Anyway, on to my trip to Germany, which was amazing! Of course the language was an obstacle, but we got around and it was fun. I have to say that learning and practicing some German was very helpful before embarking on my trip. At first it was a bit of culture shock for me and I was quite scared. My first day out sightseeing with Mark was amazing, but when he took me to the city of Dusseldorf, well, I had stomach problems. We attributed it to me being overwhelmed, which I was. So we left Dusseldorf and returned to Essen. I felt better there, just lingering pain from stomach cramps. But the next day Mark had to go to work and I plunged in on my own. Now that I am home I have ended up relishing the experience. I thank the Lord for blessing me with such a wonderful trip. He went before me and when I needed Him He was there in so many ways both big and small.
So on You Tube I made some slide shows of my trip and the things I experienced. If you would like to know more about my trip please post comments and ask questions. Otherwise it was a wonderful 18 days away. I enjoyed the food, the shopping, the people and the various places I visited.
