Mommy Moments: Special Trips

As most of you may know, we love to go places. Our present location has made it all the more attractive to go on special trips or even go for a drive on a weekend. What makes every trip special is the fact that each place holds something special for us to discover. The quality time that we spend with the FAMILY is also something that I treasure in my heart.

My external drive is now filled with photos from our trips. I still haven't shared most of them yet but I am glad for this week's theme. I have an excuse to post them. Hehehe! Here are our most recent ones.

Riding the gondola in Venice, Italy. A first and a dream come true for me! It was one very hot summer day when we got into our gondola but the cool breeze and the relaxing cruise refreshed us.

Inside St. Peter's Basilica in Vatican City. Entering this holy place gave me goosebumps. Despite the stream of people coming in and out of the church, there is just a sacredness that shrouds this Holy Place.

A view of the Piazza di San Pietro in Vatican. We had to climb up to the Cupola just to have this photo taken. Does the view look familiar? Think Angels and Demons...

Our trip to Rome, Italy brought us to the famous Spanish Steps. It's at the end of a famous designer shopping street in Rome. It was packed with tourists from the world over.

At the Trevi Fountain in Rome. It was our first day and we went sightseeing. The fountain is just beautiful with its night lights!

Out to see the ruins! We didn't want to miss having our family photo taken at the famous Roman Colloseum.

Our adventure under the earth at the Salt Mines in Berchtesgaden, Bavaria. It was a very fun adventure trip as we journeyed back in time to find out why salt is considered White Gold. We had to wear these miner's overalls over our clothing because it is cold underground, at a constant temperature of 12°C.

Giggling like nervous. Hihihi! We were visiting Hitler's former teahouse, more popularly known as the Kehlsteinhouse or Eagle's Nest, that sits on top of a mountain in Berchtesgaden, Bavaria. We had to pass five tunnels and get on a golden elevator just to get there!

At the Kloster Einsiedeln in Switzerland where we heard mass at the Church of the Black Madonna.

If you notice from my photos, it's all about being with the FAMILY that makes a trip EXTRA SPECIAL!

How about you? What do you consider to be a special trip?
