We have recently been honored with arrival of @elizabethfreund – great great granddaughter of the first owner of former Schlessinger palace, now well-known Palace Hotel Zagreb! 😊 You can read more about her story on our link in Bios.
lunch at the palace for @biglizzystyle last day in zagreb
While Croatia exudes pride in its World Cup finalists, I am experiencing my own personal pride staying here in the Palace Hotel built in the 1880’s by my great great grandfather Carl Schlessinger initially as his home it was turned i to Zagrebs first hotel just after the turn of the century. Its been very moving. Sweet and emotional - a feeling of ancestry, belonging, mixed with pride and excitement at sharing this all with Finnea. We met a manager of the hotel this morning, the lovely Matea, who asked us tell her about our family and I brought a few copies of photos for them to keep. There is a display in the lobby of a written history signed by members of my family that they discovered during recent renovations - it includes Jacques, my great grandfather, and the names of Carls other 8 children #roadtrippinwithfinnea #exploreyourroots #heritage #ancestry #croatia 🇭🇷 #onehappymamabear #gratefulheart 💖
Hyvää kansainvälistä emoji päivää! 🎉
Its 8 hours since we landed and the festivities have no sign of slowing down - Finnea and I joined the crowds up towards the main square this afternoon but it turned out it would be 6 hours before the team arrived Sounds of chants and song echo through the streets as do horns and fireworks- this is a city and country who are very proud of their team. On the news we see the same in Paris - which is our next stop. Amazing- we couldn’t have planned this! Our now world cup tour lol #croatia 🇭🇷 #worldcup2018 #roadtrippinwithfinnea #gratefulheart 💖
