The first night we stayed in Zurich, was a absolute
nightmare crazy time!. We had reservations at the Hotel Hottingen-recommended by the mission home. The airport car-rental lady was kind enough to give us
a map and directions to the hotel. Somehow (By the Grace of God), we managed to find this place after midnight in downtown Zurich!! All the signs were strange to us on the roads-since we'd never been out of the U.S. *Elder was in another town...so we were on our own. The hotel locked it's doors at eleven p.m. and we were left to wait out front till morning...in our rental car:) Luckily, the seats
were heated! Three a.m.-we started searching for a restroom, Four a.m.-I was freezing in the backseat, Five a.m. I was so mad that all the hotels were closed and six a.m. I spotted the manager walking in!! I was so happy to meet them. We unloaded, called Elder and ate breakfast:) Bread with Nuttela-MMmmm! Then, we finally got to see our missionary...we had quite a reunion (even if we hadn't slept in two days! What a fantastic moment:) We all later went to the mission home for a testimony meeting and to meet the mission president and his lovely wife. I think our adrenalin kicked in-as we had the most spiritual meeting I've ever been to in my whole life. I was so grateful to be safe, surrounded with love, and enjoying the moments with my handsome hubby and cute son. Pure heaven!
This blue van carried the missionaries luggage down the hill-back to our hotel. The Elders all walked down (we were staying in the same place). This was their last night together and their room was right across from ours! How lucky is that??
