Our annual overseas trip this year was to Europe. We typically go to Asia Pacific, so I was excited to explore new countries. We started our trip in London, took the train to Paris, and ended up in Amsterdam.
Aside from being a beautiful and romantic city, I have several relatives on my maternal side that call Paris home. We took the twins to many sightseeing spots, but also just spent a lot of quality time with family.
Paris is a special place for me, and somewhere I’ve been three times. My first trip ever on a plane was to Paris when I was 13 years old. I still remember puking on the flight, and thinking I would never travel again after that! After the war in Southeast Asia, my family was split up among USA, France and Australia. I can’t imagine being separated from my siblings at such a young age, so it means a lot to me for my mom to spend time with her family and show off her grandkids.
We decided to take professional photos while we were in Paris to capture the essence of the city. If you’re ever in Paris, I highly recommended Olga with OK Photo Paris
