London lifestyle & travels with kids and babies
#CulturedKids started gloriously the decade in Seychelles – we raved extensively about Banyan Tree Mahe sustainability agenda and conservation centre by pristine Anse Intendance; Seychelles with kids at Kempinski ; Mahe barefoot luxury and fine dining; and last but not least reflections and differences Maldives versus Seychelles as inquired by friends and fellow parents. And London in February 2020 continues with some serious cultural treats.
Cirque du Soleil Luzia brightened us up, Mexico comes to London in full glory but this goes beyond Mexican heritage, landscapes, treasures, enchanted flora and fauna. It’s about love, passion, grief, lost worlds and hope – spectacular and surreally dreammy. It runs at the iconic Royal Albert Hall until March 1st, grab your tickets in here and do let us know if Luzia steals your hearts as badly as it has done to ours!
Some further exotic travels environmentally friendly at Saatchi galleries – the boy king Tut exhibition is fabulous. It took me and the 6 years old slightly longer than 90 minutes and we prepped it the day before at the Egyptean Galleries of the British Museum. We are still raving about it and the 6 years old crafted his own exhibition and tomb at home out of a shoe box – nothing like some creative fun recycling.
On February 1st at Destinations Travel show we topped up our monthly wanderlust dose: this year we signed up for Green Peace UK , talked about Australian bushfires, missmanaged environment crisis, my love and volunteering days for Kangaroo island. We also played Ninja with central Japan stand, talked about Dominica the nature island becoming safer since we’ve been and wondered at Wanderlust travel photos of the year.
On February 4th Royal Opera House spoilt us with a fabulous invite for Alice’s Adventures Under Ground. London in February 2020 gets to be fun, frantic and utterly fantastic with director Antony McDonald. The surreal world of Lewis Carroll’s Alice is given an extra twist in Gerald Barry’s operatic treatment, this is one short, sharp shot of mayhem and ideal for anyone from age 3 to 103!
Meet the kaleidoscope of colourful characters in this joyful, headlong rush into a world gone deliciously mad. Running until February 9th, grab your chance to see Alice’s Adventures Underground in here.
Also this week Museum of Architecture and The School for Creative Thinkers treats us with a creativity and critical reasoning workshop. With content inspired by nature, each session is aimed at allowing children to get really hands-on in developing their designing, building and problem-solving skills, and includes opportunities to build their own bug hotels, bird houses, woodland creature gardens and shadow pavilions.
Have a look on our insta shots and the 6 years old presentation of his Mondrian style playground plus talks about his friend’s Jackson Pollock inspired creation! London with kids in February is fabulous again, let us know if we missed any of your favourite outings!
