When we decided to launch our around the world adventure in the UK I was excited.(If you haven’t read my official launch post check here) I have actually been to the UK before. My sister and her husband spent 7 years going to school, working and living in England. My husband and I had an opportunity to spend a couple of weeks with them and it was awesome. We travelled from the southern tip of England all the way up to Glasgow, Scotland. I was so thrilled to pull out my old photo albums (yep, a physical photo album) and share many funny stories with my daughters. A great introduction to the UK.
We stopped off at the library and picked up “This is London” by Miroslav Sasek . This book is beautifully illustrated and simply takes you through the city of London. A great conversation starter. After reading the book we were inspired to recreate the London with this incredible block set that my sister purchased for my girls many years ago. Here is the city scape my girls created.
