Father’s Day is just around the corner and we Traveling Mamas love our Traveling Papas. For me, I credit my own father for my love of travel. He worked extra shifts at the fire department to make sure our family took a family vacation each year, be it to the Smoky Mountains or the Gulf Coast beaches.
When my dad retired, he took the entire family to Walt Disney World, so that we could all share this first visit with Mickey Mouse. A few years later, he organized a family road trip from Louisiana to Colorado, with stops at odd roadside attractions along the way. A travel wish he’s had for the longest time was to take a cruise and to visit Europe. Thanks to Carnival Cruise Lines, I was able to bring both my parent’s along for the Carnival Magic cruise with European stops.
One thing we never really got into while I was growing up was camping. That’s why, when my dad retired and bought an RV, we thought he was a bit crazy. But traveling the US from an RV was something my dad had always wanted to do, but never had the time to do it. One item everyone should have while traveling from campsite to campsite is a Rayovac Sportsman Extreme flashlight.
