Hi, I'm Carol Chapman. I first traveled to Yucatan to find images of my Atlantis past life memories in Mayan ruins. I've continued to visit this wonderful land and it's amazing people because I love the place.

To Travel, To Move

To Travel, To Move:

We fly. We taxi. We bus. We drive. We bike. We hike. We sail. We kayak. We canoe. We cruise. We hitch. We off-road. We take a “tuk-tuk.” We journey. We move.

Motion separates us and draws us closer, simultaneously towards others and towards ourselves. Movement moves us from us and towards Us.

The best part is that they offer one-on-one sessions with native speakers of the language you are learning. And made practice exercises compatible with hand-held devices and iPads.

They closed the conversation gap.

Hello World!

It has been way too long since visiting Yucatan, so I will live via memories until returning (hopefully this fall).

Here goes to welcoming culture, color, vibrancy, heat, tradition, respect, and “feeling alive” back into my life…via the internet (who knew?).
