I arrived yesterday in Switzerland. I am here with Jane and our friends Steve and Kelly. The purpose of our trip is to enjoy a beautiful wedding reception for Steve and Kelly’s daughter Sarah who married a Swiss young man named Michael. While we are in Europe we are going to visit Paris, London, and Dublin. It should be a fun couple of weeks. Arriving yesterday in Zurich was stunning. It always is. The Alps can be seen in the distance. The trees and fields are beautiful from the sky. Switzerland really is one of the most beautiful countries on the planet.
If you have never traveled, I hope you will try it. There is something wonderful about stepping away from what is familiar to experience something different. Seeing landscapes, hearing language, and eating food that is different really causes you to grow. It gives you a great appreciation for where you live and an expanded understanding of this great world we inhabit.
Maybe a trip around the world is a little out there for you. A few weekends ago, Jane and I just drove 90 minutes from our home and the landscape dramatically changed. The air seemed cleaner. The sun seemed to shine a little brighter. Big life people have an expanded world view. It is obtained through reading and travel. Don’t miss it. This is your one life…..Live it big.
