Restaurant Prinsenkelder in Delft

When friends and family come to visit, we love taking them to a local restaurant. While it’s funny to watch guests translate a Dutch menu with their iPhones, it’s also nice to show off the fantastic cuisine we have found here. When two visitors from New England came to town, we chose the Prinsenkelder for a […]

Netherlands Bird Park & Playground

The Vogelpark Avifauna park in Alphen aan de Rijn seemed like a perfect last-minute Sunday outing when the weather unexpectedly cleared up.  Any expectations we had were exceeded! We were honestly not very prepared for the trip. I had the park on my list of “places to take the kids” and we knew that using […]

Bergen, Norway with Kids

Bergen is topping the list as one of the favorite places we have had a chance to visit since moving abroad. This city is completely approachable and packed with charm. Perhaps this is why Disney chose it as a model for Frozen’s Arendelle. We were glad that the bulk of our Norway days were spent here […]

Oslo, Norway with Kids

We arrived Oslo via the Bergen Railway into Oslo’s Central Station, which is quite large. The iPhone’s GPS was quite confused in the station, so we went out the exit toward the city but the phone quickly knew where we were. We decided to make the mile walk down Karl Johans Gate to our hotel. […]

Berlin in Lovely Weather, with Kids

Berlin is an amazing city to visit and should top your European list. I’m typically not a city person. Although European cities are packed full of museums and culture, I prefer exploring the countryside and small towns. Berlin though, is so packed with history and yet completely new as it rebuilds from its Soviet era […]

Copenhagen with Kids

Copenhagen is an approachable city that offers tons of tun and nearby day trips. It is not as family friendly as some of the other parts of Denmark, but is worth a visit. We found a perfectly quirky Airbnb to rent in the heart of Copenhagen. The location was to die for, the place perfectly […]

Dutch Camping in Limburg

Father’s Day weekend a friend suggested we do some Dutch camping. She knew of a company, Holland Tent, that sets up everything before you get there. With a last minute booking we asked Holland Tent where they had tents available. The company’s last two tents were at Wega Campground in Weert, a small town in […]

Easy Travel Photo Books

I’ve been really struggling with how to organize and keep all the memories from our travels. My boys are young and I really want them to have something they can look back on to remember this magical time in our lives. Photo books are one of the most picked books off the shelf by both […]

Egeskov Castle in Denmark

Egeskov Castle was the perfect stopping point between Copenhagen and Legoland on a travel day. It takes about two hours to reach Egeskov Castle from Copenhagen by car. The castle has a little something for everyone and we easily spent the day there. Egeskov Castle was completed in 1554 and like most castles was designed for […]

A Day in Ribe & Romo, Denmark

Although we loved our visit to Copenhagen we tend to enjoy small towns a bit more. On our last day in Denmark the only goal was to get from Billund, where Legoland is located, to our hotel in Husum, Germany just over the border. We opted for a day of driving through the Denmark countryside […]
