De Paso por Nazareth/Nazareth Village

Jesus’s hometown is a special place, a replica of the First Century Nazareth Village brings to life a Galilean village as it was 2000 years ago.  Once you book your ticket (the tours are small), you will be able to learn from the past. Visit the cultivated terraces and vineyards, learn about a working olive press and wine press. talk to the ancient characters from the Bible such as Abraham (volunteers). Feel the ambiance and the presence of God while listen to a very knowledgeable tour guide, after all, a trip to Israel isn’t complete if you don’t learn the history behind it since the beginning. The Nazareth Village is a Christian non-profit organization that works with the help of volunteers to spread God’s Word.

Jesus paso gran parte de su ninez en pueblo llamado Nazareth, esta villa es una replica bastante completa de lo que una ves fuera una villa Galileana hace 2000 anos atras. Una vez hayas comprado tu ticket, y te recomiendo que lo hagas con antelacion,porque los tours son pequenos; podras visitar las terrazas cultivadas con olivos, podras aprender acerca del proceso del prensado de los olivos para hacer el vino y tambien podras conversar con personajes tan importantes de la Biblia como lo fue Abraham (son trabajadores voluntarios). Podras sentir la presencia de Dios a medida que que vas escuchando al guia. Creo que un viaje a Israel no seria completo sino entenderiamos su historia desde sus comienzos. La Villa Nazareth es una organizacion sin fines de lucro que trabaja gracias a la ayuda de voluntarios para dar a conocer la Palabra de Dios.

Is Wadi Rum in your bucket list? Esta Wadi Rum en tu lista de viajes?

I’ll try to convince you that Wadi Rum should be on your bucket list.

The trip is one in  a life time. Red sand dunes, jeep safari , camel rides, hot air balloons rides over the desert, and lots of culture awaits you in Jordan. Jordanians, on the other hand, are friendly and willing to teach you their dances and how they cook at one of their many Bedouin campsite. We stayed at Bait Ali Camp and couldn’t have a better stayed anywhere else. Great location. We were treated with respect. The place is clean, full of activities and the tents are in good conditions( I do suggest you take your towels and your soap, shampoo). The food is delicious and the have music every night. When it gets dark, we get to see how the food in done underground cook(I particularly enjoyed this experience very much) Wine, excellent food and good company is all you need for a warmer night (the desert gets cold at night)

Tratare de convencerte para que pongas a Wadi Rum en tu lista de viajes.

Este es un viaje para una ves en la vida. las arenas rojas del desirerto de Wadi Rum son unicas. Aqui tienes todo tipo de actividades desde paseos en camellos, safaries en jeeps, paseos en globos aereos hasta escalar formaciones rocosas preciosas. Tambien compartir una cultura unica es genial. Los jordanos, por otro lado, son amables y serviciales. Comparten sus tradiciones de forma respetuosa. De su comida, que les dire? es deliciosa. la experiencia de verlos cocinar los alimentos debajo de la tierra fue fabulosa. Esto lo precenciamos en uno de los tantos campamentos beudinos que tiene Wadi Rum, el nuestro Bait Ali fue maravilloso, con muy buena localizacion, hospitalidad y servicio ( si te sugierro lleves tu toalla , shampoo y jabon). En la noche, optas por un buen vino, excelente comida y tu mejor compania y haces que la noche sea mas placentera (el desirto epuede llegar a ser muy frio en las noches).

Day Trip to Bruges-Un dia en Brujas

 

While in Belgium, we visited Brussels and Bruges.  Today I will tell you a little bit about Bruges.

A fast train ride from Brussels took us to Bruges.  In about one hour and ten minutes we were there. Getting to the city center from the train terminal was also very easy and a pleasant walk through cobble streets, small, cute houses, canals, and cozy chocolate stores always well decorated. Depend of the season and holidays, you will be able to enjoy the designs this artists make in their store windows.  But perhaps what we liked most, was their famous Lake of Love. Full of swans, and  with its Lovers Bridge, the Lake of Love is a perfect place for picnics and romance. Lush vegetation, gardens and a beautiful park around the area makes the Lake a very desirable place. Several restaurants, some, facing the lake, are in this area as well. Great option for lunch and or dinner.

We continued our walking through the beautiful city streets, passing the church of Our lady Bruges, then we decided on a boat ride. Only 7 euros per person! Great Experience! Lucky us, the boat driver was an excellent historian, well known of the city and very funny.

We stooped for lunch and enjoyed some Belgium beers.

