DavidB6937 Posted September 22, 2021 Share Posted September 22, 2021 Do you have fond memories of any particular childhood holidays? Were you always abroad or more local? Did you even get to go away? I never got to go 'abroad' until I was 18 when I went to America by myself because my mum wouldn't fly and my dad hated boats so we were pretty limited. My childhood holidays consisted of going to Broadstairs every year for a while, then Blackpool for about a decade to meet up with Scottish friends, and then for the final few years before my dad passed we just took a week or so and did day trips all over the place. Now I've got kids myself (6 and 3 and another one due this week) it's crazy how they've already been to Disney World twice, Greece and Spain but the great thing is they still love go to places like Haven and Butlins. I know that won't last but I am grateful that they're not holiday snobs quite yet. I was always happy going to Blackpool. I thought it was bloody brilliant as a kid. The piers, Pleasure Beach and all that. I've not been back since my dad died because I just think I'd have a mental breakdown but I do have incredibly fond memories that I hang on to. I would really love to take my kids one day just for the emotional connection even if it is mostly a shithole. Curious to hear others experiences and if they've changed as you've grown and had your own families. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
