I was thinking about some of the places that Edmund and Lucy have loved the best over the time we’ve been on the road. It’s often not the same places as the rest of us. Peter and Susan, like their parents, tend to prefer the places with a good story attached. It there is an interesting history, or story, to the place then we are all sure to love it. But Edmund and Lucy? Well, Edmund had just celebrated his first birthday and Lucy was a grand four years old when we left our house. Now, at three and six respectively, they can’t remember anything but the nomadic life. They definitely prefer the experiences and the tactile rather than the story of the places we visit.
The theme seems to be anything with animals, or where they get to swim, ride or play in the sand or mud tends to be well received.
