Everywhere in Rome is a photo moment, especially after a shower with the pavements and roads gleaming and glistening.

Gdansk, Trojmiasto, Three Cities

Jet into history with Gdansk, Sopot and Gydinia, easy with two airports. Visit where World War 2 began at Westerplatte, back in 1939, not 1942;-) Go sightseeing around the town of Gdansk with its wonderful architecture with overtones of Amsterdam, and full of history and museums. There’s a zoo for those heavily into incarcerterated animals,  Gydnia with its tall ships, World War 2 destroyer and good restaurants which also happens to be clean and well cared for. You can even take a ferry to Hel, but in this case return! Or for those that like to party there is Sopot which is a full on party town, betwixt Gdansk and Gydnia. A place with a little something for everyone. Bedzie fajne!

Leaf and Stone Sintra Portugal

For the children these small towers were castles and keeps with high walls and prwling Orcs. They became knights and princesses. Attackers and besiegers. A place for them to run in full imaginative flow and playful fun. Better than any amusement park as they gave vent to their imaginations. Wonderful.

Natural History Museum London Town

Opened in 1881, but dating back as an idea to  to 1753, this is ‘the’ museum for children of all ages. A hop and skip from South Kensington or Gloucester Road tube stations’ means it is also easy for even the most directionally challenged people to find! I speak from first hand experience of this debilitating sydrome. The exhibits cover such a wide range that is simply too much to take in on one visit. The architecture itself is also a delight and it well worth to take time out from the exhibits to lets your eyes run over every nook and cranny. The icing on the cake is that admission is free. What more do you want?
