Day One - Amsterdam; Split, Croatia; Bosnia-Hercegovina

Bleary-eyed, we admire tulips at Amsterdam's Schiphol Airport.
We finally arrive in Split, Croatia - no jetway and terra firma!
That's Gail with her roll-on, filled with provisions.
Elated, we made it! Can't believe we're here in Croatia.
The cliff-hanging drive along the Adriatric Sea was spectacular!
Jet lagged, T & Diane zoning out on the bus.
Dalmatian Coast with its curious house-building construction.
3 hrs later, our first sight of St. James Church,Medjugorje (!)
Dinner: soup, bread, salad, roast chicken, wine.
Ana shows us where the apparitions began in 1981.
Sleep-deprived, but excited, we pilgrims, listened attentively.
Apparition Hill, also known as Podbrdo where it all began.
The visionary, Ivan, once lived simply in this house, 23yrs ago.
Ana showed us the lay of the land & the way to the church.
We stopped at a garden where Mother Mary appeared...
and allowed the children of the village to touch her dress.
We stopped in a shop to buy medals & cards.
Votive candles ablaze at the wooden cross, St. James Church.
St. James at night...before the awe-inspiring Adoration service.
The Risen Christ sculpture w/ water mysteriously seeping from it
