KANDERSTEG, SWITZERLAND


SURPRISE ME

I seldom research about a place I’m about to go to. I want the element of surprise to always be there. I have the same attitude towards movies. I don’t really have high expectations. I enter the cinema, sit back, relax, and enjoy the show (no matter how corny, horrible, or predictable it may turn out to be).

I don’t really have high expectations. Maybe because I’m really just a shallow person. It’s so easy to make me happy. For me, life is meant to be enjoyed every second. Sure there will be problems along the way. But I’m not one to dwell on those. I focus on solutions. I always have to move forward. Quickly, smoothly, and happily!

WOW

Going to Kandersteg, Switzerland was no exception. I did not know a thing about the place. I just found myself in the company of friends, trekking the mountains, and blurting out a loud “wow” each time we reach a destination.

How can you not be mesmerized by this:

The colors of our world…amazing. I took them using my iPhone 5. No editing. No filters. When you see places like these, it’s so hard not to believe that there is a God who has intelligently designed Earth and the Universe. It’s simply breathtaking.

FIRST STOP: OESCHINENSEE

We had to ride a cable car to reach the peak. From there, we walked a few minutes and a beautiful oasis welcomed us.

Find something to marvel at, they say. And that’s exactly what we found at Oeschinensee. IMG_2106

This guy and his friends are responsible for this awesome trip. Thank you for showing these places to me! How could I have lived most of my life not knowing that these exist?!IMG_2024

The water is so clear, you can see the fish swimming in it. The green trees surrounding the lake make the water look bluish green. I have never seen anything like it.

THIRD STOP: Bern

The Parliament of Bern was featured in the opening scene of Iron Man 3.IMG_2548IMG_2557

We capped the long day taking pictures against this backdrop.

I went home feeling so much blessed. My world is wonderful. Each time I travel, I meet new friends and experience a lot of new things.

I allow life to surprise me and fill me up.

Travel on,
