The rest of yesterday was equally low key- which was very welcome after the long travel day and late night. It was actually a beautiful day (I am not convinced the rest of the days will be, looking at the forecast, but I guess who knows.) The boys were basically in heaven, just loving “re-exploring”… Continue reading Relaxed day, nice weather and cultural differences!
So after our perfectly smooth flights yesterday, we landed ahead of schedule in Mexico City. All we needed to do was breeze through immigration (which always makes Ivan cringe a little, because he has to travel on his U.S. passport- meaning he has to line up in the “extranjeros” or “foreigners” line, with us, to… Continue reading A little rocky start, but improving 🙂
Sunday, March 20 On Sunday we finally had to say goodbye. I'm such a sap, so I had to fight back some tears while hugging my sis. Always stinks, because it's usually such a long time before I see her again. Basically, this was a transition day. Our only real plans involved doing some of… Continue reading Day 9: Goodbyes and train to Dublin
Thursday, March 17 Thursday was St. Patrick's Day! We didn't specifically plan our trip to be in Ireland over St. Patrick's Day, exactly, but it just happened to work out with the timing of the boys' spring break. It was just an added bonus. 🙂 I should say, though, that I think when people envision… Continue reading Day 6: St. Patrick’s Day in Ireland!

I've been waking up really early and unable to fall back to sleep- around 3 am on Sunday (1st day… Continue reading Adjusting to normal life
Ciao da Roma!! Clearly, I failed immensely at keeping up on daily blog posts during our trip. 🤪🤪 I promise I had the best of intentions… but unlike our big New England trip last summer, where we had relatively slow mornings each day (i.e. a blogging window), I just have not had big chunks of… Continue reading Well, I tried.
Tuesday, March 15 After a couple of pretty full days, and a weather forecast that looked iffy anyway, the plan for Tuesday was a pretty low key morning. My nieces had school, so they went off to that, but the rest of us slept in a bit. The boys got a kick out of riding… Continue reading Day 4- lazy morning, Museum of Country Life, pub
