The mass exodus for March Break has begun (or about to begin shortly). Families are packing up their kids and all their luggage and heading off to places like Florida, Mexico and California for a week (sometimes two). When I was a kid, my family was really big into downhill skiing so our March Break trips always involved a skiing destination like Alberta, Vermont or New York State. One year though my brother and I got lucky and my parents took us to a warm vacation spot…San Diego! I remember being so excited to not have to pack 60 layers of clothes for that trip. Ahhh the memories.
Speaking of memories, today’s Vintage Photo Tuesday is a continuation of a post I did last year on the same topic, exploring other people’s memories of their vacations, near and far (I found so many images that I just had to do a part 2). Lets Begin!
Summer 1948. Leaving White River, Colorado.
“Entering”. The same family pictured above (now with their son), clearly on a “Forests of Colorado trip”.
Mountain Lake Cabin Getaway (in an adorable deer sweater).
It’s not a Holiday if you don’t stay at The Holiday Inn (1960’s).
The Phoenix Rises?
1950’s vacationing in Europe. Lots to see and lots of pictures to be taken.
60’s Family Vacation Road Trip. Crossing the Mackinac Bridge.
“I’ve arrived, it’s Fishing time!”.
I don’t know about you, but when I’m on a trip I try to always pick up a small souvenir to have a physical reminder of the place I was at. I even do this when I’m transferring thru airports in countries I have never been to (I was technically there, so why not remember it?).
Our couple below, looks like they are about to pickup a few tokens themselves, after they get a picture with the locked up pilgrim.
1930’s: Inspiration Point-Grand Canyon.
The Grand Canyon is a must see for any traveler. I have only seen it from a plane, so one day I hope to get there and see it “up close”.
Hawaii, a dream destination.
Gathering all these photos together for this week’s post has given me serious Wanderlust. I now want to hop on a plane or jump in my car and go somewhere fun.
Question time: If you could go ANYWHERE right now and cost was not an issue, where would you go? Share in the comments below.
P.S. If you live in Toronto and your looking for something to do this Saturday, I’m emceeing a ‘Nancy Drew Anthology book launch and reading‘. 3pm-5:30pm, FREE, lots of amazing guest readers (and other goodies) and it’s being held in Kensington Market. See you there!
