Michael & Hagar's World Travelogue
by Michael & Hagar from California, USA
We met this couple on the first day of our trip (they were also in the first week) and climbed the Great Wall together. Their travel stories keep us rolling with laughter. Their journey was fun AND fruitful -- they produced a baby along the way. What a bonus!
