An early morning

The mountains around Rijeka seen from our flight.

My alarmclock woke me up at 4:30 a.m., too early for a normal day. But it was not a normal day today, it was the start of a new adventure, a new holiday. When I thought of that I did not mind it anymore that it was so early in the morning. I went out of my bed, did the daily routine plus packing the last minute things like my toothbrush.

At 5:30 I was in my car, on the way to Düsseldorf airport. Normally it would be one hour and a half drive, but I calculated half an hour extra for traffic jams. I picked up my sister who isn't living far from me. In the end it turned out to be quiet on the highways, even the last part when I expected rush hour. We were way too early at the airport. Good thing though was that we could check in already. We waited at the gate for a few hours.

Our German Wings airplane was exactly on time, we left at 10:35 a.m.. The flight went smooth, I catched some sleep I missed this early morning. But it was only a one hour and a half flight to Rijeka. The duration as our ride this morning. We hit Croatian ground at 12:10 p.m.. All went smooth. And at the moment we got off the stairs of the airplane, we felt the nicely summer temperatures in our face. Something we did not have back home those days.
