Curious Tuesday 012

What were your family vacations like?

Where did you go? What did you do? What always happened? What was the best holiday you took together? What was the worst?


My sister on the left, me on the right, Mickey in the middle.

We did a lot of vacations when I was a kid – my parents always took us somewhere. The photo here is from a trip I have a bit of memory of – although we didn’t do the Disney thing too much, especially once we moved to Florida.  We went on a lot of cruises, but that was more in my tween/teenage years.  The cruises were fun even though all 4 of us in the one room was a bit tricky.

I think my favorite of our trips was a cruise to Bermuda when I was around 13 – I got to ride on the back of the moped with my Dad.  My poor brother rode with my mom and they crashed a little bit.  Anyway, that trip was great, it was really beautiful there.  We always had fun though, and did a lot of snorkeling and torturing my mom.

I can’t think of anything as being the worst. Maybe the cruise where we went to St Maarten (amongst other islands). My brother and I stayed in the sun WAY too long and ended up getting hideous sunburns. My chest had actual blisters, which matched well (sarcasm) with the lace dress I had to wear for “cruise formal night.”  Ahh, memories.

I’ll always be grateful for the trips we took with our parents when growing up – we always had a good time.
