I've been lucky to have been on quite a few holidays and mini breaks, or even fun days out as a child and as an adult.
I wish I could remember every single place I have been to.
I have particular memories of certain places but have no idea where the places actually are.
I went on a cruise with my parents, brother and nan in 1998 and a second cruise in 1999. The second cruise was two weeks long and I can only remember about half of the destinations.
It's quite sad that I visited these places and can't remember them.
I don't want to go through the same with the boys. Not being able to tell them where we've visited and which place matches which memory. So, I'm going to put together a folder with a map of the UK for us to mark any holidays or mini breaks we have here, as well as days out when we visit other counties, town and attractions, obviously marking them with an 'X'.
We'll have pages to fill out writing down where we went, and what we did. As well as basic information like the date and so on.
And I also want to include a map of the world, for them to mark the different countries they have visited, again writing basic information such as the date as well as what they did, who they went with, and how long they stayed.
I don't want it to be too in depth, unless if it needs to be. I just want it to be a reference for the future.
