Homeward Bound

It was finally the day we were heading home, and after 9 and a half weeks of travelling, we were ready to go. With military precision, we got our luggage and children to Heathrow Aiport by 7.50am. Craig took back our rental car to the Europcar off-site and caught the shuttle bus back (eventually). Now…

Squirrels, pretty parks and friendly faces in London

After a very long day of travelling, I’d hoped that we’d manage a sleep in. Unfortunately, that was not to be the case and we all woke up early. We were also on central European time which was an hour later than London, until the next day when summer time started and it would be…

Long road to London

It was 17 hours from one bed to another on our trip from Copenhagen to London.

Darling Denmark: Zoos, family and bubbles

After a quiet night in, especially with both the girls in bedrooms, the next morning we had news that my cousin, Berit who we were to see that afternoon was in hospital. So we had to rethink our day plans. After a quick maps search we found the zoo was 40mins walk away so off…

More planes and long travel days!

Our flight was at 2.45pm in the afternoon to Munich, we figured we had some time for a final walk along the Riva, coffee and gelato. Of course by the time we actually finished all that we were cutting it pretty close for checking into our flight on time. We arrived at the airport by…

BrĂ¢c, Barracks and Beaches in Split

Our luck continued with the weather bringing sunshine and warm temperatures. After such a full on day at the Krka waterfalls we decided to take it slow on Monday. On the map we’d been left of Split we could see several nice beaches to the left of the city. We found our way to the…

Waterfalls, water views and walking in Split

An early morning coffee and croissant were in order to welcome Zoe to the holiday fold. She had looked up a third wave coffee shop on Google and was very keen to take us there. Unfortunately it turned out to be closed in yet another un-google-notified closure. We were very disappointed but made do with…

Settling into Spectacular Split

After weeks of travelling and moving every 3 days or so, it was glorious to finally put down roots for 11 days in Split, Croatia. We couldn’t help but love it when it looked like this: As always the first order on the agenda was grocery shopping which Thea, Steph and I managed at the…

Mooching around Munich

This won’t be a very exciting post. We had 2 nights in Munich to drop off our rental car and pick up our friends Andy and Steph for our next leg to Split, Croatia. At this stage in the trip 6 weeks into our 9 week journey we were pretty tired. A little bit of…
