Our first destinations

English below

We kwamen aan in Mexico-stad, wat gelijk onze eerste bestemming was. De meerderheid van mijn Mexicaanse familie woont daar, door wie we ook hartelijk verwelkomt werden. Het is gek, want ik kan mijn familie door de lange afstand tussen ons niet vaak zien. Dit keer was het vier jaar geleden dat ik iedereen zag. Ondertussen was het kleine hondje van mijn oma overleden én had ik er een nichtje bij. Genoeg over mijn nostalgie, hihi.

Creating new habits

English below

Ken je die mensen die altijd zo lang mogelijk in bed blijven en dan net op tijd overal aankomen. Hoi, ja dat ben ik. Maar daar ben ik nu verandering in aan het brengen. Ik probeer geleidelijk een nieuwe ochtendroutine te krijgen en tot nu toe bevalt dat reuze goed. Zo goed zelfs dat ik het iedereen aanraad en ik er zelfs een blogpost aan toewijd.

Mexico

Mexico, oh what a wonderful time did you give me this summer. You always seem to know how to make me fall in love with a place over and over again.

Since my mom is Mexican, Mexico is more than a summer destination for me. Not only do I want to discover the secrets and diversity of Mexico itself, I also get a chance to see my family again. To see what they’ve been up to and to meet new additions to the family. The sweetest little girl who is already more than a year old made me smile the brightest. She is a very special kid, and seeing here for the first time was amazing. All the photos and videos I had seen of my niece weren’t able to transfer her happy energy that she gives of the second she talks to you. How her little hand fits into yours. When you lift her up and she giggles. Men, she is adorable.

some shots of weeks ago

I think I mentioned once or twice that I wanted to make a short piece of film. A short montage of moments. So after trying to work with movie maker and making my first youtube video ever, I decided to shoot some more. Movie maker however doesn’t like me. Or anybody in that case. Simply moving one file can give you errors everywhere and after a while I decided that it just wouldn’t work. So I needed a new program to edit. And then I still needed to understand it, because there are all these functions and buttons and nicely said I am not to good at understanding digital programs. But with the help of youtube tutorials (and lowering some of my standards) I was able to make my first ever short footage clip ‘thingy’. I have no clue how to call it.
