Photo Friday: Spud's Obsession — The Tube

LONDON   |   TRAVELS WITH KID

Our dear boy was literally obsessed with the Tube while in London. Within in a day of arriving he was our self-appointed tourist navigation coordinator.


And a credit to the Tube system and its wayfinding signage; an 8 year old can get around this city with little or no help. Even I could manage it in a pinch!



It took a little while before we realized that Spud had an agenda: to ride every line at least once before our 11 days in the city were up. Sometimes, as you can imagine, that meant taking some pretty creative routes ... that could take a very long time! But we did it. We hit every line.


We got pretty good at it but sometimes our timing was terrible ... here the after work rush was lined up out into the street! That's when it's time to find a cafe (or pub!) to wait it out. And we did.


Sometimes it's more fun to play with your own Tube train.


Especially at the Tate Modern, as it turns out.

Photo Friday: A London Playground

LONDON   |   TRAVELS WITH KID

Some of the best memories of travel are when you stumble across a little gem that you would never find in a guide book but is exactly what you need, when you need it. On our way to the Tower of London we found this sweet little playground, nestled behind an ancient stonewall. We had happy break from the touristy hubbub. It was so good we came back again the next day.
