Our Hosts' Vintage Summer Pictures
Travel back in time with our Travel Channel hosts. We asked them to send pictures from the '60s, '70s, '80s and '90s, reminiscent of their summer days.
Anthony Melchiorri fishing in New York"This picture of me on the lake is from when I used to go to fishing in Warwick, NY." – Anthony Melchiorri, Hotel Impossible 960 1280
Don Wildman hitch hiking as a young adult"1976, Route 295, New Jersey. I was a rabid hitchhiker in my teens. That creepy, haggard kid you see by the highway and think, "Who are his parents?!" Well, somehow mine just didn’t ask questions when I headed off with my North Face, clutching my sign. Eh, nothing bad ever happened and I turned out okay." - Don Wildman, Mysteries at the Museums, Monumental Mysteries, Off Limits 960 1280
Don Wildman at the Jersey Shore"September 1978, Avalon, NJ. If you're from Jersey, summer means The Shore. We were a Sea Isle City family, but when I got older, like here (too old for my own good, I'm sure of that much) I was hanging elsewhere -- listening to Boston and playing air guitar. Yes, that’s a beer, and no I'm not yet 21 or even close. Nice Foster-Grants, though." - Don Wildman, Mysteries at the Museums, Monumental Mysteries, Off Limits 960 1280
Laurence Martin with his mothers in the '40s, in England"Laurence (age 1), his mother (Elizabeth Josephine Martin) and his sister (Sally Martin … ) at Bournemouth Beach leading to Branksome Chine about 1948 in England. The family had a beach hut there. They would spend every weekend there." – Sally Martin, Baggage Battles 960 1280
Sally Martin with family in California"Me (age 16) with my mother (Carolyn East), brother (David East) and sister (Susan East) on our boat, the Valhalla. We took a 2-week family trip on the boat from Newport Beach to Catalina Island; then down to San Diego, on to Ensenada, Mexico, and back up to Newport Beach in July, 1969. I remember listening to the first moon landing on the radio while lying on the deck." -- Sally Martin, Baggage Battles 960 1280
