I am a novice traveller when it comes to holidaying abroad.
When I was 18 I went on my first package holiday with my friends (they totally organised it.) When I was 19 I went on a kibbutz…all sorted for me by the kibbutz agency. The same year I went to Minnesota to Camp Friendship with Camp America which again was totally booked and sorted I just had to show up. Camp America WAS my holiday for the next 5 summers. I wrote about my summer camp experiences before here on the blog, oh I loved them so much
Since we have had kids we haven’t been abroad.
We have been camping fairly locally which required a lot to f to-ing and fro-ing from the car but just a simple phone call to book. We had a brilliant book called Cool Camping to help us out and the camping and cravanning club gave us a a great list of camp sites and we just picked one.
I am a lot more daunted about going abroad without the safety of someone else organising it and without knowing I’m only an hour a way form home. But I do want my kids to travel and see the big wide world out there .
I love Italy for example, it is one of the most amazing places I have ever visited and I know my kids would eat if we went there! Look at this beautiful Accomodation in Val Gardena
Isn’t that inspiring!
I really think we need to bite the bullet and go for it with holidays abroad. So good for a child to see the cultural and environmental differences and to realise what a vast world we live in but how people share so much in common. Ooh and the sunshine I am longing for some sunshine (and good Pizza!)
