The Celestial Vault, The Hague

This was one of the stranger things we have gone to see while here in the Netherlands. It is only 20 min away from us though so we figured we needed to go check it out.   Artist James Turrell designed the Celestial Vault to showcase the sky just off the North Sea. It is essentially […]

Halloween in the Netherlands

We were pleasantly surprised to discover our neighborhood would be hosting an “American Style Halloween.” The Dutch, always ones to adopt the best of other cultures, have adopted Halloween and are starting to celebrate more and more. In Delft we live in one of the only neighborhoods that held a full-scale trick-or-treat on Halloween. The neighbors […]

I’ve been a bit more intentional about asking people to take family photos while we are traveling this month, knowing this deadline would be approaching. Without further ado, here is October’s […]

Rotterdam Zoo With Kids

This morning we headed out to check out the Rotterdam Zoo. Although we can drive there, and probably will in the future, today we biked to the Delft train station and took the #40 bus (the local bus organization is called: RET). The bus takes about 30min and drops you off less than a block […]

Kids Geography Gear

I am always searching for ways to keep the kids engaged in our travel and planning.  I try to surround them with maps, landmarks and books about the world. When a question about where we are going or a memory about somewhere we have been comes up the resources are close at hand. A Globe. […]
