Today’s blog update is going to be a bit short because I’m sitting in a hotel lobby in Bratislava, Slovakia and it’s 10pm. We have made the almost 4-hour drive down here because tomorrow we will be going to the embassy for our 9am appointment to apply for our Czech visas. Those documents will allow us to work and live in Czech for at least 2 years so we’re hopeful all will go well.
The Lord has incredible timing because we JUST got our van today! It’s a 2009 Ford Galaxy and we are super excited about it. The whole process has been a breeze because one of the Czech Christians here named Tadek owns a car dealership and was able to find the car, setup all the insurance and licensing and even import the car from Germany. He brought the car to us today and showed us how everything works and we’re so thankful for this wonderful tool. We took it for a “test drive” to Slovakia today and it runs great and is just a nice car for us to have our whole family in.
We had dinner at a traditional Slovakian restaurant tonight so that was fun. Here’s a few photos from the restaurant and then a shot of our hotel. I’m tired… goodnight!
