History Through Travel Is Connecting Us As A Family

I have been thinking about our holidays as a family and I defiantly notice a pattern which has defiantly I think has had an impact on the choice of degree that my son has chosen up at  York University. He is studying Archaeology with Bachelor of Science and I joke to him that he is not as qualified as me yet even though he says he is ( he isn't ). Travel plays a big part in our family life and we have had many a exotic holiday ( no we haven't been to the Carribean or Mauritius as of yet ) but we do like Travel that has a historical twang to it.

In the summer we went to Rome for the week and it was somewhere we had always wanted to go as a family, previous years have included ,Egypt,Holland,Spain etc. Never one to shy away from a Location I go full throttle into looking and investigating where we are going , we are not actually a beach holiday family. we have been on holidays where there is a beach and we do go and relax for a bit on them but we always find ourselves going off and exploring our surroundings.

History through travelis connecting us as a family as it was this summer that we went to Rome just before the teen went off to study Archaeology and guess what he is back this Friday. OOOH excitement that reminds me to sort out his room as I have been using it as a storage facility and my storing the tuff has made the rest of the house look tidy. But he will be back on Friday lovingly clogging up the house with all his clobber.

Going off topic a bit I have found him going away bit hard this was coupled with losing the teaching assistant side of my job it was a double blow and I have had a hard very hard time adjusting to all that has gone off. It is a sort of grief I think a different sort of grief but a grief none the less , I dislike change and when it happens it really does rock my world.

Travel is my sanctuary and how we love it so as family and this Christmas we are off to Venice and I think it going to be magical we seem to be loving Italy so much having been bitten by the romance of it in Rome.
