Family Trip

Post by GCamer »

In the book Blue Water Walkabout: into Africa Tina and her family embarked on a wild family adventure into Africa.

What is you unforgettable trip with your family? What made it special? If you get a chance to travel together again or if you haven't travelled together and would get the chance to do so, where would you like to go and why?

Twenty years ago we travelled to Jeffrey's Bay for our only family trip/holiday. I remember it because we don't do family trips and I think it was the first time I experienced the sea. We also spent time at JBay's Sea World and there I came as close to dolphins, sea lions and penguins as I ever would.

My family too a trip to New York City when I was young. It was great. Saw the empire State building and watched a Broadway play.

My family and I don't usually go on trips together. We went to Cedar Point once and that was quite memorable.

When I was a child, one of my most memorable family trips was a snow trip. It did not snow where we currently lived, so we took a trip to enjoy building snow men, sledding, and just enjoying the snow.

Latest Review: "That Place of Knowledge" by Philip Alan Shalka

Post by Ljessup »

I went to Germany with my husband and son and that is a trip I will never forget. The food was amazing, the views were amazing, the people were amazing, and it was overall just an amazing experience. It was also my first time traveling out of the United States. We got to see a play in England as well on this trip and we saw the "Lion King." That was the highlight of the trip for my son and I. My husband is from Germany so he took us around all the wonderful places he used to frequent, and has also seen the play tons of times, but I can see why he had no problem watching it again. It was the best version of "Lion King" I have ever seen! I would love to go back and visit again!

Spent a week every summer at the beach with my family and a friend's family, all the way through college. One year the kids all got to stay in their own room--we thought we were kings.

My biggest family trip growing up was a 7 week trip from Pennsylvania to Alaska and back with my parents. We went in our truck with a camper on the back .so it was a 7 week camping trip. A beautiful way to see the country.

My family took a trip to Disneyland several years ago. It's the happiest place on earth, so of course I had a good time. I would definitely take the chance to go again.

When I was in my early teens, my parents, brother, and I took a trip out west, going to say many famous places and landmarks. We went to Mount Rushmore, the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone Park,
etc. What stands out most was those giant trees that are big enough for cars to drive through and seeing live elk and buffalo. It also stands out that I couldn't really enjoy the splendor of the GC because I'm afraid of heights and just couldn't bring myself to get anywhere near the edge.

I'd love nothing more to travel again, though not necessarily to the same places, now that I'm older and can more appreciate such things. Back then, my main concern was whether I looked cute in our pics.

My best family memories were of camping together. Each year we went to the same lake, but on some special years we went on trips further away -- to the Black Hills of South Dakota, Yellowstone, Mt. Rushmore, and another year on a long camping trip through B.C., Yukon Territory, and Alaska. It was amazing to see the natural wonders such as caves, mines, geysers, paint pots, Mountains, and wildlife, but even more special to spend relaxed time together as a family.

I've always wanted to go camping. It sounds like an amazing family trip.

I've never been camping, but have wanted to. Hopefully my husband and I will take our kids sometime so that we can all experience it.
