Feliz Navidad

Does it seem to you that time is going faster and faster, yet every year we can’t wait for this beautiful season to come? I am definitely a sucker for Christmas, and whether I celebrate it in Colombia or Australia I try to keep the traditions of both countries as much as I can.

But if you knew that on the way there you could stop at the park, spend time on the slides and the swings, meet the new kids that moved into the house around the corner and have an ice cream, then it is not such a big deal and you would gladly do it. Well, that is how I have learned over the years to see my trips from Australia, to avoid being overwhelmed and keep my eye on the ball all year-round before I can travel.
