I was very lucky in that I went to the Netherlands almost every summer and from there we travelled all over Europe. We also knew most of the carribean by the time I was ten, and a good part of the states, and into the middle east as well. I did alot of travel before children, just basically continued the way I had grown up, seeing as many places as I could, I love history, so I love travel. With my son, we also have done most of Western Europe, a great deal of the carribean, the states, all of Eastern Canada, Alberta, and we also did alot of camping as he really liked that. We started to cruise a few years ago as it was a change from the usual . We have planned over the next 12 months year an 11 day cruise, a trip to the maritimes and a land trip to the carribean .
