Mission of Love: Puerto Rico Hurricane Relief Effort Trip

4 Comments

On September 20th Puerto Rico was devastated by Hurricane Maria.  On October 27th, exactly one month and a week later I traveled to Puerto Rico to bring provisions to family and friends on a Mission of Love: Puerto Rico Hurricane Relief Effort Trip. 

Puerto Ricans in the diaspora with a mission of love.

At the airport, I realized I wasn’t the only one lugging boxes and suitcases of provisions.  I spoke to a few people who were on the same mission that I was on!  To bring to their loved ones some relief.  We joked about how heavy our bags were, and how batteries are a hot commodity in Puerto Rico.  We weren’t strangers talking.  We were Puerto Ricans in the diaspora sharing one thing in common: to help our families.

Puerto Rico Art Murals

2 Comments
One of the highlights of our past trip to Puerto Rico was actually taking the time to enjoy our surroundings. Normally, when we are on vacation we’re on such a time constraint, and rushing through everything.
In one of our outings, and while looking for a playground for little one in Barceloneta, Puerto Rico we came across these beautiful murals.
Barceloneta is located in the north region, bordering the Atlantic Ocean, north of Florida, east of Arecibo, and west of Manatí.
The murals are located on Carretera 681 in Barceloneta, right across the Teatro Ernesto Ramos Antonini.

Libros Libres (Free Books) Puerto Rico

1 Comment
I first heard of Libros Libres (Free Books) in Puerto Rico via a friend’s Facebook feed.  The concept is similar to Little Free Library but it wasn’t just a small looking type mail box. It was a wall with milk crates fixated onto them full of books, tons of them!
Libros Libres  started in June of 2015.  Their main goal was to revive communities that were abandoned, so  neighbors can walk freely, trusting the streets that were once abandoned to be able to exchange conversations, and share one thing in common a love for literacy and books.

Kid-Friendly Vacation in Puerto Rico

1 Comment

Puerto Rico is a small island in the Caribbean rich with history, culture, and tropical weather all-year long.  While vacationing in Puerto Rico there was so much to do, and very little time. So we squeezed as much as we could in a two weeks time frame.

From enjoying the beautiful beach of Flamenco, and learning about the history, and culture of Culebra, to checking out my Mom’s hometown in Florida, and  taking a look at the schools in Puerto Rico.  I was also on a quest to learn more about our Taíno ancestry and we visited the famous Cara del Indio.

Now, please sit back, and enjoy this two  part series of our kid-friendly vacation in Puerto Rico.  With a 5 yr. old in tow, and with a strict budget we focused on kid-friendly, and frugal outings to do with our child.
