Travel pages STILL growing little by little!
I love to travel and I've been to many countries & towns as I started travelling with my family when I was a kid. Now it's been over 10 years since I started traveling on my own and visiting friends around the world, which I enjoy a lot..... and I hope to keep on visiting many new places in the years to come. I studied International Relations and speak several languages, so I also love to meet people from other countries who come to mine and to practice my skills whenever I get to travel abroad, besides of learning other new things, of course!
My pages include comments about my trips and as many tips as I've been able to gather, as well as photos taken by me or my family/friends (most of them) and some that I've borrowed from public websites.... I hope all this can help someone during their trips! I'm continuosly updating them, although I don't get the chance to make long trips to far away places as often as I would like to (sniff!!), but I'm doing my best to include as much useful information as possible!
My last trip just ended yesterday (September 2011); I was lucky to attend my very first BIG VT MEET in my favorite city ever: PARIS!!!! My hubby came with me -- it was our first major trip together and it took me quite some work to convince him to come along -- and we also visited Budapest, Rome and Barcelona during this wonderful 3-week trip. I already started and will continue posting my newest tips, updates and pictures little by little, please check back for more info! Hope you will find something useful for your future trips, so you can enjoy them as much as I enjoyed mine!
Earlier in the year (March) we visited a very nice and dear destination to me within Mexico: Puerto Vallarta, a superb beach town in my country!!! Lovely town, nice weather, a wonderful coastal destination for a great vacation! It had been over 4 years since my last trip there (Oct 2006) and before then 8 years went by before I could go back to this place, but I love it and wish to keep going back again and again!! I am slowly building my Vallarta page as well so please come back -- after this last trip I have more stuff to share........
Before that, my hubby and I made a few short trips within the country as well; we visited one of my favorite cities twice: Morelia, and we stopped by the Monarch Butterfly sanctuary once as well (pages are still in progress!). We also visited Aguascalientes and San Miguel de Allende, this latter a +/- 3-hour drive from Mexico City and a very nice weekend destination (a foreign tourist favorite, in fact). I posted the few tips I could gather there during our short stay.
My previous major trip (2007) was a wonderful tour around Europe (including Sweden, Finland, Poland, Czech Republic, France and Italy). Back in 2005 my trips included a long journey around northern USA and south eastern Canada, then a 5-day trip to Acapulco, the closest beach destination we have from Mexico City, and which I'm sure you've heard about many times... So I'm updating that page now, too! Hope you find useful stuff there!
Previously - in 2002 - I spent a month in Europe (visiting Finland, France, Germany and Spain) and before that I lived a whole month in Rome in 2000. The previous years I traveled extensively with my family to several destinations in Europe, USA, the Caribbean and Central America. My future dream destinations are: Santorini in Greece, Egypt, India, Buenos Aires in Argentina, Australia (where my brother lives) and New Zealand (where some dear ex coworkers live), Cuba (if Fidel doesn't die soon! LOL).... and who knows what else I can think of later on!
The whole VT site is cool, enjoy it!
