)

  4. Yeah, we really liked Basel a LOT. We wish we could have spent more than a day there and in Strasbourg. Both are just incredible places.

  5. It's fixed! Everything should be back up like normal! :-)
