About London, United Kingdom :

London is one of the most magnificent (and expensive) cities in the world. It maintains a regal air from its majestic past (helps that they still have a reigning Monarch!), but its also where you will find the most cutting-edge art, restaurants and shops. London is also one of the most kid-friendly cities in the world – walk into any museum, chances are it’s free for kids, and they have a special activity going on.

GET TO KNOW Ioana

What do you love most about living in London?

There’s so much to love! The social life, friends, cultural events, the buzz, the parks.

What’s one London-ism/Cultural quirk? 

Moaning about the tube! People here do it constantly!

Why is traveling important for a family?

Hm. Where do I start? Let’s just say that our little one (2 years old) says often to us: Office close. Airport please !

What’s the hardest thing about traveling with kids?

It requires certain planning, structure and safe countries. For over 15 years we’ve explore the world very differently and spontaneously – with small babies there were some tradeoffs we had to do. I wouldn’t recommend for example Nigeria or Guatemala with small kids.

What’s your favorite family travel destination in the world?

Have few, depending on season, little people ages

What’s on your travel wish list?

Nevis & Costa Rica.

What’s one thing you do on every trip that makes traveling with kids easier?

Be playful yourself and load the ipad with funny apps as well as good books for you and children.
