If you are a young adult, maybe you’ve recently left home, or you’re still at home but very busy, I would recommend going on holiday with your parents.
As kids we loved family holidays but as you get older parents seem to cramp your style or you just prefer going off on a mad one with your friends.
However, I have just achieved the impossible. I combined a friends holiday and a family holiday. My parents had the time of their lives getting drunk and singing karaoke, or leading a conga line of stags and hens through a bar, and of course getting to spend time with their one and only. (A rare occurrence as I haven’t lived in the UK with them for a long time).
Instead of cramping my style, they brought an added dimension to the holiday. My friends loved it. And because my parents had unlimited access, they weren’t begging me to hang out with them and they knew when to back off, go back to the hotel and let my continue the night with my friends (old and new 🙂 )
As we get older and busier, it is very important to continue making time for our parents. They have dedicated their lives to us, so jiving with them around an Irish Pub in Spain after they’ve treated us to dinner and a couple rounds of vodka is the least we can do.
