A Special Treat - AdventureZ in Mexico - "The Movie!!"

Hola Amigos!!
 I have a Special Treat for all of you! If  it all goes to plan...then it should be very entertaining!!
Since the videos I made get buried in my blog as I go along...well I thought if I posted them one after the other, then they are all laid out like a "Movie" and you could see the entire 2 journeys.

AdventureZ in Mexico "THE MOVIE!"

(some of you may remember Adventures of Angel- The Movie!!) well these are basically the same videos, that Angel has her shirt on in all of that really freaked people out...I guess that living so free for 5 months in Zipolite that we forgot what prudes everyone are ...and well people had safety concerns.. and though that I was exploiting her, ...which nearly killed me, it hurt so bad to have people think like that...when all I was trying to do was share our journey with you.

Anyways, I have learned my lesson the hard way...the really hard way.  I have done a lot of soul searching and educating myself in Social Media and now I have created this blog AdventureZ in Mexico and it's doing really well...over 1200 visits since Aug 29/2010 so I am happy.

Basically I have 74 videos... I might not post them all but it will be plenty. You see I really wanted to make a movie all a long but it never came together for me and these little videos are the best I can do right now.

I am going to work on this starting today and  I'll be working backwards in a bare with me Please!!
The idea is that when they are all posted they will read forward in their natural order.
Okay so stayed tuned.
Besos y Abrazos Amigos, Paz y Amor!!

And please can I ask you a favor, to be open minded, I am not the best writer, I try...I am better with photography, so if something doesn't sound perfect when you read it...please keep that in mind, and that I always have the best intentions and I'm trying to do my bit to make this world a better, safer, more beautiful world.

Off to Mexico City and then Home!!

So this is the end of the journey! The end of our 2nd 5 month journey to Mexico. Coming home is always such an emotional time. It's so sad to leave our friends and family in Mexico. Life there it just so different, and while both times we hit the wall at 3 months (that's when you have had enough, your homesick and you want to go home) we always manage to stick it out and get thru it.

Coming home means you can drink the water from the tap! Wow! It's a habit that takes a bit to get into again, but feels so incredible.

You can put toilet paper down the toilet! Who would think that would be such a thrill!

You can take a long hot bath! Ahhhhhh! What a delicious wonderful luxury!! Five months of cold showers can be difficult at times and for a child with long hair, even more so..tempers can be short and tears fall...but Mexicans do this what are we whining about, right!

Yes coming home is fun and exciting, there's no place like home. We must never take it for granted...just like we must never take the opportunities to travel for granted.

We have been so blessed and I am so grateful...but I will be honest...I want more...I want to see the world, and share it and write about it, photograph it, video it and hopefully encourage people to travel but to be a green traveller and help people learn, help open minds, teach children tolerance, understanding, teach people that differences are beautiful, special & wonderful.

I hope that thru my photos and videos, that differences are to be embraced, to learn to love this world and everything and everyone in it, for their uniqueness and differences. I wish for understanding and harmony.

Paz y amor Amigos!
Peace & Love Friends!

Okay that's all for tonight!
