travel memories on our tree

Posted on Updated on

We LOVE this time of year because we LOVE Christmas! It’s 2 weeks from Christmas and our tree is now up – yes it is an artificial one ๐Ÿ˜‰

Our humble Christmas tree that may need to be upgraded if we get more ornaments

As we added the different ornaments, we began reminiscing about our travels because some of our decoration are our “souvenirs” from our travels. It was only back in 2009, while we are at the Empire State Building did we think it would be a good tradition to start.

And since then, we have added several more to our tree. It’s not always easy to find Christmas ornaments, as it can depend not only the time of year but also the place you visit. But these are not the only things we pick up as our souvenirs ๐Ÿ™‚

Our families are in Sydney so Christmas is great because we get to spend time with both sides – minor downside is that its always hot! Maybe one day, we get to experience a true white Christmas somewhere…

MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

HOPE next yearย brings you all lots of joy and travels ๐Ÿ™‚
