Every day is a journey, and the journey itself is home.
I arrived at Renens around 7pm, and the host Yann came to pick me up at the station. He and his wife are pastors and loved receiving guests from around the world. He reached out to me on Couchsurfing and I saw all the amazing comments previous guests had left. Although I had never heard of Renens before, it being a suburb between Geneva and Lausanne, this man seemed so gracious and welcoming that I had to meet him.
He was very friendly and took my luggage as soon as I arrived. That night, it was raining quite heavily. It took us about ten minutes to walk to his house from the station, but the rainy walk was worth it because I got to learn about this extremely friendly man’s life. When we arrived, he gave me a tour of his house. The house, despite being very warm and cozy, was absolutely ginormous. It was a two story house with five bedrooms, a living room, a home office, and a well-equipped kitchen.
When I went upstairs, I saw my room. On the desk I saw that there were cookies, juice, and Swiss chocolate prepared for me. I put my luggage down and he immediately said to come with him if I wanted to see something cool.
And that cool, unforgettable, magnificent thing… I will tell you about next time.
Stay tuned...there’s much more to come!
In the next episode I’ll be sharing what I saw in Yann’s house!
