Over on Australian Observer, Paul Barratt's The summer holiday drive recalls the summer holiday drives from Armidale to the coast. This was an annual ritual for many inland New Englanders, something that I have written on.
Those posts attracted a range of nostalgic comments from others with similar experiences. That got me thinking. As part of my work in documenting New England history and life, it might be interesting to further document some of our collective childhood holiday experiences.
Did you have a favourite holiday spot? What are your memories of getting there, what did you do while there? What things are now draped in nostalgia?
