Ascension Day 2022

The Feast of the Ascension of Jesus Christ was not an excuse to just sit still and get rotten in the sofa just because it’s a holiday. It’s actually a perfect day to explore and spend time with family. Well, in my case I can’t sit still. It’s impossible when you have a little kid!…
