Right outside my window!
Today I got back from a fantastic Church retreat near the Lake District. I met a lot of nice people, learned a lot from speaker Pete Gaskell and the Bible, and witnessed some of the most breathtaking views I've seen yet. The rugged scenery is absolutely gorgeous - this is the reason I decided to study in northern England - and I'm so glad that I was able to see this country side my first weekend after classes 😊 I will be adding pictures bit by bit, because the internet I use in my flat limits how much I can upload to the internet. Some pictures show the land right beside our Christian Center we stayed at. The view from my room was amazing! Very English to say the least. 😊 The other pictures show our climb of Cat Bells, a small mountain cluster by Keswick. If anyone comes to visit England, I must say that they have to make sure they stop in Northern England 😊. The pictures may not due the place justice, but you can get a least a little idea of how awesome the view really was.

The coolest part for me was seeing the sheep stroll right past me on the mountain :) It seemed it was coming from a movie!
