Thread Name: BS: Visiting London on a Budget
Subject: RE: BS: Visiting London on a Budget
I'm an American and I have been to Europe or the British Isles 7 times. So I know something of what it's like.
I really, really suggest that you start back-pedaling. Tell your son that you had no idea how expensive London was when you made that promise. Tell him you need to do something else.
Then take him on a few-day trip to a glamorous city in America or Canada. You will have much more fun, be much less stressed and spend less money than on a trip to London.
After that, he will be more used to strange places and strange people. You will know how good a traveller he is. Just one aspect of being a good traveller - can he sleep on airplanes or not?
A few years down the line, you can take that trip to London and it have more promise of being a success.
