Back from Croatia

Our trip to Croatia was a short one day trip but very enjoyable. We traveled to the city of Zagreb, it took about 4 hours to get there. We checked into a very affordable hotel, it was clean and just big enough for us to enjoy. My favorite part of the hotel was the bath tub and it would have been the morning buffet at breakfast but since we are on the Daniel fast I wasn't able to enjoy it as much.

A beautiful lamp and building that caught my eye

The evening we arrived in Zagreb we were able to find a very nice restaurant that served an assortment of vegitarian meals, we were thrilled. Not completely satisfying or filling but thankfully I had brought a back pack full of grapes, dried fruit, nuts and some cucumber wedges.

That night Bro. Hulsman, my husband and I enjoyed a long game of travel scrabble. The girls jumped on the beds, explored every little detail of the hotel room and at the end of the night we were all very happy, tired and ready for the morning to come so that we could tour a bit and then get our well needed stamp in our pass ports.

On the cable car, headed to the oldest church in Zagreb
Aleia's new tiger face, yeah it's her way of hiding that she is really starting to be pretty shy these days. I'd say it's a terrible cover up, hopefully this phase passes as quickly as all the other ones she has gone through.

Bro. Hulsman is our aimer here in Austria, he came with us since he also needed an updated stamp in his pass port. We were successful yet again to get a stamp but it is getting more difficult each time to get through the borders. Keep us in your prayers that we are able to obtain a Visa in the near future.
