Just outside Cardiff, the little town of St Fagans is pretty and ancient enough to be a museum in its own right. A gorgeous old church and a collection of thatched cottages nestle in the unspoiled green valley. A little further along the road, a lane really, is the Museum of Welsh Life St Fagans AKA Wales National History Museum. I'd never visited until recently and … [Read more...]

I'm sure we can help you plan on a wonderful few days or weekend in London over … [Read more...]
Of all the cities in the world, London is my top pick for children because of the wealth of things to do in the UK's capital, many of them free. Of course London can be expensive too, be ready for that, but the devalued pound and good exchange rates could help foreign visitors a lot. Flights to London have also become more affordable lately. Some ideas, tips, reviews and … [Read more...]

London has a fairly well-deserved reputation for being an expensive city to visit. If you don't have some insider know-how and few like-a-local tips, your London trip could be anything but cheap. We are Londoners, at times, we've lived and worked in London, our kids were born there, we've slow travelled in London and we've taken many a weekend or short holiday in our favourite … [Read more...]
We took the chance to tour the Royal Yacht Britannia as part of our UK ( Scotland) road trip. A few photos and words on what's inside the Royal Yacht Britannia in Edinburgh.

If you, like us, had been watching the Netflix series about The Queen, The Crown, you may be all the … [Read more...]

One of us is absolutely terrified of heights ( did you see my performance on the … [Read more...]
