Reading on Vacation



Earlier this week, I wrote about our stay in Akumal, Mexico in 2006. This photo was taken one evening on that trip while I was reading aloud to BigB – I think we were reading from a chapter book from the Secrets of Droon series. I love how the colorful tile in our apartment stands out against the white walls and tiles.

You can tell that we’re enjoying the moment and that our oh-so-white Irish/Seattle skin has been enjoying the warmth of the Mexican sun – just count those freckles :)

About wandermom

". . .life is short and the world is wide" - Simon Raven I'm not sure I've ever consciously planned a trip based on this sentiment, but it definitely influences my subconscious! I've been traveling as frequently and widely as possible since I finished school. And I love it. I love the research, the planning, the fervent packing and the curiosity of exploring somewhere I've never been before. My husband & I are both Irish - as in born-in-Ireland. But we live in Seattle. We have two boys: wild, boisterous, regular boys. So, since becoming a Mom, I've been a WanderMom. Given our slightly-unusual family situation, routine "visits-to-Grandma" are international trips requiring passports, 10hr-flights and (oh joy!) airport transfers. I have rants, raves and opinions about how, where & why to travel with kids (start them as young as you can, I say!). I hope to learn even more by researching topics which other wandermoms may be interested in reading about on this blog. Passports, pacifiers, diapers and gameboys at the ready - off we go!

    The colorful tiles are also one of my favorite parts about Mexico. Being able to share an enjoyable read, amidst that setting, sounds terrific!

    One of the things I always love about vacation is the fact that I usually get a little more uninterrupted reading time…my favorite way to chill in the late afternoon or after a busy day.
    Great that you guys had time to enjoy the same thing during your Mexican trip
