Exploring Brussels with Kids

Brussels is an easy drive from our house, so it’s a wonder it has taken us so long for a proper visit. We opted to drive down, which is actually a less expensive option than taking the train. Since we were in the car we stopped at Cook & Book for lunch before checking into the […]

Cook & Book, Brussels

I have a thing for cool bookstores. When I found Cook & Book during a Belgium Pinterest hunt, I knew I had to add it to our itinerary for our next Brussels visit. Just outside of Brussels this adorable bookstore takes up most of a shopping plaza. There is ample street parking (metered). It was […]

A Day in Rovaniemi, Finland

One of the main reasons we wanted to book our own trip to Rovaniemi, as opposed to using a pre-packaged deal, was to have the freedom to explore the town of Rovaniemi. The pre-packaged tours tend to have everyone from their tour in one hotel or resort area and then move everyone to activities as […]
