And when Switzerland calls, you better OPEN the door. Or in my case, take an overnight bus to Geneva. It is a really strange experience to wake up on a bus at 6:30 am and know that you are in a different country. Or at least hope...I am not going to lie...I questioned the fact that I had actually made it there. All 7 of us who went seemed very suspicious off the whole trip. We were a little delirious and I was just praying that I had lead the group to the right country.
Nothing is very exciting that early in the morning after missing loads of sleep. I don't recommend that form of travel, but it's cheap and hey, I TOOK A BUS TO GENEVA!!!
The few first hours are all a blur to me really. I had been given the leadership role. On the outside I laughed it all off, but on the inside I was just hoping that everything would work out. And its scary trying to lead people around a foreign country. All of the girls were really cool and helpful, but I was supposed to know. The PRESSURE....I was thankful it all worked out.
We stayed at a youth hostel and they were SO nice and helpful. Not sketchy at all. Once we checked our stuff out there, we started exploring. I had to get Swiss Francs out. There money is so colorful! I liked it.
Then, I saw Lake Geneva. And behold, it came to pass that the Lake was breath-taking!! Literally, just so calm and clear. You could see straight to the bottom. Yes, it does kick butt on Utah Lake. Everything is just so clean and collective. It was a fun environment to be in.
And there were mountains...OH THE MOUNTAINS!! It's been awhile since I have seen any of those. I don't know how alive I was at that moment. But I knew that I was loving what I was seeing. It is just so strange to tell yourself you are in Geneva. Every five seconds, "Guys, we are in Geneva" or "We are in Switzerland!" What? I wonder sometimes if I am just crazy and imagining all of this. It's beyond a dream.

I'm just going to call this a sneak peak, because my eyes are shutting and I want to sleep more than anything! I will post the rest of the trip when I can keep my eyes open.
