Home again!

So I'm home! It's great saying that. I love Ibiza as it's definately my home.

Sometimes though, it's good to get away, and I was really lucky to be able to get out to Switzerland for my Auntie's 60th birthday celebration. It was great to see my family from back in the UK and also to see my extended family. We had alot of fun in Lausanne where they live. It was interesting trying to communicate with 3 languages...namely French, Swiss-German and English. And to think that I'll be trying to learn Spanish!!!

My mum, my sisters and i all then traveled with a great family friend to a region in Switzerland known as 'The Bernese Oberland'. It's such a beautiful part of the country and the world even. We stayed in a chalet in a town called Grindelwald, which is great for winter sports. The views of the Alps were immense! I simply love looking out over a valley and then seeing mountains towering above you. We had the best Fondue I've ever eaten; scaled some mountains; looked around the capital Bern and played 'Yassa', a Swiss card-game. We were there for about 4 days in total before we had to leave. We all wanted to stay much longer and hope to go back there. I miss snowboarding and who knows, i might just have to pay that place a visit in the winter.

My family flew home on Friday and i had to wait till Saturday till i could get home, so i was able to visit my friend Ursina who lived and worked here in Ibiza in the summer for about 7 weeks. She showed me around the city of Thun, and i got to spend some time with her and her community, who a part of 24-7 Prayer, the international movement that we are part of. They have a great big place right in the heart of the city, and they live in 'community' too. I then went back to Lausanne and then onto Geneva to catch my flight home.

I like being home!!!
