A little bit of balance…

As you can all probably tell by my lack of posts, my life is lacking a little bit of balance here in Switzerland.  I have been studying and working at the same time this term, and also trying to be a social exchange student.  It has been quite the challenge but I think I did fairly well.  Now during the Christmas holidays I must try to catch you up on my adventures here in la Suisse.

So this little adventure was a very fun attempt at learning the art of the slackline.  I think it was fairly successful.  I went from not even being able to get up on the line on my own, to being able to get up, stay in position, and then take one step on my own.  Andrea and I were new at it, but we enjoyed watching Ben and Stephanie perform some fun tricks!  Complements to Ben for the amazing photos!

The hills are alive!!!

This image is from an organized randonnée I went on in October with 60 other exchange students from UNIL and EPFL.  We visited the Aletsch Glacier.  It was a beautiful day and absolutely stunning!
