Things are expensive over there and the exchange rate doesn't help but the opportunity to experience some of Europe with our kids was worth every over priced British Pound and Euro. Exposing them to a world outside of what we live every day and helping them to understand and experience that it is a big world out there, is truly a priceless experience. They probably won't remember too many trip details down the road, the recall will begin to take shape around the pictures and video. But who knows what the long term impact will be? We will continue to provide experiences to challenge and expand their developing minds to recognize the amazing possibilities and opportunities they have before them.
Enough of that! We had a blast and by following some of my own saving/spending rules, it was not a budget busting experience. Whoa!
These kids hardly know who the Beatles are but they got the full-on Abbey Road experience!
Time to start planning the next trip... where should we head next??
