When I was 13, my mom took my older brother and me on a Bar Mitzvah trip to Paris and London.

I had a little diary back then where I would document every day and use tape to stick cards we received from places we visited on the diary pages.




In this publication I answer the 365 prompts from the annual writing challenge.
