HSV primeros dias

Como Ana dijo una vez:

“A este lugar le falta un poquito de CAOS.”

Sip, este es Hamburg, un lugar hiper tranquilo en el que no pasa nada. Llegamos hace 2 semanas y ademas de enfrentar burocracia (si hay mucha), salimos a conocer algunos lugares.

No pudimos salir mucho porque con el constante cambio de clima, Ana se puso un poco enferma.

Llegamos un Martes ya por la noche, entonces ese día ya no hicimos mucho,  solo nos instalamos, llegar en casa, cenar y a descansar, también tomamos un poquito de vino que mi tía/prima Ramona tenia para nosotros.

El otro dia ya salimos y fuimos a visitar mi tio avo Caia, el papa de Ramona- por eso mi prima/tia, que es en realidad mi tia, pero como tienen la misma edad do que yo, se quedo prima 😉 – que ha vivido en Hamburgo desde los años 70. En los seguintes dias salimos a tratar de los papeles, pero el clima por aqui es un poco loco. Nos dijeron que en el mismo dia tienes que salir con ropa de calor, frio, lluva y viento.

Luego les cuento un poco mas de esta nueva aventura.

Les Dejo algunas fotos de nuestros primeros dias.

Farewell home sweet home.

“I’ve learned that fear limits you and your vision. It serves as blinders to what may be just a few steps down the road for you. The journey is valuable, but believing in your talents, your abilities, and your self-worth can empower you to walk down an even brighter path. Transforming fear into freedom – how great is that?”. Soledad O’Brien

It has been more than one month since my last post. Yes, it is me, Ana. Last June I kind of lost my writing inspiration, it did not feel good, so I stoped it, why?, I was sad, June and July were the last months with my beloved ones before our journey to Hamburg.

I searched a lot about it, the guilt, the doubt, the fear, the loneliness, the process to say farewell… did it work?… kind of, but if I should share an advice is that you must deal with it with the “tools” you have and talk to your loved ones.

It was hard, since June I had the opportunity to have a mini reunion with my former co workers and friends, I got awsome vibes for the upcoming adventure, and just there I realised that it was going to be really difficult for me, and on that weekend I lost my inspiration to write here… I got reserved and all I decided to do was to spend the time with my family and friends.

My family wished us the best and confirmed their support no matter what and reminded us that right there we have our home. I can’t express my gratitude to the love, the good wishes and the concern, all I can do is to do my best in this German land.

Queretaro, one last time this year

Our last weekend in Queretaro this year.

On Thursday, we traveled to Queretaro, a city in the State of … Queretaro, yes, it’s something Mexico has, lots of cities with the names of the state. We went to see Ana’s family, by her dad’s side. We got there right before lunch, which was perfect timing if you ask me, and avoided lots of traffic since a little bit latter it would have been rush our and we are not vey fond of rush hours in big cities.

Work. Travel. Save. Repeat.

“One’s destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things.” – Henry Miller

It’s one thing to prepare to travel on vacation and it’s another totally different to prepare to travel and live abroad.

For traveling on vacations, most of the times you only need some clothes, passport, money but if you have enough courage not even that since you can go on a hitchhiking adventure. Sometimes you can even get your ticket a few days before leaving, even if you don’t have a place to stay, believe me been there done that. Most of the times you just have to worry about a place to crash at night and if you have a couch it’s good enough. Continue reading “Work. Travel. Save. Repeat.”

Ladies and gentlemen the winner is….

“Courage is found in unlikely places.” – J. R. R. Tolkien

When Edy came to Mexico, I knew that eventually the idea to move out from Mexico would come to hunt us, jajaja, yes like Michael Myers, and since he was studying Photography the idea was there waiting until he conquered that dream. So, he did, and last year we decided that in 2017 we would leave, we would move out of the country. It was hard for me to express that plan to my parents, but they both were supportive and encouraging, they advised us to plan it well, to prepare for it, and we did.

A new beginning

“Endings are not always a bad thing, it just means that something new can begin.”

3 years ago, when I decided to leave Cabo Verde, I wasn’t sure, how long my adventure in Mexico would be, I mean, I came prepared for whatever, be here for a few weeks, months, or even for years. It was a new beginning for me and for Ana. We had been trough some really ruff times and it was going to be the last test. 3 years later, we are here, happily married, had some ups and downs like every normal couple, we talk a lot, way more than we did it in the beginning, and that is the key.
