Back!!


Mornings in Paris.

Twelve days and two airport dramas later, we finally got home.

It has been an incredible trip and it does get more special as the years go by because it's precious time away with my favorite person in the world.

They say parenting is an all consuming job and it really is. So time away from the kiddos is something I treasure with the hubs. We love traveling. Perhaps with all the level of commitment of raising newborns and toddlers has significantly lessened, we have a bit of time on our hands to explore new places and have a good time just being us.

We spent a good week in Italy and some days in Paris. And can I say that I don't know how am I going to another italian restaurant in Singapore again after all the delicious pasta and tiramisu in Florence as well as Tuscany.

Our days in Europe were spent indulging in the food culture of both countries, wandering through the narrow alleyways of Venezia, visiting the original "Lido" theatre, sipping lots of vino and coffee,  shopping up a storm in Paris, soaking in all the sights and driving through the hills of Tuscany. It was magic!

Europe is still so beautiful. Although they can do a lot better with their transportation network and room rates. =) But I guess we can't ask for everything to be perfect.

Anyway, I'm done rambling. More posts coming up on different parts of the trip. But for now, I'm gonna hit the sack and adjust back to local time. Ciao!
