We’re Back, at least for a bit…

I am sorry I’ve been MIA. We just got back from our vacation on Sunday and it truly was a time to rest and recreate. I barely touched my computer and instead enjoyed every minute of our trip.

We saw our good friends, spent precious time with our families and were very blessed to have an extremely fun time. God is just so generous and we are very grateful for the opportunity to spend some quality time as a family.

Coming back to reality has been challenging to say the least.  Remember that time I decided to start working, well this is the first time I have to deal with jetlag, jetlagged kiddos and a very heavy work schedule that will keep me on my toes until at least early October. I can’t complain, it was all worth it.

I will try to keep you updated and hopefully write about our adventures thru Mexico very soon. For now I will just leave you with a few still images of our very dynamic vacation which started in the north of Mexico and took us all the way to the southern Yucatan peninsula.

    • Dear Karan, thank you so much for your kind words! And sorry it took me so long to reply. I was out of town for a business trip. I wish you a wonderful year full of expectations and preparations before your move to Jakarta. I know you will do great. God bless! Warm regards!

  2. Hi Ana,

    I was recently advised to write to some foreign service bloggers to share information about our programs for families living abroad.

    I work with a company called IDS. We have developed means to reach diverse group of families working and living abroad who have children with special needs. We have a range of specialists available to consult onsite and now remotely, through Insight from Offsite. Our service offerings have recently been supported by the Office of Overseas Schools and the Office Medical Services Child and Family Program.

    If you would like to learn more about our programs, please visit http://www.idsalliance.com/for-families/insight-offsite/

    We would love your feedback as well as an opportunity to answer any questions you may have. I’d be happy to arrange a Skype meeting with you at your convenience if you were interested. 

    Thank you for your time and keep up the great work!

    Sincerely,

    Richard Fleitas

  3. Anna, wow Mexico through your eyes is absolutely stunning. I hope to visit one day! I am totally loving Berlin, and I miss meeting up with you and Kaho! You are a champ for getting back on the work-wagon right after vacation. Vacations, while lovely can also tire you out haha!

    • Hi! Thanks for dropping by!!! I miss hanging out with you, too. Mexico was so much fun! You should make it a point to visit. I think you would love it! I’m glad you are enjoying Berlin! I loved living in Germany. Take care!

  4. I always enjoy every image you put on your blog. It’s either you are a talented photographer or it’s a sophisticated camera you have there :p
