Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories - 16 December - Christmas Travel

Thomas MacEntee from Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories says:

“Over the river and through the woods” as the song goes . . . Christmas time can often mean travel home or meeting up with family at a special destination. Do you remember traveling back home for Christmas? Were there any trips that standout in your memory? What methods of travel have you used to make the trip home?Tell us about your Christmas travel and your memories of Christmases past.

I don't think there is a transport method we haven't used to get to our Christmas destination.  Well, maybe a bicycle or a donkey.

We have used shanks pony to walk across the creek to my sister-in-law's for Christmas.

We have driven from Brisbane to the Blue Mountains.

I have caught a plane.

Here I am at Mascot Airport with my mother's turkey stuffed firmly under my arm.

We have caught the car ferry to Stradbroke Island for Christmas in years gone by.  You can see the joy in Caspar's face here.  Such a great feeling to get on that ferry and leave the troubles of the world behind you and enter island time.
