Taking the Train

We have two birthdays in July. Our son's is the 26th and our daughter just had her birthday on the 8th. Birthdays are difficult sometimes because we don't have anyone to spend them with. We're always trying to find creative ways to spend the special day and not feel sorry for the kids. So this year we're taking the train to Croatia's capital Zagreb. We've been there tons of times but we've never been on a train. So 7:26 in the morning our train takes off for the capital Zagreb.

Zagreb holds several attractions for Americans; Subway Subs, American Bookstore (all English books, although they are rather pricey), McDonalds and they even used to have bowling. We're going to eat out, shop at the book store and just act like tourists.

We're all excited and we'll tote our camera along to take some pics of our adventure.


  1. How exciting. I can't wait to see some pictures when you return. For birthdays in our house, it's just "us" as well. We normally do some sort of outing as well. Something the birthday person likes. Normally we end up at Barnes and Nobles. (bookstore) I hope you have tons of fun.

  2. Hey Tori! I knew you were from Texas, but didn't know you from the metroplex! I grew up in Burleson/Crowley area :). We now live about 15 minutes from Lake Whitney and about 1 mile from Lake Aquilla

  3. Oh how wonderful! Sounds like you have a great day planned. What fun and adventure! Hope you have a GREAT day and we'll be looking for those pictures.


  4. Tori,

    I hope you all have lots of fun. I love hearing about your life in Croatia and look forward to the pics.

    Have fun!


  5. That sounds like a great, memorable way to celebrate birthdays! Being military, we don't live anywhere near family either. We like to celebrate birthdays with just us! After all, we were the ones there the day of their birth. *Ü* We like keeping it just between us.
    Hope ya'll had an enjoyable time.
