Happy holiday memories certain to last a lifetime

THERE'S nothing quite like a holiday.

Whether it be a quick weekend getaway or a six month stint backpacking across Europe, they give us memories we will carry with us for life.

Chrissi Barrett said her cruise to PNG in August this year was particularly special as her and her husband Chris had lost a lot of weight and it was the first time they had seen themselves dressed up for as long as they could remember.

Their kids Jessica, Wade, Katelin and Abbygale always come with them on trips to make those treasured family memories.

For Jane Fenton, her favourite holiday was when she lived in Europe and worked for Topdeck tours.

Showing tourists around Europe, she had fun in sun at the beach in Italy and then later in the year enjoyed glistening sheets of white snow in Switzerland.
