Love, love, LOVE this trip report! Not only is it a great, humorous read but it is FULL of wonderful tips for traveling parents. And the Lessons Learned section is an ADDED BONUS. Wonderful, really wonderful!

Surfmom - are you still around?

Well, regardless, I wanted to send this compliment and thankyou out to you. Thanks so much for this FABULOUS Trip Report. The "Lessons Learned" was VERY MUCH appreciated. I love all your stories too! The one about your special dinner in Paris and walk back to the apartment was very heartwarming. These are the joys of traveling with kids, I guess! Somehow makes up for the mishaps (like the time your daughter lost her band....oh my!)

Thanks again!

A really great report and especially helpful to people travelling with children as it highlights that what adults think might be fun/informative/worthy and what children actually find enjoyable can be worlds apart. Love that your children took charge of things like the tube train route organisation. Btw, your husband was very clever to use behaviour on the flight home as leverage for future travel. Bravo!

hey guys... thanks for the shoutout! Kids are older and this summer we are planning another great vacation - although, in full disclosure, I never posted last summer's trip to Switzerland.

I go back and re-read what I've written when it comes planning time - since they were my impressions just after each trip. Helps me remember what works... what doesn't... what to waste time on... and what not to waste time on!

One of the things that makes me feel good is that our kids love our trips and we could probably do it a lot cheaper and easier since they always say the most fun part is family time. (how about a staycation then?!?) With everyone pulled different directions on a daily basis, it is fun to re-group and spend time as a family unit.

happy planning all!
{and go post those trip reports - they do help others!}
