Dobro došli kući – Day One

Posted in General issues |

Our journey began as we collected our bags at the Zagreb International Airport. We were greeted by the FOI staff with a sign that read :” Dobro došli kući”  (Welcome Home).  This was a sign that was created a year again by one of our scholars Laura Adarve.

It was a great feeling to be able to introduce a new set of scholars to the amazing hospitality of Varaždin.  After we picked up the additional scholars from DePaul University we loaded up the cars and made our way to check in to our housing.  When we opened the doors with we greeted with a stocked refrigerator and lavender as a welcome gift. Once we were settled, we headed for lunch at Restaurant Park.

Our first day in Varaždin was more than we imagined.  After months of preparing, it is great to finally be here. At the end of a long day, we headed back to the dorms and prepared for the next day.
