But, after an entire year away from my family, I must admit I would always choose to spend a summer vacation with my family rather than friends.After all, my friends are what I get back to when the vacation time ends.
That year, this was the strangest and most unexpected twist. I don’t think I’ll be forgetting about the other places and vacations, too, but this is the summer when I understood that there is nothing more important than family.
Whenever a friend jokes about my summer vacationing when I tell them I won’t be joining them this year too, I just remember that summer and everything seems right.
Each summer is beautiful for me because I spend it with my family.
I am well aware that people my age spend their summer vacations with friends, partying all the time.
Every summer we spend together is like this now, but now it is not such a strange thing.
After over half a year being separated and not living together, we would be happy if someone put us in one room for an entire month.
I don’t think I’ll ever envy my friends for spending their vacation partying.
I will pity them for being away from their family once again because holidays and vacations are best spent with the people you love most.
What I do know at this point is that when I have my own family, I will take them to that same spot and set the same rules as my father.
I hope my fishing experience will be terrible as his, and they will fall in love with it.
