I have to admit to getting quite lost in the romance of where this wonderful collection of vintage luggage have travelled. The tales they must be able to tell.
Norah always enjoyed her holidays. ..and what a variety of travel she must have had through out the decades. From travelling by train to good old british seaside towns in the early years, to jetsetting to the other side of the world to enjoy the beauty of New Zealand in her later years. What a difference.
Of course there was always the time she embarked on a caoch trip to the Isle of Wight with holiday companion, Gertie (my two nans together, what a mixture!) ….they chatted that much , neither of them had realised they had been on the boat until they arrived at the hotel!!!
So, here for you to enjoy are some travelling delights….
As we come to the time of year when the roads and motorways of Great Britain become laden with with us all trying to get away for that well earned break, I felt a little mooch of the good old caravan was worthy.
Norah did in fact have a caravan along the southwest coastline and I think it was called ‘Fire fly’. As I recall from past family stories there was …the time they turned up and some one else had ‘let themselves in’., the walking across fields to ask Mr Farmer for fresh milk, climbing over and falling off fences…the usual adventures of wellies and toilet paper under your arm and the ‘bucket’ for nighttime convinience!!!!
Summers of the past are always a great place to revisit to capture a childhood memory of rock pooling, paddling and getting sand in your tin teapot!
Here are a few treasures I have come across which you can find on the ever faithful ebay! Great inspiration and I love that these holidays continue…enjoyxxx
