Mountains or Water?

Important question: Mountains or Water? Which one most fits you? Which region would you choose to live?

This is one of the random icebreakers questions I liked to ask. My response in the past has usually been water. There is something about the sweet blue crashing waves that just makes my heart swell with peace and contentment. That’s while living in Holland, Michigan – the beach just being a run away – has been great. With that said – I have always been on the line with the question because mountains embody such majestic beauty and adventures.

So what’s my answer now?

My answer is Cape Town. Not only does Cape Town have beautiful mountains that have created me with amble opportunities to hike, but is also has the beautiful blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean. So I choose both – I choose Cape Town.

Both these waters and these mountains have created many good adventures for me to hike, swim, and explore. Check out the photos below and Table Mountain Hike video here.

My name is John Luke Hawkins and I am a sophomore at Hope. I am from the small agriculture town of Tipton, Indiana. I love my new Home sweet Hope. Currently, I double majoring in Communications and Religion. When I am not doing homework (too often), I might be working one of my jobs as a Library Worker, Overnight Host, or Student Blogger. If I am not doing homework or work, I am probably doing something with my numerous organizations that I am involved in such as Dance Marathon, Gospel Choir, Intramurals, Nykerk, and a small group. If I come up with free time amongst all that, then I like to run, free dance, self-reflect, go on adventures, and spend time with friends. Hope College has really helped me discover who I am. Here it is in seven words: energetic, organized, contemplative, determined, silly, social, and intentional.
