My trip to Paris June 2010 Part 2

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

20 °C

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....

Going from Riga to Luthunia...Then to Poland

we enjoyed the company at Youth Hostel

We arrived to Luthunia....We quickly realized that not much to see in this town.
We checked in hotel for half day then took midnight bus to Poland.
This bus ride was the scariest I had...You can not see anything....everything is foggy.
I am so happy we made it alive. I give credit to the bus driver that he knows what he was doing....It seems that we went through a forest.
My husband can't recall much b/c he slept....I am the only one my eyes were wide open all the 6 hours bus ride.
We Arrived in port city called Gdansk....It was such relief to get out of the bus and walk through the city looking for hotel.
We were not lucky for the first 1 hour looking for hotel/hostel....Until old woman who doesn't speak any English helped us to find Hostel.
At this Hostel we had the best experience ever...we met travelers from all over Europe...We met Luis from Cuba...It was such a nice experience to meet him.
Also two German travelers helped us to book our flight to Malmo Sweden. By the way the flights are very cheap....we been lucky for the 4 of us at that time with WIZ airline cost us 150$.....

We moved from Tartu TO RIGA

LATVIA.....RIGA

We made it through a bus ride to RIGA. It is a beautiful town....Even better than Tallinn.... We loved the flowers that the people carry in their hands.
Every corner we looked there were many flower Shops and locals young and old buys beautiful flowers....This is the first impression we got from the city.
Again the food was amazing...The locals are very proud of their food and serve it with big smile on their faces.
