Travel Memories #37 – Portugal, 2013

Welcome to Travel Memories Week 37! We hope to post every week a photo from our past travels (before children included) that makes us smile and remember the moment. We love taking photos of our travels (especially me – Sam) so we thought we would start this little series and see where it takes us. Memories are so special and when we forget we can look back at all our photo albums and know that there were happy moments which we can cherish.

Our Travel Memories

This picture was taken back in 2013. We were in Portugal on a family holiday with my parents, my husbands parents and my younger brother. Now the picture above may not be special to anyone, however to me its a great. Big K has always hated water…he still does to this day. While in Portugal he was in and out of the pool, splashing about, jumping in and just having fun.

Even just seeing this picture brings a smile to my face as it is the only time I have seen him having fun in the water. To this day he still won’t put his face in the water or jump in a pool. We are hoping one day soon it will just click and he will start swimming and enjoying the water.

Until then I can just look back at these pictures and videos of this holiday and know that he did enjoy himself…even if it was just for a week!

Do you have a favourite travel memory? Feel free to share, we would love to hear from you.
