The hidden Gem of Mexico

At the airport thy lost our Luggage... But that made us to slow down a little bit.....
The next day we got our bag....We headed to the mountains....Wow....Mountains, lakes, rivers, breath taking place.....
We walked into a hotel with swimming pool it only cost 20$ a night....What a deal....
We went and saw all the temples that survived thousands of years...... Wow....Everything survived inside a huge jungle.....
our guide in the jungle was 10years old boy that knew many things about the plants, trees, birds, animals.....

Traveling to Guatemala April 2009

First stop Antigua

I don't recall why we chose to go to Guatemala...Either by recommedation from our french couch-surfer or we just got tickets on sale.
It was Spring break...March/April 2009 Yury is almost 2 years....we still carry him on our back-bag.
The first advice that we got is once you arrived at the airport leave Guatemala as fast as possible and head to Antigua.
I am happy we did so....Antigua is such a colorful place... next to an active Volcano...you see many Cathedrals and Churches...
we headed to the Black-cat hotel that we knew about from a couch-surfer.
Antigua is lively city in the day and at night.....most of the food vendors come at nights....we ate the most delicious food of Meat, Rice and beans,
Had the great mocha/ice-cream/cake all in one glass......

we went every day to different tour...the first one was the Volcano....Oh mine it was active Volcano with the Lava,,,,
Bader was brave enough to be in the top and walk next to it....I didn't take a chance with the kids.
The following day we got our belongings and we moved to San Marcus......
It is such nice lake....we found a hotel....very fancy one and we explored Panajachels and the area.

My trip to Paris June 2010 Part 2

We met friends from Emma's school and Friends through couch-surfing

In Paris we met a friend from Emma school...we spend the day with them at the park.
We went to the famous Champs-Elysees. There we had ice-cream and strolled around.
At the Park, the kids went on some rides, They jumped on the Trampolen.
We spent 4 days in Paris then we met Our friend Mary and her boyfriend and went to Luxmborg Palace. There we rented a mini boat
and with stick Yury pushed it through the tiny lake.P1010630.jpgP1010627.jpgP1010626.jpgP1010632.jpg

Then we headed to another hosting Family outside of Paris. I was astounded to find a huge house and the family gave us the first floor for ourselves.

Our friend waiting for us at the train station Then spending s days before heading home to L.A

It was such a nice ride...I loved the trains across Scandanvian countries....you can go anywhere with good sale tickets and no need for a car.
We made to our friends house...Sunday and our departure to Los Angeles will be that Tuesday.....So my friend Emma a school teacher arrnaged for us Monday to be at her school. There we have to tell the students where we come from...and tell them about our background for 2 hours....
It was o.k experience....Hope the students were not bored with my speech....

The next day we hosted someone from Australia through couch-surfing....this our first encounter with this kind of experience.

I loved being at my friends' house.... We chatted and we relaxed from our Journey... we strolled across the cafes in Denmark...
We then reserved our tickets through the phone to Boars Sweden for Sunday late Afternoon.
