May Half Term Activities At London Transport Museums

If you are in London, this May Half Term, why not take a visit to London Transport Museum  for some fab storytime sessions and creative workshops for families. Your children can get artistic with foam block printing inspired by the Museum’s iconic posters, and make their own postcard to take home, or listen to a fun storytime session about the loveable pelican Mr Beak.

Welcome To My First Post

So here we are, starting a travel blog to work alongside my other blog Travel is important to us as a family and I believe that children learn a lot from travelling. It is so important for their life experiences, and they learn more than being in a classroom learning about places. Yes I do disagree with school fines, yet I see why they are in place. My philosophy is that if you can only afford a holiday in term time, then just pay the fine. The fine is still a great deal cheaper than booking a holiday in the school breaks. But saying that, I don't take holidays in the school term because you can get a cheap one by looking on line yourself. And that is what brings us to this blog, I am taking Tilly Inter-railing in the summer and we will be getting in quite a few places at the fraction of the price of a holiday booked through a travel agent. Another reason for choosing now to travel is that I am 44 this year and Tilly is 6 so If I don't do it now, then we will never do it because by the time Tilly is a teenager she wont want to be going back packing with her 50 something mother.
