My Bilingual Son’s First Trip To Chile

Posted by: | 9 Comments

Every time I come to Chile I am reminded of how lucky and priveldged I am to be able to travel and actually have a relationship with my family, that culturally I am well connected and most importantly that I speak the language, without that, I would be lost. I know that many who have come to the US have not been able to visit their country and if they have, maybe it’s once every few years. Growing up, IRead More ...

Posted by: | 1 Comment

Wow! That’s really the first word that came out of my mouth when we stepped foot into Cars Land, the brand new experience at Disney California Adventure that opened yesterday. There is so much I want to tell you about this Cars Land, like how it’s been five years in the making and how perfectly Disney and Pixar managed to recreate Radiator Springs and make you feel like you really stepped into the movie. I’m actually writing this from the mediaRead More ...

How to Give Your Children an ‘Authentic’ Immersion Experience

Posted by: | 5 Comments

“I want my kids to be immersed in REAL Mexican culture”…and “San Miguel has just so many ex-pats”; “it’s not ‘authentic’ enough…”. I can’t tell you how many times I have heard comments like these. My children and I are currently on a six-month stay in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico and before it’s done, we will have been here an entire year. Needless to say, my response to these sorts of comments has definitely done a 180°. Admittedly, IRead More ...

My girl and I enjoyed our family visit to the Universal Orlando Resort so much last year, that we went back for more a few weeks ago during our trip to Florida. We´re so thankful we got to stay at the Hard Rock Hotel since Camila´s favorite water slide is there and it was a tough time getting her out of the pool! We were able to convince her by reminding her how much fun she had at Dr. Seuss´LandingRead More ...

Ever since I met my husband, when he was an exchange student from Mexico at my U.S. university, he has been bragging about an amazing summer camp he went to as a child in Mexico D.F.: “There were sports and games, we would swim and have gymnastics every day, they taught us about leadership and did team-building activities.” He always said that one day, he would send his kids there. Fast-forward 13 years, when we had three kids ages 5,Read More ...

The Walt Disney Family Museum: A Journey of Inspiration

Posted by: | 3 Comments

                          The word Disney would seem to have transcended the man who created what has now become  one of the most well-known, loved and recognized brands in the world. But one visit to The Walt Disney Family Museum in San Francisco, CA will make it very clear that this all started through the imagination, perseverance and good will of one man with a huge vision: Walt Disney.

My Mom Just Got Back from Peru with a Suitcase Full of ‘Encargos’

Posted by: | 20 Comments

“I’m never brining any of you any more encargos,” my mom complained as I help her lift the two huge suitcases you see in the picture above into my car’s trunk at Denver International Airport yesterday. She just got back from a six-week long trip to Peru and both my sister and I bombarded her with our lista de encargos even before she left. In fact, mine kept on growing while she was already there and I remembered I alsoRead More ...
