Travel and Arrival

9 Commentsby   |  05.31.11  |  Zagreb, Croatia

Ok so the past 48 hours have been crazy! We tried to stay up late saturday night so we would sleep on the plane so we only got like 4 hours of sleep on saturday then we couldn’t sleep on the flight still, so the whole 9.5 hour flight across the atlantic we were awake for. Oh and we can’t forget the part where they “saw something suspicious” in my carry on and had to search it lol. We sat next to a guy from Cairo who talked to us a lot during the flight and told us about how he was on his way home to see his family. He works in oil back in Texas and he only gets to see his wife and kids 3-4 days out of the month because he has to work in the states. I watched the Tourist and the Green Hornet on the plane,had dinner and we were told by one of the german flight attendants that we looked like scandinavians! When we finally arrived at the airport in Frankfurt, Germany we had a 4 hour layover to walk around the airport shops and stretch our legs and buy a $5 bottle of coke (the Euro exchange rate is horrible) before the next flight. Frankfurt to Zagreb was only about a two hour flight and we flew right over the austrian alps which was beautiful. After two and a half days of traveling we arrived at the airport in Zagreb, got our passports stamped and were met by Roger and his oldest son Cameron who greeted us with giant smiles and beautiful flowers :) It is beautiful here in Croatia, the weather is a perfect 75 degrees and everything is bright green. We got a short little tour on our way to the house here in Mala Gorica of the little villages we passed. The Massey’s house here is absolutely stunning we have our own little guest house with a balcony which is just adorable! Last night we had a barbeque on the rooftop with several other missionary families and then we got to watch all the kids give presentations of their projects for homeschool co-op. Lots of the kids are very good artists and showed us some of their work and we listened to a girl names Lydia play fiddle for us and cameron blew our minds with his flute playing. He played a piece called Papillion which means butterfly in french we think, but he played it so well I have never heard a flute player that was that good and especially for a 12 year old. Now it is tuesday and I think I have succesfully made the transfer to the new time zone. We are about to go register at the police station in a few minutes so I’m gonna end here but am looking forward to telling all about the days to come!
