It should be clear that we like to visit the museum. And fortunately there are many museums in London. Almost all suitable to take your child with you.

Strolling around the streets of Shoreditch

London has several neighborhoods. Districts that are fully in bloom (and expensive) such as Kensington, Notting Hill and Chelsea. But also neighborhoods that are ‘upcoming’, like Peckham that I wrote about earlier. In between you also have neighborhoods that were once ‘upcoming’ and are now labeled as the city’s trendiest district: ‘The place to be’….

Deers in Richmond Park

The season Autumn is visually here. When I’m looking out of the window I see a field of leaves everywhere around the house. I really love this season with all those beautiful colors. On those fallen days, we really like to dress up warmly and go out for a good walk. Last weekend, we pulled out…

Famous Grouse

On Friday we cook something special or we go out for a dinner at a restaurant. Last Friday I chose for prepping a meal for Ralf and Lara. I wanted to make something traditional and asked the locals. Almost everyone said: ‘Grouse’. Grouse is a rich tasty course meat, with a strong smell that owes…
