Travelling overseas with young ones in tow is never easy. But local TV host
Diana Ser braced herself and did it anyway.

the family of five escaped for a quick weekend getaway to Bintan Island Club
Med Resort in Indonesia last November.
It was especially memorable because it was the first trip for their youngest
daughter Jaymee, who was less than a year old at the time. Their eldest, Jake,

resort's lawns. A brass band entertained the guests while children were kept
occupied playing football and making tie-dye T-shirts and kites.
Junita Simon in Barcelona, Spain
Her maiden trip to Barcelona was just three days long. So model-host Junita
Simon, 35, wanted to make the most of her time there.
Back in April 2009, Simon visited her husband, aesthetics doctor Amal Dass,
who was then living in Britain. He surprised her with a quick trip to Barcelona
and the couple flew to the Spanish city for three days.
Most of their time was spent visiting the city's architectural wonders.
Sagrada Familia, a Roman Catholic church
"One of my favourite places was Sagrada Familia, a Roman Catholic church,"
said Simon. The church, Antoni Gaudi's unfinished masterpiece, is a United
