The view from our room at the Valamar Dubrovnik President hotel
Good morning from sunny Croatia! I can’t even begin to tell you how happy I am to be here (and to be alive), after such a horrible experience on the plane yesterday. I am not trying to be over-dramatic, but I literally thought our plane was going down. The flight seemed to be fine, a little turbulence here and there, nothing out of the ordinary. All of a sudden the plane drops (I don’t know how far it dropped) and it looks like we are about to nose-dive from the sky. Everything happened in slow motion. I have an image stuck in my mind of what I saw at that moment, and that will unfortunately stay with me forever. Austin and I remember seeing our tea in mid-air, the lights flickered off, and everyone was screaming. I screamed for my life… and in that moment I thought to myself ”I’m going to die”. It was one of the worst experiences I’ve ever went through. After it happened the pilot explained it was just very bad turbulence and that it was over, but that couldn’t help me stop bawling crying the whole rest of the way. All I could do was hold Austin’s hand and pray that everything was going to be okay. I’m naturally very uneasy when it comes to flying so this will not make it any easier the next time I have to board a plane. But I’m so happy we landed safely!! Thank you God.
Our day quickly turned from a nightmare to a dream when we arrived here at the hotel. We’re staying at the Valamar Dubrovnik President hotel, which is located on the western side of the Babin Kuk peninsula in Dubrovnik. We were greeted with a glass of ice cold champagne and cold hand towels. When we checked in, the reception has informed us that our room had been double-upgraded. The room and the hotel itself is absolutely stunning and I can’t wait to spend the next three days here. Here’s to Croatia! Talk soon <3
