And I’ll soon be fulfilling the so-called “requirements” for this Beautiful Blogger Award. For now, just needed to show my appreciation to the very positive feedback this blog constantly receives. I’m thrilled and honored. Never thought it’d reach such a wide audience… Thank you! Thirteen months of blogging… WOW – an incredible experience. I initially began this blog to share my impressions, observations and along-the-road experiences with our families and friends, and later, with other expats experiencing similar challenges/adventures…
…so, the blog morphed into more than just a quasi-travel and photo journal. The name for the blog came from the term itself: “3rd Culture Children” (TCKs, more information here) are children whose parents come from distinct cultures, and grow up under a hybrid environment, experiencing diverse cultural growth. As I’d said before, sharing our life experiences, travels and lessons learned through this blog, has been a great experience! I’m passionate about sharing our travel pictures, telling stories, discussing our challenges and the discoveries we’re making along the way – people and places.
Travels in Brazil, posts related to outdoors activities, cultural events, such as attending the world’s largest open air theater for the Re-enacting of the Passion of Christ, as well as the ones showing scientific investigations and natural discoveries, seem to be quite popular!

And finally, a quite popular recent post: Impressions from the Cirque du Solei in Brazil! Definitely worth experiencing… we recommend!
For a working mom, juggling with the work-life balance, in charge of anything from grocery shopping to planning trips, I’m honored. I’m so pleased to share with other expatriates, parents, and traveling families, the beauty and excitement of traveling, attending artistic expressions of culture, exploring nature (I’m a biologist!), languages (we’ve got Spanish, Portuguese and English in our household!), social/cultural adjustments, and our not-so-professional advice as “parents-on-the-go“ - imagine hauling this family of 5 around, raising multi-language TCKs, and keeping the passion for photography and story-telling?!
