Holiday Anticipation

Isaac and I are off on holiday tomorrow.  We're going to Cumbria on an adventure.  It's a big adventure!  A 6 hour train ride to get there.  Visiting my best friend.  Why does my best friend live so far away?  

We are staying for 3 nights.  3 nights away from the little. I've only ever been away from her for 24 hours before.

I think Isaac is going to love split parent holiday.  I can't wait to see what 3 days with just the big is.  

Also, he's 4, which means his train travel is free!  But please cross your fingers for empty seats, because if not he will have to sit on my lap, and 6 hours of train will go slow with 40 pounds of toddler on my lap.

The end of the trip is the biggest adventure - we are flying home.  First we are taking a 2 hour train, then a 30 minute tram, then a 1 hour flight, then a 30 minute bus, then another 1 hour train and finally a 30 minute bus.  

It's basically a transport adventure, with 3 days of seeing my best friend in the middle.  

I am very excited.


  1. So exciting! I can't wait to hear more about this adventure.
    And with kids the travel to and from is definitely a BIG part of the adventure. Our son flew for the first time ever this year and it was SO much fun!

  2. Oh, have so much fun seeing your best friend. Mine lives far away too so I feel the excitement for you to finally see her again :)

  3. Ooh! This does sound exciting. I hope you enjoy it. Isaac will probably love that last travel day. Oh, and my fingers are crossed that you don't have to hold him on your lap for the 6 hour train ride!

  4. My 2 year old nephew was visiting recently and he is always so happy when anything moves (train, plane, bus you name it). I hope you have so much fund and that the journey will go smoothly with lots of entertainment for your 4 year old.

  5. Oh how exciting. Hope all goes smoothly and you have a lovely time visiting with your friend.

  6. I need to read ahead to see how this all turned out! (I am so, so, far behind...) I'm really curious about how your return trip turned into such an adventure, with so many different types of travel? Does the train on which you traveled to your friend's house not go back to where you live? Or, were you planning to visit another location and I missed that?
