Blog post by Tina Winterlik © 2011


Wow, the world is SUCH A AMAZING place right now!
We are living in a GLORIOUS time! All these grants are becoming available and it's because of Social Media. Everybody is sharing the LOVE!! It's beautiful.

I love what these people say about this generation, getting out there, learning sharing. That's my goal with Adventurez in Mexico. Teaching about the beauty of the environment, the people, the traditions and culture. Sharing it with my daughter, to enlighten her and me.

It was always my dream to travel the world and work for National Geographic. Now because of Social Media look at what's Possible.

So check out this contest. Super Cool. You get $600 to travel. $600 is a lot if you know how to budget and can pay the rent for 3 months or more in a foreign country. So if your traveling for 10 weeks or more this fall, your going to want to check this out.

    Mexican Souvenirs

    Blog post by Tina Winterlik © 2011


    These are some of the beautiful souvenirs we brought home from Oaxaca. We bought alot of chocolate, but ate almost all of it before we got home. We had Hot Chocolate every day for breakfast. It was delicious.

    We spent 17 days in Oaxaca. It was fantastic. I feel so blessed that we experienced it. We loved walking up to Santa Domingo each day, exploring the area. We visited Monte Alban and saw parades and watch the Silent Procession during Semana Santa, an incredibly moving experience.

    Angel loved it, she learned where chocolate came from and it was the highlight of the day going in and having a little sample. The markets are easy to get to and the Zocalo is beautiful. Lots of gorgeous architecture, especially the church. The Cathedral in the Zocalo has beautiful windows with angels etched in them.

    The handmade embroidered clothes are breath taking and so are the rugs and wooden toys. There is so much to see in Oaxaca. I highly recommend you all visit Oaxaca City.
