Well after a very long day of travel and some not great sleep for most of us, we landed in Romania at about 11:45 PM on March 26! We had a driver pick us up from the airport and drop us off at the JW Marriott for our first few nights. I will tell you that bed was a very nice welcome to Romania. Jet lag AND daylight savings not so much of a welcome. Waking up on Sunday was HARD to do. But we were beyond blessed to be able to go to church at the Mihai Bravu branch. It's so wonderful to learn more about the gospel with saints all over the world!
That afternoon, we walked around some gorgeous gardens near the hotel and saw the parliament building which is the largest in the world BTW!
Monday was still very rough waking up, but we got into our new "acasa" as they say in Romania! So I thought I would give you a nice tour of our home for the next 6 months.
This is our front door. Enjoy the floral prints on the wall? We have about 18 of them throughout the two bedroom apartment. ;)
The other side of the front door. Yes, that's a washing machine next to the front door. And yes, I'm so grateful to have our own washing machine!
The view from our front door.
The living room and dining room off to the right of the kitchen.
Off to the left of the entrance are the bedrooms. The master is straight ahead. The second bedroom is on the right and the first bathroom is on the left. I like that there's a door to the bedroom area so that we can close it off for nap times!
This is the second bedroom/ the kids' bedroom.
This is the bathroom across from the kids' room. Laila thought the bidet was a sink her size when we first moved in. After all, what else could it be? Now she calls it a boy potty. Yeah... I'm going to let it stay that way. Too much explaining. Haha!
This is the master bedroom. It's a lot bigger than I thought it would be.
With lots of storage.
and an en suite bathroom. Fancy! Fancy!
This is the main reason we chose this apartment...
...we are so close to Michael's office- literally across the street. The apartment complex has a Subway, Starbucks, dry cleaners, grocery shop, and a bunch of little restaurants at the bottom. Although we don't have a dryer, or a dishwasher, we do have a housekeeper once a week which is going to spoil me rotten!
Overall, we feel extremely blessed to be here safely and to have such a great set up for our family. Now, who wants to come visit???
