    I’d love to take Wilf to see the tunnels when he’s older. History used to be my favourite subject and I loved seeing places like this on trips (sounds a bit morbid I suppose!) x

    MY favourite sight in Jersey in the war tunnels. Well worth a trip, as are Guernsey, Herm and Sark. Safe travels. Jonny

    Love the activities you can do with kids. I have two babies and we enjoy every bit of traveling with them. Its important to find places for them to enjoy before we go for our best places to visit. I have been traveling with my two babies for the last 5 years and we have found so many kid friendly places in the USA, Canada and Europe. Great post and enjoyed reading it.
