Driving on the motorway out of London to escape the hustle and bustle of our crazily intense city for a moment is always exciting. A short distance from London in the beautiful home county of Berkhamstead tucked in the little village of Great Missenden you will find the home of Roald Dahl. A slightly sleepy yet pretty place, and very much unspoilt and beautifully uncommercialised. Quite a still, motionless village apart from odd locals running errands and small flocks that come to visit this gorgeous little museum dedicated to one of the world's favourite children's authors, quite a refreshing comparison to our day to day faced paced life.
To re-live moments of my own childhood with my children is beautiful. Roald Dahl is sure to be dear to most people of our generation. An author who we cannot wait to share with our children and escape reality and be transported to the land of Road Dahl via our imaginations. A whole day to fully immerse ourselves and learn more about the background and personality of such an influential person in our childhood and now our children.
The day was complemented just perfectly with another nostalgic element of our childhood, Mr Kipling cakes, which we munched on throughout our trip.
