Our time in Mexico has come to an end. At least for this period of our lives. Even though we were only there for two years, it was sad to say goodbye. There are many things I will miss, including friends, food, travel, the Spanish language and the cheaper standard of living. Brian and I […]

Trip to Michoacan--TORNADO!

This current weekend is a puente so Oriana and I decided to take advantage and rent a car to travel to the state of Michoacan in order to visit the cities of Morelia and Patzcuaro.  It’s a weird feeling knowing that we will only be in Mexico for a few more months, and we are […]

Time Flies

Brian and I have been so busy lately that we haven’t had the time to post on our last trip. The first weekend of February was a puente for us (3-day weekend) so we left town. We went to 2 cities about 3-4 hours away with friends of ours. We first went to San Miguel […]


There is a whole photo album that goes along with this trip, so be sure to check it out on the Fotos page! Last Saturday Brian and I set out with our friend Grant to conquer one of the prominent volcanoes southeast of Mexico City. There are two volcanoes we can see from Santa Fe […]

Wow, it has been a long time since we last posted. There has not been a lot of excitement here in the DF over the last month. We are already in our 4th week of school and it seems like summer was so long ago. But here we are, back to the grind. Our fight […]

Photos from the last 3 days of our vacation are posted in the Fotos page. Check it out! Well… I guess it’s been a while since an update here on our blog. A lot has happened since the last post. More doctor visits, a trip to the States, Kyle’s wedding, more traveling, and relaxing back […]

Whirlwind in Playa del Carmen

I thought I would update you all about our time here in Playa del Carmen. If you haven’t seen on Facebook or heard from family members, we’ve had a bit of a struggle while being here. The last week has been spent figuring out what is going on with the pain on Brian’s face. We […]
