The Joys of Travelling With Children

Safer on the ferry?

Safer on the ferry?

Malta is proving to be a very child friendly place to be.

Children are welcomed into restaurants and are generally treated with warmth and humour.

Our Family Unit may challenge all of this.

In the last twenty-four hours, the Offspring has managed to:

  • Fall, fully dressed (in smart dress and jacket) into the hotel’s swimming pool.
  • Get bitten by a horse.
  • Fall flat on her face after slipping on a wet floor in McDonalds.

So, when she sat down at our lunch table and said “Guess what?”, we immediately started through a list of horrors:

Me:  You’ve been to the toilet, broken the tap, and the Ladies’ is now flooded?

Husband: You’ve been banned by the staff in the hotel’s reception, from taking any more boiled sweets from their open bowl for guests?

Me: You’ve broken the free drinks dispenser and the reception area is now awash with broken glass, ice and orange juice?

Offspring: No, can I have some ice cream, please?

Phew!
