I am so overdue

(Griffin in front of the cathedral of Santiago de Compostella)

I promised to post while we were away, and yet I did not. I promised myself I would post as soon as I got home, and I did not. I guess I just don't know where to start. Our trip was amazing, mind blowing, rich, memorable, exhausting.

My son just pooped so now I must run and change his diaper. But I will say this first - traveling with and infant is exhausting, challenging, and sooooo worth it. You will make friends with strangers (sometimes out of absolute necessity). You force your child to be flexible, whether he wants to or not. You will force yourself to be flexible and focus on priorities. You will discover that sometimes, sitting in the park is as much of a cultural experience as any museum.

More later.
