Our flight back to Amsterdam on Sunday was at 3 pm. We had the whole morning to go somewhere, but the kids complained. They were tired, we came back quite late the night before, after we had dinner at a friend's house. So we decided not to go anywhere and let the children play by themselves.
All in all, it was a good trip. London was as buzy and crowded as before.... I am glad of the opportunity to revisit the place, it only reenforces the feeling that the place is not for me, not to stay and live there anyway. I do not mind going there for a holiday, but not to stay. I'm glad to be back here in Amstelveen, it's so quiet and peaceful. OK the weather is not so wonderful, but so is London. But here we have trees and canals everywhere, and the effect is so cooling.
When asked whether they enjoyed the holiday, the children said "No tiring, no rest at all", "The places are fun but the TVs boring" and "It's OK I guess".... I have a feeling that London has not impressed them that much. They just want to play, period.
