it’s has been a long time since my last post. Today, i wanted to share my trip to Holland with my family.
Travelling with kids under 5 can be a little tricky. We used Emirates not just because the have the inflight entertainment for kids, but also the flight attendant are very helpful with kids. Aaron & Anezka got a lot of goodie bags and gifts to keem them busy in the plane.
Oh and the best thing about Emirates is that once we get off the plane, they lend us a stroller for our kids. Yeay! No more backpain for me.
The plane was about to taxi in Dubai, when the sandstorm hits. So we were stuck for about 1 hour on the runway. It was quite scary. Fortunately, there are no machine failures or anything (me and my paranoid thoughts about airplanes)
Luckily, we stayed at my cousin’s house, where there are children’s playground in every block. And it’s free. Back in my country, we have to pay a lot of money to play in playground like this.
And if the kids get tired of playing in the playground, they can spend hours just looking at ducks and birds by the river/lake.
In Holland, you really should rent a bike. It’s much more fun riding a bike in spring time. You can stop at any beautiful spot that you like and take pictures. (Yess i’m asian, and i loooove my camera 😅)
While in Holland, we decide to go to Paris just to see how it is in spring time. Luckily, we found Private Tour Europe to take us around. You can contact them through their instagram
They’re kind enough to stop by at Belgium on our way to Paris.
We also stop by at De Grote Markt, it is an iconic square in the Belgian capital of Brussels. La Grand Place attracts tens of thousands of tourists each year, making it one of the most important landmarks in Belgium. It was selected as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Grand Place is an outstanding blend of architectural and artistic styles that characterizes the diverse culture and society of the Belgian Brussels-region.
This is our room.
And this is the view from our balcony
And i can’t be more french than wearing stripes and eating creme brûlée in Paris.
So, heading home and trying to claim the tax refund, as a struggle and a patience test. It took us 1,5 hour standing in the tax refund line. Not to mention that we have to run to the other level of the airport to get the cash. So it was a good idea toarrive 4 hours early before the boarding time.
