My trip to the London, Paris Summer 2010 Part 1

couch-surfing through my travels then visiting my parents

We have been active in Couch-surfing since 2008 and now it was the time I tried it out by being hosted by other people.
My search of families in London and Paris yield good results...I found 2 families in London and 2 families in Paris that are willing to host us.
We landed in London and took a taxi to the address....I just have 3 kids and one huge bag....well June it is raining and cold in London. The host changed her address and forgot to update me with the new one. Lucky I asked a stranger to lend me his phone and I called her...She quickly answered and said to stay where I am and she will get me soon. Actually she moved just across the street....so no big difference...Our host was gentle and welcoming...Emma wanting to eat Chinese food so we picked some food and we ate back at the house. The next day we looked through the touristic attraction in London....
We ate different ethnic food and had the best time going through the town.....P1010466.jpgP1010465.jpgP1010459.jpgP1010453.jpgP1010451.jpgP1010450.jpgP1010448.jpgP1010447.jpgP1010444.jpg
We took the Euro star Train to Paris....Just took 2 hours and we were in Paris....Again it was so nice to be in the train with the kids....
We arrived in Paris...followed my host direction and took the under-ground and after 20minutes arrived at her place....
Again we puzzed her but no answer.... I borrowed a phone from Chinese owner....and called her....she came in less than 1 minutes and helped us to her place. We had so much fun....P1010668
