This is the most difficult and bittersweet trip I have ever made in my whole life. A trip without DH and Isabelle for a total of 14 days!!
The first 2 days was a struggle, missing both DH and Isabelle terribly. Every sight of a daddy and a little girl reminds me of them and brings tears to my eyes. And almost every moment, I regretted my decision to take up this trip and I was drowned in the sea of guilt and lousy homesickness. Long trip it is, but I made it through.
Here are some photos to share:
