Picture this – You return from your latest vacation with the family and the first thing you want to do is tell everyone all about your adventures, and of course there are many waiting anxiously to hear. 

We all have stories of our trips, some more colorful than others.  The funny thing is that the bumps in the road seem to become the moments that made your trip memorable.  I asked my 3 younger kids to tell me which trips were their favorites, and I was pleasantly surprised by their answers.  Here are a few of them:

From my 22 year old daughter: 
  • Remember that time the fire alarm went off in the hotel and we had to go outside and watch   the firemen in their gear
  • Snorkeling with the turtles in St. Thomas
  • Cruising through the Panama Canal – I got to spend so much time with you (Mom)

From my 15 year old son:
  •  Snorkeling with the turtles in St. Thomas
  • Seeing the Buffalo Crossing at Yellowstone
  • The cool heated toilets in Japan – they even talked to us.

From my 13 year old daughter:
  •  Making new friends in the Kids Club on my first cruise
  • Snorkeling with the turtles in St. Thomas4Fishing in Ft. Lauderdale

As you can see, I think a trip back to St. Thomas should be planned soon.  So, what are some of my most memorable trips?

  • Getting lost in the maze of alleys in Venice, Italy – and the gelato!
  • Walking on a Glacier in Alaska
  • That trip when I totally forgot to pack underwear
  • And of course, snorkeling with the turtles in St. Thomas with my kids

Just as your past vacations have amazing memories, your future trips will also have memorable moments.  Those will become the things you and your children, friends, family will talk about, laugh at, and maybe even cry over for years to come.   

What do you want your next vacation to look like?  Wouldn’t it be great the next time someone asks you about your trip to say, “I will never forget the time…”  Plan your next vacation keeping in mind what types of memories you can create for yourself, your family, your friends, etc. 

You’ll have an amazing vacation and…

You’ll have the stories to prove it!

I’d love to help you plan your next amazing adventure!
