"Around The World in ...." Irina80's Profile

Travel is my passion, if I could I'd be travelling 24/7/365...alas, I have a pretty good job which I also happen to love and enjoy. The good thing is I have a month of vacation time wich I do use to the last minute of it. Of course it's not enough so occasionally I get "emergency" situations such as: trouble with some cousin of mine, favorite auntie gets sick, etc. :)) ....cruel, agree but I'm a travel junkie...I'm weak. A friend of mine who's just as crazy as I am has a much tougher situation at work thus has already "buried" half her relatives (mostly in-laws:))...so don't judge me too hard:)
Dear God, please keep my boss and other evil creatures from discovering this page

Hmmm...after starting working on my Belize page I got this idea to show different/opposite sides of the places I'm visiting...The Good, The Bad, The Ugly, so to speak. In no way I am trying to say I didn't like something, I enjoyed every one of my trips and will treasure the memories for the rest of my life.

...Latest update: there won't be any updates for a while, I'm playing with now everyone's favorite toy - Facebook, apparently am not good at multi-tasking, trying to split between VT, Facebook, work, new house, dog, new love, etc. I'm spreading myself thin:), something's gotta go for a while. I'll be back though.

The different sides of "moi"

I admit it, I bought an all-inclusive package deal to Playa del Carmen, so sue me:)), but I needed total relaxation and rejuvenation after a project gone bad at work. I enjoyed it so much that I may even go there again one day.

Class IV on Pacuare river...ppl wonder y I'm so happy on that pic...I'm not actually I'm screaming in horror

Heavy drinking in Belfast:))...common, have u ever seen a Russian refusing a good booze...let me know if u c 1:))

My favorite passtime - ripping the slopes!!

Winter comes and goes....somewhere else but Texas, there is always a freaking summer in Texas

I put a few pictures below to keep my Utah memories fresh and cool in the heat of Texas summer:)...oh and, UTAH IS BETTER THEN COLORADO!!!...there, I said it:):

Heavy clouds waiting to explode with the famous "Utah powder"
