Generosity of my Hosts....
02.06.2016 - 06.06.2016
Booked the tickets way in advance I found charter airline that runs from LAX to CDG for less than $800.
The kids were so excited to go and see friends all over Europe. Leaving LAX at night and arriving Paris in the afternoon is great option when you are traveling with kids. Again I didn't check any bags. We had a total of 3 bags.
Arriving at CDG Paris was filled with emotions since our host from couch-surfers Tatiana was waiting for us. (We know Tatiana for 6 years hosted us all the time when we visit Paris). She always has smile on her face and ready to help us on anyway we want.
The kids got over the jet-lag faster than I did. They slept well and adjusted to life in Paris. My mission was that the kids speak French as much as they can. The first thing I told my kids I don't speak French so you need to do all the talking. Of-course my Son Yury was great at this task. Every time we went to the Bakery Yury did the talking paid for the baguette and the desserts. My Daughter Yuliya was shy however found friends to play at the parks where she practiced her French. Day 1 in Paris was great with dinner at Tatiana's house and playing with the cats that the kids missed. (I don't think the cats missed the kids!!!!!)
This our beginning of adventure that is lasting 5 weeks.....We will come back to Paris at the end of the trip.....
Stay Tuned to an adventure of one Mom and 2 children across Europe.
