L'abri was my first stop on my Europe trip. It is in Huemoz, Switzerland and I had a blast.
It is hard to explain the type of place L'abri is, but I will try. L'abri is a work study program. You study in the morning and do work around the village in the afternoon. I only stayed 4 days, but some people stay entire semesters. You are paired up with a tutor that guides you along whatever you decide to study. There library is huge and it has so many books and sermons. The Swiss L'abri opened in 1955 by Francis and Edith Schaeffer to those who were seeking answers to life's many questions. It is like a christian community where people come and seek Christ together while showing the community Christ. http://www.labri.org/
Here are some pictures of my visit. The mountains in the background are the Alps. They are beautiful especially for someone from Indiana. It also snowed while I was there because L'abri is up in the mountains a little bit.