Later that afternoon, we visited Salvador Dali exhibition, (entrance 10.00 euros) and admired his fantastic collection of art and statues.

Bruges is a city to get lost and walk without specific direction, without making plans or write an itinerary . It’s a city to relax and breath the culture of the locals, a city to flavor chocolates and beer, to explore at your own pace, not rush is allow. Take your time to feel the ambiance of the place and enjoy the magic of the city.

Bruges is a worth day trip from Brussels. Highly recommended!

 

 

Cuando estuvimos en Belgica, fuimos a Bruselas y a Brujas. De este ultimo encantador pueblo, es del que hoy te voy a contar.

Comenzare diciendo que el viaje en tren rapido desde Bruselas, es muy sencillo, solo una hora y diez minutos y ya te encuentras en Brujas. Llegar al centro de la ciudad desde la terminal tambien es facil y placentero ya que al caminar por la calles empedradas de Brujas, podras deleitarte con sus casitas, canales y variadas tiendas de golocinas; estan son decoradas segun la ocasion ya sea navidad, primavera o cualquier otra fecha festiva. Lo cierto es que es encantador el poder disfrutar de estas vidrieras vestidas para todo de eventos, pero quizas lo que mas me gusto de Brujas, es su famoso lago del Amor. Un lago lleno de cisnes, un rincon perfecto para el romance y un buen picnic. Rodeado de gran vegetacion, jardines, cerca de un hermoso parque hace que el Lago del Amor sea una atraccion que no debes pasar por alto. Tambien la zona del lago cuenta con restaurantes, algunos de ellos con vistas al lago.

Continuamos nuestro paseo por Brujas pasando por la impresionante iglesia de Nuestra senora de Brujas, mas tarde decidimos dar un paseo en bote. Por solo 7 euros por personas, disfrutamos de los canales y las incomparables vistas de los edificios mediovales de la ciudad. Para mayor suerte para nosotros, nuestro capitan habia sido historiador antes de ser capitan y nos proporciono muchisima informacion sobre esta hermosa ciudad. Fue una linda experiencia.

Nos detuvimos un rato para disfrutar de las cerveza belgica y ligero almuerzo.

Mas tarde, nos encontrabamos visitando las obras de Salvador Deli, por un precio rasonable de 10 euros por persona.

Brujas es una ciudad para perderse en ella, para relajarse, para caminar sin planes. Solo con disfrutar de su ambiente y respirar la cultura y la tranquilidad del lugar, te sentiras como salido de un cuento. Saborea sus chocolate y disfruta una cerveza belgica, no apresures tu estancia aqui. Brujas vale la pena asi sea en un viaje de un solo dia. Te lo recomiendo grandemente.

 

 

 

 

Can’t Miss Spots in Paris| Lugares que no te debes perder de Paris

Tuileries Garden and Palace : It’s the perfect place to relax! Full of bloom gardens, this place is for those who enjoy nature, long walks, stroll children, or just sit in one of the many restaurants. A park surrounding with tall trees and birds.

Los jardines y el palacio de Tuileries: Es el lugar perfecto para relajarse. Con sus arboles florecidos, este lugar es para aquellos amantes de la naturaleza, de las largas caminatas y paseos de los pequenos, tambien puedes sentarte en uno de sus tantos restaurantes y ver la gente pasar. Un parque rodeado de arboles y pajarillos.

Notre-Dame: The cathedral is located on the right side of the River, opposite to the Latin Quarter.

La Catedral de Notre-Dame esta localizada en el lado derecho del rio a la altura del Barrio Latino, pero opuesto a este.

  Latin Quarter (on the left bank of Seine River). It’s an excellent place to eat french food or any other. Beautiful and cozy streets complete the perfect  ambiance from this part of the city.

Barrio Latino (a mano izquierda del rio Siena) Aqui puedes encontrar cualquier tipo de comidas, incluyendo la francesa. Es un barrio precioso y con callecitas muy agradables en esta parte de la ciudad. 

Eiffel Tower: Perhaps one of the most visited sight in the world! If you think is beautiful during the day, wait until you see it at night! Amazing!!!!!

La Torre Eiffel: Es quizas una de las estructuras mas visitadas del mundo. Si piensas que es hermosa de dia, espera a la noche y te encontraras con un espectaculo sencillamente maravilloso.

Montmartre: This place is a neighborhood near Moulin Rouge and far from the Seine River, but its worth to visit it. The Basilica of Sacre-Coeur sits on a hill and you can have a nice view of the neighborhood of Montmatre from up there.

