Our Travel History – Europe

When Simon and I lived in London from 1998 – 2002, (before the children) we had the extremely good fortune to be able to do lots of European Travel. We marveled at how easy and affordable European travel was from London compared to Australia, and we joined the backpack brigade as soon as possible. I’ve been digging through old photo’s of our travels, and want to share a snippet of the places and experiences that we had. These are the days when our wanderlust began…

All photographs are our own, taken a long time ago!

There were lots of other amazing places that we visited in Europe, some I’ve forgotten, and some I just can’t find photos of, (it was over 10 years ago!). We are itching to get back to Europe with the children this time.

Have you been? We’d love to hear your tips on great places to visit, especially with children, so please leave a comment 🙂
