Haha, nice topic... I bet we all knew I'm gonna post here xD
I'll start with my childhood family holidays. The very first holiday I remember is when I was five, my mam & dad took me to France, where we stayed in a static caravan somewhere near a beach.I don't remember a great deal, but from the photos I believed it was a great holiday, we did loads of things, even heading to Spain and Monte Carlo. This was my only abroad experience until I was 18 xD
From the back of my memory I remember one or two holidays with my close family on my mothers side. I remember a static caravan holiday with my Aunty & cousin and my grandma, grandpa and my other uncles. I remember as a child I always wanted us all to go away together all the time (We're a close family) but it never happened again after I was around 7 T.T
My mother & stepfather always loved going away in the caravan, so every summer holiday (and maybe even Easter/Oct) we'd pack up the van and head off somewhere. We went to numerous places, from Brecon, St. Clares & Tenby in Wales to Somerset and the Lake District in England and anywhere in between. My parents were also a fan of going to the same place, so many times we'd re-visit a camp-site we had previously.
My dad and stepmam took me away every now and then, not every year, but there were a few summer holiday trips to Scotland (My dad is Scottish and has family there) and one or two in Wales. These holidays were more Butlins/Pontins where we stayed in chalets or apartment like rooms, and when we were in Scotland we'd stay at a family member's home (trust me, there's plenty of family, 10 Aunts/uncles & over 50 cousins)
So that was pretty much all my holidays as a child/teenager. My mam still goes away in the caravan, but I don't join them, mainly due to work and other plans. I still love caravanning, but as an adult now I find I'd rather caravanning wit friends than family (Sleeping & living in the same room as your parents & Brothers gets old fast xD)
As a young adult, I went away with some friends to an Adult's Butlins weekend (Brit's will know what I mean) which was brilliant fun, and I'd love to do it again in the future. Me and my friend also went to Scotland (first time flying), and then to Prauge when I was 18.
In 2009 I decided I wanted to go to America, and since my friends weren't fussed on joining me, I decided to go alone and join two 'Trek America' Tours. So off I went in 2010 starting in Los Angeles and meeting tour group number 1, and visited a few cities on America's west coast. I then went to Washington DC before meeting Tour group 2 in New York where we toured around North East America and Canada. This was a great experience, and I find doing it alone allowed me to make more friends :) I met some amazing people there, some I'm still friends with now =)
And that brings me to where I am now. I'm currently 6 weeks into my 10 week trip to Australia & New Zealand. I started my trip in Sydney with two friends I met in America (and met up with another) and then stayed with family in Adelaide and Canberra. I'm currently in Melbourne, being shown around by the only and only Bey xD On Wed I head back to Sydney for a week, before heading over to New Zealand, meeting one of my best friends and totally geeking out on Lord of the Rings locations xD
In the future I'd like to re-visit America and see Vancouver, and like Clo take a holiday to Japan. I actually plan on taking my mother to New York either this year or next, as it's always been her dream to go Christmas time, and her partner won't go to America xD Something else I'm definitely doing is returning to Australia on a Working Holiday Visa to see more of this amazing place ^,^
My dream holiday. Well, if money was no object, I would pull my friends away for a few weeks (months maybe?) and go to New York, Las Vegas and a few kick-ass conventions (i.e Minecon, Comic Con, E3) staying in a really swanky apartment thingy and having a blast of a time ^,^
