A Little Day Trip to the Baths

Brittany's birthday was yesterday and so a few of us went on a little day trip over to Konstanz, Germany to go to Hillsong Church and the thermal baths. We left at 7:30 in the morning and drove through Switzerland to get back into Germany and to the church. The service was in German and so I picked up a few points and sang in German as well! Afterwards, we headed towards the middle of the city and stopped at the memorial to Jan Hus, who was martyred in Konstanz. I had briefly studied him in my Reformation class but it was really neat to hear some more of his story from Katrina, who did a paper on him in college!

It was then time to go to the baths, which was super relaxing! Katrina, Megan, Justina, and I fell asleep for about 2 hours in the lounge chairs! We also went down an amazingly fun water slide numerous times and took about a 2.5 second dip in (freezing cold) Lake Konstanz. There was also much relaxing and swimming in the warm baths until we left.

All in all, it was a great day!!
