In the classic movie "Casablanca," Humphrey Bogart told Ingrid Bergman, "we'll always have Paris." He meant that nothing could take away those memories. In that same spirit, San Diego author Jennifer Coburn felt she needed to create lasting memories for her daughter. So she dropped everything and began a series of travel adventures with her 8-year old Katie. The experiences went on for years and Coburn has captured them in a new memoir titled "We'll Always Have Paris." The memoir is dedicated to her daughter Katie.
Their adventure started with a trip to Paris in 2005. The following years, the pair took on a city at a time, from Paris to Italy and Spain to Amsterdam.
This year, the family's adventure involves sending Katie off to college. Coburn and her husband will then head off for their own trip to Paris.
Coburn is a USA Today best-selling author of six novels and contributor to four literary anthologies.
