Imagine that you are 9 years old, comfortably at home entertained somehow-perhaps playing with your Barbie dolls- and your mum asks you to go down to the shops and buy something for her to cook lunch. Such a big deal to leave the house, right? 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.
It is the beginning of August, and in Colombia this time -more than any other time- means flowers.
I never thought that having my own business was something I wanted to do, until as many of you know, I started to feel the need to reconnect with my South American roots after many years as an expat in Australia.
