The Year : 2001
Met my soulmate, my life. Got married, got blessings & off we were on our honeymoon trip to Europe. Our carrier #KLM, a tribute or luck, since my hubby was a frequent flyer got upgraded to 2 lovely seats with all the comfort we could be looking for.
No cameras on mobile, no digital cameras, all we were equipped with was our Ricoh camera with film rolls, but that didn't deter us from making sure we captured each monument, each view in our lenses. With no selfie sticks like now, a request - a please would always be enough to get the two of us in the frame to create memories which would be cherished for a lifetime. "Say cheese" were the words we would hear most oftenly from strangers followed by "Click, click, click" and the shutters doing their job.
My first steps on international soil, Amsterdam. The land of canals, windmills, art & of course cheese, cheese & more cheese. The boat ride through the canals, visiting the Anne Frank House about whom I had read before was the perfect start. "Maduradam - Holland In A Nutshell" made sure I got the feel of entire Holland in a few hours.
