Given that I’m flying away at the end of the week, it’s hard not to spend a little bit of time looking to the future. And as that future is very much going to a holiday I’ve been looking forward to a lot, it makes me wonder about what wonderful holidays you’ve all had.
For some reason, one of the strongest family holidays that sticks out in my mind is one of the first. It was a road trip south, of sorts, to the NSW/Victorian border. I remember we stopped for a motel one night in Peak Hill, where Mum and I shared some Vegemite toast. There was nothing special about the motel, the toast, and certainly not Peak Hill: it was a mining town just over 400km south of Sydney, certainly not a tourist spot by any stretch of the imagination, and Vegemite is Vegemite. It never changes.
But sometimes small moments with family can be special like that.
Other holidays that I remember: my first solo holiday in Japan a couple of years ago, predominately because I kept things as super chill as humanly possible. A family trip to Queensland was also tops because, as a kid, theme parks are great (except Sea World, which I never, and still don’t, take to).
What’s the best holiday you’ve ever been on, or the one you remember the most?
