We were incredibly lucky to be able to spend our holidays in Europe this year - my entire family (parents, sister, sister's best friend and the four of us) traveled to Paris and Barcelona. It was truly something we'll all remember for the rest of our lives. Here, a few highlights and things we learned...
The produce in Paris is to die for. Even in the winter. We stayed in an apartment on Rue du Louvre, and shopped for fruit and pastries every morning. I channeled my inner French chef and whipped up omelettes as well. I adore cooking, and cooking in Paris is just the best.
Photobombing is all the rage with pre-teen boys. Well, at least with my pre-teen boys.
Those Luxembourg chairs really are the comfiest.
Everyone looks classy on the Eiffel Tower. One other thing - I was unable to get a good photo, but the boys went ice skating on the first level of the Eiffel Tower on Christmas day. It was probably one of the most memorable moments of the trip.
Not everyone likes jamon serrano.
They were not this enthusiastic about any of the art museums that we went to, but to each their own...
A lot changes in eighteen years. Last time I was at La Sagrada Familia, it didn't have a roof!
And last time I was at Parc Guell, you didn't need a ticket or a reservation. Both are required now, so we had to peek in from the outside...
We had a wonderful time!
