Believe it or not, I never went on a real vacation until I married Bill just under 4 years ago. I grew up in Miami and both of my parent's famies lived in Alabama so vacation was always to put us 3 kids in the car late at night and drive 13 hours straight through the night so we'd sleep almost until we got there. Then we visited the grandparents and went home. Never any other kind of vacation.
When I was married before it was just to visit families so my first real vacation was with Bill except for one trip he and I made to Boston in 1970 to visit his grandmother, but we still saw stuff.
My mother has never been on a real vacation on her life and doesn't want to go and neither of my brothers has ever been on a vacation. They run their own business and time away has never been a possibility.
Grandparents - they were farmers so I doubt they went anywhere. Mom grew up without even a family car.
Travelling is very new to me and I'm loving every minute of it. We are fortunate to have military flight benefits and are able to find inexpensive cruises!
Actually (and this may sound strange) I'm now that it was that way becuase ever where I go with my husband is new to me - I'm discovering the world with him. Now I wouldn't have it any other way - I'm glad I'm seeing all these places for the first time with him.
