Wishing I was back on a boat in the middle of the sea
If I could relive one childhood memory, it would be_____
When I was younger we went on holiday as a family with my grandparents and we went to the South of France. It is without doubt one of my favourite childhood memories.
What would yours be?
Would you rather lose all of your money and valuables or all of the pictures you have ever taken?
I think I would personally rather loose all my money as I love looking through all my pictures and reminiscing about old times and I also enjoy looking through photos and seeing family members who are no longer with us. I know I have memories stored in my brain but I love having the physical memories as there are always thinks you forget that happened.
Which would you rather?
A few years ago when I was travelling in Australia I went one of their trips to Fraser Island. I went on my own and it was one of the last trips that I did before coming back to the UK. This was the first trip that I had done in Australia on my own and I was quite nervous because I did have to travel to a different part of Australia for the trip. Travelling around Australia is super easy though as there are loads of coach companies you can use.
The trip to Fraser island consisted of camping on the island with a group of people and driving around to different areas of the island using 4×4’s. I had seen pictures of the island and it looked amazing so I knew it was something I needed to do before I returned home. As I had gone on this trip on my own I was super nervous because I didn’t know anyone but I soon realised there was a lot of people in the same situation as me. We were split into groups of 8 and these were the people who you would be camping with and those who you would share the car with.
We went to the local supermarkets before we left to stock up of food for the next few days and then we set off to find Fraser island. We drove though the forests and along the beach. Our car did at one point get stuck in the sand but luckily we were able to get out. We visited Lake McKenzie, the champagne pools, Lake Wabby and Eli Creek. We also visited Indian Head where the views were amazing and we also stopped by the Maheno Shipwreck. We had BBQ’s on an evening and enjoyed watching the sun set and rise on the beach.
This was a once in a lifetime trip and It was truly an amazing experience and I thoroughly enjoyed every minute.
This time last year I was looking forward to booking a holiday, I had no idea where I was going to go but I knew that I fancied going somewhere I hadn’t visited before. I ended up going to Croatia and stayed in Sibenik. I hadn’t heard much about Sibenik apart from that Game of Thrones had been filmed there. The photos looked amazing so I was really excited to go.
The hotel that I said at was amazing I didn’t realise when I booked but it turned out that there was 5 hotels joined together and there was also a campsite in the middle of the resort. There was lots of swimming pools and restaurants available to use. The resort was right on the beach and I spent most of the days there chilling on the beach.
The sea was the clearest bluest blue I have ever seen and I couldn’t look at it without feeling like I wanted to jump in.
I explored Sibenik town which was really interesting, there was loads of small alleys and cute little shops to look around. I went to see if I recognised any parts from Game of Thrones which I did.
I went on a boat trip to Krka National Park which was really enjoyable. The boat ride was a lot of fun and the Krka National Park was breath taking. I got to go in the river and see the amazing waterfalls. I have never been anywhere quite like this but the views were amazing.
Croatia was one of the most beautiful countries I have ever been too and I would definitely like to go again sometime in the near future.
When I was younger we used to always go stay on a farm in Aberdaron in Wales. We went most years and I have the best memories from it. My Nan and Grandad used to come as well and sometimes other family members would come to visit while we were there too.
Aberdaron is only a small village surrounded by the most idyllic beaches. There is a similar vibe to Devon with the beaches being quite similar. We used to enjoy exploring the nearby towns and chilling on the beach followed by an evening BBQ.
None of my family had been there for quite a few years but we all have so many great memories. Not so long ago I was staying about an hour away and I decided to go and revisit to see if it was how I remembered it or to see if it had changed. As we started to get closer everything just felt more and more familiar. We arrived in the village and it was really surreal because all of these memories were coming back to me. The village is exactly the same as it was back all of those years ago.
I walked along the beach and I fell back in love with this place and I really would like to go back this summer and take my family with me. I sent them a picture asking them to guess where I was and the instantly knew because I had the picture taken on a wall that we always sat on in the village. My nan even has a painting of the town in her house.
Aberdaron will always be a special place for my family and I and I do hope we continue to visit there in the future.
