The Places We Go

“Like all great travelers, I have seen more than I remember, and remember more than I have seen.” 

– Benjamin Disraeli, former British Prime Minister and author.

Travelling exposes our senses to a myriad of experiences, each of these unique and irreplicable in and of its own accord. This is a record of the Lim Family's travelling adventures both in distant lands as well as places not too far from our backyard. We hope that in sharing our experiences with you, that you too will be inspired to embark on your own adventures!