El Barrio de Montmatre is una vecidad cerca del Cabaret Molino Rojo y lejos del rio Siena, sin embargo visitarlo vale la pena. La Basilica de Sacre-Coeur se encuentra ubicada en una elevacion desde la cual puedes tener una vista muy bonita del barrio Montmatre.

Louvre Museum and Plaza and Galleries: Everything in one same place. With easy access you can go underground and enjoy Louvre all day long. It is huge! Just try to get your entrance tickets ahead of time. Lines are very long.

El Museo del Louvre, la plaza donde se encuentra y las galerias debajo del mismo te robaran todo un dia para explorarlo. Es Inmenso! Trata de comprar las entradas con antelacion ya que las lineas son muy largas.

 

Champs-Elysees: Another nice spot for long walks is this 1.9 kilometers long avenue. Arc of Triomphe is located along the way.

La avenida de los Campos Eliseos es otro agradable lugar para ir de caminata en Paris. Tiene una extension de 1.9 kilometros y en ella puedes encontrarte con El Arco del triunfo.

 Views of the Sienna River: Most of Paris tourist attraction are located along the Seine River(left &right) with many bridges that cross to either side, that’s why is very pleasant to just grab your wine in one hand and your lover on the other, and stroll both sides. Make as many stops as possible to enjoy the boats passing by. Take lots of pictures. Enjoy and breath the moment.

Las Vistas del Rio Siena: La mayor parte de las atracciones turisticas de Paris se encuentran a ambas orillas del Rio Siena con facil acceso  a cada uno de los lados por su gran cantidad de puentecillos; es por ello que se hace facil y muy placentero dicho paseo. Te recomiendo una copa de vino en una mano, mientras que con la otra sostengas la de tu amor y paseen sin apuro. Hagan numerosas paradas, disfruten los botes que continuamente pasan y respiren el momento. 

Alexander||| Bridge: Connect the Champs-Elysees with the are of Eiffel Towers. It is a photo spot that photographers like to use. Has beautiful architecture. At night is another impressive piece of art. Very recommended view from here.

El Puente Alexander||| conecta La avenida de Los Campos Eliseos con el area de La Torre Eiffel. Es un lugar para fotografias por excelencia. El Puente es precioso y es un lugar favorito para los amantes de tomar fotos por su impresionante arquitectura, todo una obra de arte sobretodo en las noches cuando esta iluminado. Es muy recomendable su visita.

Down the Canyon in mules| Bajando el Cañon en mulos

IMG_2825Despite its popularity, the Grand Canyon is not the largest canyon on Earth. With an average depth of 5,280 feet and length of 277 smiles, it comes in a distant second to the Yarlung Tsangpo Grand Canyon in the Himalays, which boasts a depth of 17,567 feet and a length of 308 miles. However, it still takes tourists from one two three weeks to travel the length of the Grand Canyon via the Colorado River and because I am not a risky person at all, my adventure was limited to a day visit to The Grand canyon from Las Vegas, Nevada. (the pictures are mine, so feel free to pin them)

A pesar de su popularidad, El Gran Cañon o Cañon del Colorado NO es el mas grande de este planeta. Con una profundidad de de 5,280 pies y una longitud de 277 millas, viene siendo el segundo mas grande despues de Yarlung Tsangpo Grand Canyon en el Himalaya, el cual cuenta con una profundidad de 17,567 pies y una longitude de 308 millas. Sin embargo, para los turistas que quieran recorrerlo, les tomaria unas dos a tres semanas de viaje haciendolo por el Rio Colorado y como yo no soy tan arriesgada en mis aventuras, lo mio fue un simple paseo desde Las Vegas, Nevada hasta el Cañon del Colorado, experiencia inolvidable que llevo grabada en mi ser.  ( las fotos son mias,  asi que sientete libre de usarlas en tus murales de Pinterest)IMG_2827

From Las Vegas, there are different tour companies that will take you to this impressive hole in the ground, helicopter tours, tours by bus, you can even stay in the hotel they have over the cliff and also the Railway tour, they all bring  amazing views and memories. I went on my own, while stopping at Hoover Dam, having lunch in an Indian village, visiting the hotel and going down the Canyon in a mule. Scaryyyy!!!! These animals are not afraid to stop by the edge of the cliff, so I didn’t even blink. The truth is that I didn’t go all the way down, just a little, to the surface again,  but that was enough adventure for me, for one day.

