Now that the Belgian halfterm vacation draws to an end, our family is urged to pick up the usual routines again. So I'm longing to finally find time to start writing and posting my report snippets below. Our annual London family journey gave us five fine days to go out on another discovery, with the same fine group of five as last year (3 adults / 2 kids: my niece, my husband, our two boys almost 6 and 9, and myself).
From experience, we didn't want to set out with a too tight itinerary, except for my regular weekend classes and a few tickets booked in advance. Travelling with kids doesn't sit well with rigid scheduling, but of course I still indulged in browsing TA for possible scenarios, efficient transport and new suggestions. This time our wishlist covered a mixture of some new territory (Horniman Museum, Museum of Childhood, Thames Barrier, Royal Artillery Firepower) and a return to some bigshot sights, back by popular request (Tower of London, Natural History Museum), and as you'd guess some theatre too, sure, how could we resist?!
