My name is Ella and I am 7 1/2 years old. I love traveling!
I like traveling because I make new friends and I get to meet new people. And I like traveling because I get to see new things.
I love paintings on buildings. It’s fun to see things!
This is me in my gymnastics competition. It was in June in Mexico. I got first place!
l love this picture because he’s going, “Oooh! Too much pictures!” He’s funny!
I love looking at new carpets. These are carpets of sawdust and flowers in Guatemala. We were there in April for Semana Santa.
This is me on an island in Mexico. I had a lot of fun. I have been on 3 islands—one in Mexico and two in Belize.
When we went to this island they had crocodiles and a bunch of lizards.
They look funny. They were behind fences. Some were fat, some were not!
Whoa, I’m surprised! There’s a tarantula in the road! How could that happen? Tarantulas look a little different than spiders. They’re fuzzy and very very big. I wonder if they’re soft. I would not like to hold one.
There’s amazing views somewhere to see a volcano. And that was in Colima, Mexico.
This is me with my first camera. And who took the picture? Well, maybe I was holding it? I think I was!
Tuk tuks are small, and they have a funny name.
I have ridden in one. Here’s a picture of me riding in Guatemala.
Tuk tuk tuk tuk tuk tuk tuk tuk tuk!
I’m amazed that these girls can carry very heavy things! This is humongous! It even has a bunch of other heavy stuff on it, too! Wow!
This is a chapel lit up. It has a bunch of pretty stuff on it.
These are churros. They are very yummy. In Spain sometimes they dip them in chocolate. These churros are from Guatemala. They have sugar on them, but in Spain they only have sugar on the plate. Yum, yum!
What is that?! I think it is a crocodile! It looks cut up. I would never like to eat a crocodile. Not even a teeny bite!
These are some of my friends. Some travel, some don’t. But most of them do!
This is us smelling flowers in a huge market in Guatemala.
These are some of the Dennings.
This is a friend that is going, “oooooh!”
Suddenly some kids popped up to come sit in a picture with us. It was kind of embarrassing.
This is Kyah with some water packets to drink out of.
These are friends from Alaska. They are going to start traveling, too.
This is my friend, Nuria. She is very nice, too.
These are the Whiteheads. They’re fun to play with. They lived close to us once. They are traveling, too.
This is us on Easter with the Dennings and Kings in Guatemala.
Me and Kyah with the eggs. We also did a scavenger hunt with the eggs. Who wants to eat them?
These are some friends in Belize. We’re eating food, too.
I wish I could stay longer with my friend.
Well, that was fun to make a blog post! My first time doing it, too.