Desde Las Vegas, existen diferentes compañias que te llevan y traen al Grand Canyon, estan los tours en helicoptero, en buses, donde tambien puedes hacer la combinacion con el hotel y pasar la noche disfrutando de las emocionantes vista y esta tambien el tren. Crea tu propia memoria de ese viaje como mas te guste. Yo fui por mi cuenta, pare en la presa Hoover Dam, almorze en una villa bastante primitiva, visite el hotel por mi cuenta y luego, baje al Cañon en un mulo. Escalogfriante!!!! Estos animals no le temen al precipicio, y se detienen en el border del mismo, ahi es donde yo no me movia ni para pestañar. Lo cierto es que no bajamos hasta el fondo, solo un poco y te devuelves a la superficie. Para mi fue suficiente  aventura por un dia.IMG_3661

If you are visiting The Canyon on your own, you can easily drive around the north and the south rim, there are several pullouts for visitors. And the impressive change of colors of the rocks. There is also the The Grand Canyon Skywalk which is a horseshoe-shaped bridge with a glass walkway, there is always a line to get on it, but it is so worth it. And last, but not least, if you want to explore more in depth the bottom of the Canyon, get on a rafting adventure to the Colorado River. The Grand Canyon of Arizona desert should be added to your bucket list!!!

Al visitar el Cañon por tu cuenta, podras bordearlo en tu auto y parar en los miradores preparados para los visitantes, y disfrutar los cambios en los colores de las piedras, tambien esta la atraccion del Mirador|Puente del Piso de Cristal. Impresionante!!! aunque siempre hay linea ya que es un numero limitado de personas los que pueden subirse a el a una misma ves. Vale la pena esperar un poco. Y ya por ultimo si quieres explorar un poco mas a fondo, esta el rafting por el Rio Colorado. El Cañon del Colorado, Arizona es algo que debes añadir a tu bucket list!!

 

Venice: A city on the water.

Italia 2014 448I know everybody says that to get lost in Venice is the best way to see it and guess what? I think the same way. Venice is simple. All you need is to get rid of your watch and enjoy the walk. Take many pictures, wear a mask, get on a gondola and sip some good coffee near the water. What can be better than that?

Se que todos dicen que lo mejor en Venecia es pederse por sus calles y saben que? Estoy de acuerdo. Venecia es sencilla. Lo unico que necesitas es  soltar el reloj y disfrutar caminar por sus callejuelas. Tomar muchas fotografias, probarte una de sus mascaras, subirte a una gondola y disfrutar un buen café. ¿Que puede competir con eso?

Bridge of Sighs Puente de los Suspiros

Puente de los Suspiros

 

Unfortunally for me, I went to Venice in March when it was still raining and everything closed early in the night, so my time was limited. My advise to you is: spend time in Venice. It is so worth it!!!

No tuve la suerte de ir a Venecia con buen clima, muy al conntrario para mi, los dia fueron lluviosos y los lugares cerraban temprano, por eso les recomiendo tomense su tiempo en Venecia. ¡Vale tanto la pena!

How to get to Venice?

Cruises stop and depart from Venice’s Port, but I got there by train. There are tons of combinations of trains to and from Venice from other cities in Italy.

¿Como llegar a Venecia?

Los cruceros llegan y salen del Puerto de Venecia, pero yo lo hice en tren. Hay miles de combinaciones de trenes desde y hacia Venecia desde muchas ciudades italianas.

San Marco Piazza

San Marco Piazza

Where did I stay?

Venice accommodations go from a small hostel to a luxury hotel, I stayed in a small hotel near San Marco Piazza with walking distance to all the main streets, Rialto Bridge, St. Mark’s Basilica, a blow glass show and a water taxi stop. ( I did it like this due to the time of the year I went(rainy season), but you can stay anywhere since everything thing can be seen by foot and water taxis stop frequently)

¿Donde me hospedo?

St Mark's Basilica

St Mark’s Basilica

La estancia en Venecia varia desde pequeños hoteles hasta hoteles de lujo, yo me que de en un pequeño hotel cerca de la Plaza San Marcos, desde donde podia caminar hasta las calles principals que me guiaban al Rialto Bridge, a la Basilica de St. Mark, y a la parada del taxi. (lo hice de esta forma debido a la epoca de lluvia en que fui, pero puedes hospedarte donde quieras ya que toda Venecia se puede recorrer a pie, donde quiera hay paradas para taxis acuaticos)

What else to do?

Visit Murano and Burano Islands.

Visit Venice during famous carnival (Carnevale di Venezia)

Wear one of their famous elaborated masks.

Enjoy a pizza and an Italian coffee.

¿Que mas hacer?

