So we did go on our family vacation. After much discussion, argument and negotiation we went to…Turkey!
Yep, we spent 4 nights in Istanbul, 2 nights in a cave hotel in Cappadocia and 6 nights at a seaside resort in Bodrum.
First of all the good – the incredibly fresh and tasty food, the hot air ballooning at sunrise,
the fascinating historical sites, the friendly people, the varied and exotic shopping.
I could go on and on.
Now for the bad – early morning travel days, crying babies on planes,
pouting teenagers and my husband panicking and stressing over insignificant details.
The ugly? – my daughter, the Demon Child, clashing with my husband, the Original Obnoxious One over the silliest, tiniest inconsequential “stuff” . Of course that led to a major family temper tantrum the day before my birthday.
Ah well…we all made it home in one piece and did share some amazing moments along the way.
