Problems of travelling with kids, oh yes, there are a few. Some consider them major problems, others, tiny inconveniences outweighed by rainbow benefits.

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.

Some ideas, tips, reviews and … [Read more...]