¿Ventajas o Desventajas? Advantages or Disadvantages?

Me emocionan los viajes, absolutamente TODOS, pero dentro de mis favoritos, estan los viajes por carretera.

Creanlo o no, me aterran los aviones,CANADA 442y  la altura, desde el despegue hasta el aterrizaje, es por eso que aunque disfruto muchisimo viajar, no es menos cierto que solo el hecho de subirme al avion me pone los pelos de punta. Solo me relajo cuando llego sana y salva. Los viajes en auto te proporcionan tanto ventajas como desventajas y no estan concebidos para que a todos nos guste.

Decidelo tu mismo.

Ventajas de los viajes por carretera

  • Son mucho mas economicos (tu decides donde parar a comer, en lugares mas o menos costosos)
  • Dispones de tu tiempo como mas te plasca
  • Recorres muchisimo mas territorio por lo cual puedes apreciar los paisajes con mas calma.
  • Es adjustable para cada miembro de la familia desde el mas pequeno hasta el mas viejo.
  • Haces las paradas que te apetescan y cuantas veces quieras.
  • Sientes gran libertad
  • No pagas equipaje
  • Tu decides quien viajara contigo
Desventajas :
  • Necesitas mas tiempo para llegar al lugar deseado y regresar.
  • No puedes ir muy de prisa ya que perderias tu objectivo principal: disfrutar el viaje en si, ademas de terminar con un ticket de trafico.
  • Tienes que ajustarte a las necesidades de los que viajen contigo si es que viajas en grupo o familia (no todos necesitan baño , comida y descanso a la misma ves, especialmente si hay diferencia de edad entre los pasajeros)
  • Necsitas contar con alguien mas que te ayude a conducer  (no puedes DORMIRTE)
  • Tienes que tener paciencia sobre todo con los pequeños.
  • Pagas gasolina.

Ahora … piensa… ¿Viajarias por carretera, es este el viaje que puedes pagar?

Cualquiera que sea tu opinion, lo importante es que no pares de planificar y sigue viajando!!!!

Crossing the border between Canada and USA

Crossing the border between Canada and USA

I enjoy all kinds of trips, ALL OF THEM, but one of my favorite ones are road trips.
Believe it or not, I’m afraid to fly; from the take off to the landing, flying and heights give me goosebumps. Although I really like to travel, I only enjoy it once I have landed and am safe. I love road trips, but I also know they are not for everybody.
Decide your self if road trips are for you or not.
 
Advantages of Road Trips:
  • Road trips are less expensive (you decide if want to eat at a nice restaurant or just fast food)
  • You manage your time however you like it
  • You will cover a lot of area while enjoying the views
  • It is adjustable to all ages (from kids to old people)
  • You can stop as many times as you want or not stop at all.
  • You’ll enjoy the freedom
  • Won’t pay for luggage
  • You’ll decide who will travel with you
 
Disadvantages:
  • You will need more time to make it to your destination
  • You can’t drive too fast; be careful with speeding tickets
  • You will need to adjust to the needs of the others traveling with you (bathroom, food, time to stretch)
  • Pay for gas
  • You need a second driver (You CAN’T Fall ASLEEP!!!)
  • Need to be patient with the little ones

Now…Think  Will you travel by road? How long can you handle a road trip? Is this a type of trip you can afford?

No matter what your answer is. Don’t stop planning and keep traveling!!!!

My City

My City

Miami/Part 1
When talking about Miami the first thing that comes to my mind is the clear waters of its beaches, the sun, the boats, and of course the variety of restaurants and food, the night life and my favorite: the cruises. Miami is a great travel destination, we receive visitors from all over the world, the warm beaches invite travelers and residents to the most spectacular hotels in South Beach, and /or to get on a three to seven day cruise from one of the largest ports in the world: the port of Miami, the capital of the cruises. I leave you guys with some views of my city. Enjoy!!!
Cuando hablo de Miami, lo primero que me viene a la mente son sus playas, el sol, los botes y por supuesto la variedad de restaurants y comidas, la vida nocturna y mi favorita: los cruceros.
Miami es un gran destino turistico , recibimos turistas del mundo entero, las calidas aguas de la playas invitan tanto a extranjeros como a residents a hospedarse en los grandes hotels de South Beach, y/o a tomar un crucero de tres a siete dias desde uno de los puertos mas grandes del mundo, el Puerto de Miami, considerado la capital de los cruceros del mundo. Aqui los dejo con algunas vistas de mi ciudad.
Disfrutenlas!!!
