Someone asked a few days ago where all in Europe we’re going to be going… So, I thought that would be a great thing to post about today. Now, these plans are all subject to change, but Lord willing, here’s where we’ll be going. 🙂
I’m really excited about this, folks! We’ve been wanting to go over there for years now (we have friends over there, my dad was stationed in England, which is actually where he became a Christian, and plus… HISTORY!), and it’s great to finally have the trip coming together!
We have a business convention in Austria, which is actually why the trip was planned in the first place. That’s where we will fly to. And we are flying out of England. What happens in-between I’m really not sure about yet, except (hang on tight here, I might just explode with happiness!), except… WEAREPLANNINGONGOINGTOTHEBEJE!!! I can’t even tell y’all how much of a dream come true this is for me. Oh, and in case you needed that slower: We. Are. Planning. On. Going. To. The. Beje. Which is The Hiding Place.
If any of you have read Corrie ten Boom books, you’ll know what I’m talking about. I began devouring her books at around the age of 10 and pretty much continued doing so until I’d read all her books I could find. Most of them twice. Some of them a lot more then that. My oldest sister is even named Betsie after Betsie ten Boom.
If anyone were to ask me growing up where was one of the places I wanted to visit most, I would have probably answered The Hiding Place, or possibly the Swiss Alps (because of this book). Now I just might have the chance to go to both places in one month! EEEEK!
So yes, I could continue gushing, but I think I’ll save that for another day. 🙂 Before I go though, I have some questions for y’all:
What are some of your favorite books (fiction and non-fiction) that either take place in Europe or are about European history? I’d be delighted if y’all could give me some recommendations! I really studied up on WW2 and Pearl Harbor before visiting there last year, and it made it so much more meaningful. I want to try and do the same with Europe.
Also, have y’all been to Europe? What was your favorite place to visit? If you haven’t been there, where would you like to visit?
