Some of my favorite souvenirs are not bought. I love to take a piece with me..literly! That’s a hotel shampoo bottle filled with rocks from the path to the Eiffel Tower, a rock from Pere Lechaise & some left over euros that hopefully we'll be able to spend later.
I remember waking up one Sunday morning & saying “ I really want to go to Paris. Why not London too?!”. He just looked at me and said, “Sure.” Although I don’t know if he really knew how serious I was. Later that week I went to several travel agents, found a price & a created a travel schedule that sounded good. On Friday I showed him the plan & the price. Saturday we went down to the travel office and paid. Ohhh…. the easy of planning things before kids!
1 month later we were off on our first European trip. I failed to mention how I have a huge fear of flying. But it was worth it to actually go to these places instead of just wishing I could.
A few years later, after my first daughter was born, I mentioned how I would love to see Paris again My Husband suggested I plan a trip with my sister. Make it a girls week of fun. I was very excited, but it was very very hard to leave my then 2 year old & husband behind. There were a few times I almost changed my mind, but I’m so happy we went.
We had a completely different trip then my husband & I. And what better way have some sister bonding time then sightseeing in Paris?! I really feel very lucky to have been able to go on those trips. So for something fun I thought I’d share photos of those trips on what I’ll call travel Tuesdays.
Today I sat down & scanned all my favorites. They’re ready to share each Tuesday. Forgive the photo quality. Our first trip I didn’t even have a digital camera yet. But I do have a digital photos from the second. I’m turning this house upside down for the disc, but for now this will have to do :)
