I'm not a huge fan of London, but we decided to spend half term week there to meet a new baby and to see my sister. We enjoyed walking around and took advantage of the free museums (Science, Natural History and the British Museum). I think the key thing was we didn't overdo it at each museum, just stuck to what we wanted to see and only spent half days there. The kids have been studying the Romans, Greeks and Egyptians and I had been studying Dinosaurs with one of my classes, so we managed to briefly see the exhibits that related to our topics. We also managed to see The Lion King, a wonderful show, we would all highly recommend seeing it. Thanks to those who came up to see us, hopefully one day we'll manage a trip to visit friends a bit further out.
Our overseas move started in 2005, with a brief vacation in India. Then we joined the Tsunami relief team in Sri Lanka for a couple of years. We have just finished 8 1/2yrs being based in Nairobi, Kenya. Now based in Geneva, Switzerland with Murray in a global role still travelling around to the hot spots. Hoping to make the most of being in Europe.... full info
