Summer Vacation with a Toddler – In High Definition ! (Part 1)

Looking for Trouble – Plan a Summer Vacation with a Toddler

Are you devoid of drama in your life? Are you looking for some colour, action and adrenaline to turbo charge your dull existence. Well, I have the perfect solution for you! GO ON A SUMMER VACATION WITH A TODDLER. Ha ha ha ha. Now, now don’t get me wrong. I am not being perverse. Just being honest or rather speaking from the heart. A summer vacation with a toddler is a 3D action thriller. It has its incredible twists and turns and is guaranteed to keep you on the edge. It’s the real deal and all in high-definition 🙂 And don’t we love HD !

Speaking of high-definition, I realized that I haven’t ever done a photo post on this blog. I guess now is the perfect time to share some of my favourite moments with Miraaya on our Summer Vacation to Portugal. We visited Lisbon and Algarve during this trip a couple of weeks ago and it feels like I went to the moon and back 🙂 Some accomplishment huh ! Well, when you have to deal with toddler mood swings, ears popping on an aircraft, irate outbursts and meltdowns then it does seem daunting. I can now write at length about the Ten Commandments of Vacation according to a Toddler. But lets leave that for another post.

For now, I would like you to enjoy these pictures of mother and daughter soaking in the sun and sights of Portugal. I suspect that some of you will find these adorable but don’t be fooled! Miraaya is a menace. She is NEVER upto any good. These pics only reveal half the truth. Our baby monster was in full form. She did it all from chasing down pigeons in Lisbon to eating sand in the beaches of Carvoeiro to chomping on my hair in the streets of Alfama. Yeah she had a blast. That is what made it worth it ! So here is the first of a three-part series of photo posts of our vacation pics with Miraaya.
