About Us...
This is our travel blog... our electronic travel journal you could call it... documenting our journeys to new & different places. I called our blog, 'Tree Top Flyin'... a Jimmy Buffett reference that reminds me of traveling, & the adventures to be had with our newly acclaimed 'IFR' Pilot & his plane. We're a non-traditional family - living in non-traditional ways... and I love it that way. For the four of us life is quick & distinct... it's unique and adventuresome - but it's also very normal. We have angst, & we have laughter. We have pain and we have greatness. We're happy, and we're whole...this family, that is mine.

Feb 8 -? Playa Del Carmen, MX

Mi Familia!

Everyone who does the FaceBook scene probably knows where I am right now, and how it's going... but Mom, Pauline, & my family & friends who haven't jumped on the FB wagon:
I am in Playa Del Carmen, MX. Today is Day 5... but here are a few short clips of what I've been posting:

This is Day 1 ladies & gentleman... and I'll admit - a bit hard. I'm in an internet cafe, and bouncing between homesick-tears, & awe. First day of class starts tomorrow @ 8AM, and so far I've made one friend... Alejandro, the Security Guard. I'm excited for the 14 days ahead of me. LOVING My Man, The Monkeys, My Family, & My good, good Friends. Thanks for such an extra-ordinary B-Day all of you! SO many surprises!Oh - and I think I'll go with 'awe' vs. the 'homesick-tears'!
My School.

My dorm.

My closet... all settled in!
Day 2 (which was really Day 1 for school) was really pretty rough... but overall (and of course, in hindsight), a great day! Thankfully, I have a good, good man - who keeps me on course when I'm frustrated & want to come home! I have no pictures from today (school lasted forEVER) - but above is a picture (Mi Familia) of how I was introduced to my Mexican adventure... Surprise #1 was to walk into my house - full of my ENTIRE family. They were sporting sombreros & tape-on mustaches - and were totally rocking to the Mexicano music station! Check them out. Surprise #2 was a trip to Playa del Carmen, MX - enrolled in a language school (something I've really wanted). And, we'll have to cover Surprise #3 (a restaurant full of my bestest friends) when I get back!
