This is the first year we’ve travelled away from home for Christmas since our girls were almost 2 years old (they’re now 7). We figured a nice white Christmas (weather permitting) would be a wonderful experience for them – especially one surrounded by the Norwegian side of the family. Like hundreds (or thousands) of others, we decided to make this an extended family holiday season. So we’re now in Norway to be with family for the two-week-long Christmas break. I’m making sure to document as much of our trip as I can and thought I’d give you glimpses of our holiday stay.
At 7 years old, our girls are quite the seasoned travellers and make specific requests for the trip when they know the stops along the way, like Heathrow. Dining at the Giraffe restaurant in Terminal 5 at Heathrow International Airport in London is one of those requests when it comes to travelling to Europe. The menu has a broad international selection of dishes but their main interest is in collecting more of those cute, colorful little plastic giraffes they give out. But it’s these little things that they’ll talk about in future years when they’re on their own travelling the world, so of course we are happy to oblige.
More to come…stay tuned.
