Paint Your Own Delft Blue Pottery

Hands down one of the best, and most underutilized experiences in Delft is to paint your own piece of Delft Blue Pottery at De Delftse Pauw. There are two shops in Delft where you can go see how Delft Blue is made. De Delftse Pauw is the smaller family-owned operation. (Read about our visit here.) […]

KGB Museum – Tallinn, Estonia

Tallinn’s impressive collection of museums and fortifications might make your head spin. There’s not nearly enough time on a weekend trip to Tallinn to see it all. You’ve got to prioritize the types of activities that interest you. The KGB Museum should be near the top of your list in Tallinn. It’s unassuming. It’s just a […]

Helsinki – Tallinn Ferry with Kids

We view all forms of transportation as part of the fun of travel, particularly with kids. If we can get somewhere on a boat, we jump at the chance. The ferry from Helsinki to Tallinn (or vice-versa) is an easy way to combine these two cities into one trip. We boarded our ferry in Tallinn. […]

Tallinn, Estonia with Kids in Winter – a Blast

Tallinn, Estonia completely exceeded our expectations. This city oozes charm. Despite the cold we enjoyed every moment of our three-day visit. Tallinn is an easy 2.5 hour flight from Amsterdam.
