New Way to Travel

With less than two weeks to go until we leave for London, it was time to book accommodation. In the past, we made a point of staying in modest hotels to save on money. This time, it's a little different. With DJ's peanut allergy, a hotel doesn't make a lot of sense. Eating out three times a day is simply to stressful to contemplate with a peanut-allergy tot. Instead, we've booked a service apartment - essentially an apartment set in a hotel-style setting that offers a full kitchen. That way, we'll be able to eat at least a couple of meals at home each day and have the amenities to make lunch for the road.

This will be our first overseas trip since DJ was born. We loved to travel pre-baby, and were determined to keep at it once we were parents but a cottage property, DJ's peanut allergy and an old, sweet dog have kept us Ontario-bound for the last couple of years.
We'll see how this trip goes, but it looks like booking a service apartment is pretty easy and they seem to be available (according to google!) in most cities. So hopefully, it won't be another 3 years before we go away again.
As for that old, sweet dog, she's now gone. Stella died peacefully on February 27th, with both my husband and I at her side. Here's a picture of our sweetie. She is dearly missed.
