Holiday On A Scooter – Vintage Travel Photo

My adventurous nature isn’t something that fell from the sky. My dad grew up with camping with his parents and my mum used to go out with her sister, cousin and friends to explore the world on a scooter.

They drove all the way from Amsterdam to Swedish Lapland (top province of the country) once. The girls would simply pack their (saddle)bags and drive off with a map and a YHA membership card.

What a great way to travel, don’t you think? It’s something I have never done before, but it must be great to be so independent in your transport. In that time, there was no mobile phone or internet, so she would only send a postcard home every two months or so. Keeping in touch with home while travelling wasn’t so easy as it is now. If I remind my mum about that when I haven’t called her in a week, she denies it, of course.

Did you ever go on holiday on a bike or a scooter? And how often do you contact home when you’re away?
