one of the things on my 29 Things list was to take the train down to my sisters in Kent. i'd always put it off before thinking that it would be too expensive, and too difficult a journey to attempt on my own with 3 girls. however, when i looked at the booking site, train tickets were only going to cost me £30 return, the journey meant 4 changes, and i could walk between stations in london thus avoiding the underground. so i booked!
by the time it came to actually go i was wondering what i'd gotten myself into... the thought of the long train journey was a little daunting... and i wasn't sure i could do it.
but did it i did! the journey both ways passed without a hitch, we made all of our connections no problem, found our way across london without getting lost, and had a great weekend!
my girls loved playing with their cousins, Baya especially loved seeing the chickens in their garden. we had a lovely chilled weekend catching up, it'd been a whole year since we'd seen them, with baya just being a teeny baby at the time.
kent was great, beautiful and sunny, and i didn't want to come home! so i'm sure we'll be repeating the journey in the not too distant future. tho next time i think the rucksack needs to weigh a little less!
