In honour of my recent return from holiday, here are a few of the kids’ best holiday-related questions…
If you don’t know Padstow, it’s on an estuary. When the tide goes out, the sea virtually disappears.
LG age 4 1/4: Are there any creatures in the sea? Whales? Sharks? (In Padstow)
LG age 4 1/4: Did we bring any ice creams with us? (On our picnic, to the beach)
LG age 4 1/4: Do you think we will meet Italy again?
LG age 4 1/4: How do planes have enough petrol if they want to go really fast?
B1 age 9: Daddy, can I get a hovercraft?
B1 age 9: Why is Gatwick airport bigger than our village?
B1 age 9: Is the Eden Project bigger than our village?
B1 age 10 1/4: How much does a plane ticket cost? (He doesn’t actually specify where to).
And one from the archive, from when he was nearly 2 and we were going to Disneyland Paris:
B1: Mick Mouse B1 no like.
