It's Mom and Dad day!

Woke, got dressed, went to the lobby to get the shuttle, and 5 minutes after it was supposed to arrive, asked at the front desk why it was late. His response: it left on time, you're late. Lesson: go stand outside, because the shuttle doesn't come close to the door or in so you can't see it. As a result, I was at FRA only an hour and a half before the flight, which really isn't enough time with baggage. I participated in the Airport Dash. I may or may not have joined a shorter line I wasn't supposed to be in. Ultimately, by the time I was at immigration, another person on my flight used the 'my flight boards in 5 minutes" card to cut the line, but I knew I'd be ok, so I ended my participation in the race. It all worked out as the flight was a little delayed anyway. Landing in Croatia reminded me of St. Kitts in that the planes just kind of sit out on some big open area, and you take stairs down them and into a tiny little immigration hall. Plus, it is a bright, sunny day, and there are mountains in the background. It's not exactly the same, but somewhat reminiscent as the size is similar. My flight got delayed, but the guy sent by the tour company was waiting for me. I felt like such a VIP, arriving and seeing a sign with my name on it. He drove me to the hotel (Adria) through the one road they have. It's gorgeous. I can totally see why people say this is a must-see beautiful place. The mountains on the right and the sea on the left provide a view that is hard to beat. The hotel is built into the mountainside, so the entry floor is 0, and all of the guest rooms are on floors with negative numbers. The view from my room on floor -5 was incredible. The buffet dinner here was included as part of our tour. The ambiance is that of a very fancy restaurant- tablecloths, a great view, friendly waiters, but the food was cafeteria-quality. It didn't matter though, we were thoroughly enjoying the view, and the food was only secondary.
