Bucharest, Romania with Kids

I was sitting here trying to digest my Romania trip and almost decided not to write about it at all under the old adage “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.” The thing is Bucharest showered us with beauty. We were there at the height of the leaf change […]

TRAYblecloth // Review

This post contains affiliate links.  We spend quite a bit of time on planes. I’m far from being a germaphobe but there is something about the tray table that just irks me. Turns out, I’m not off base because a host of articles (like this one from CNN Travel) tout the dirtiest places on the […]

Dubrovnik with Kids

This post contains affiliate links.  Dubrovnik is unbelievably beautiful. It is like nothing else I’ve seen in our travels. Its history as a walled city is nearly unparalleled. It is no wonder that everyone is flocking there. Our early August visit was hot and crowded. I’d honestly put off writing this post because, although we […]

I put in our desired travel dates and booked the […]

Vienna, Austria with Kids

Vienna is an amazing European city packed with things to do. We barely scratched the surface with our visit, but enjoyed the nice weather as best we could. It’s on our “to re-visit” list because there was so much more to see and do!   Our flight arrived in the late afternoon into Vienna. Instead […]

Weekend in Prague with Kids

Our trip to Prague got off to an interesting start. The normally dependable NS Intercity Direct from Rotterdam Central to Schiphol was more than 10 minutes delayed. We had plenty of time but we were all worried it was an ominous start to our trip. We flew out of Terminal M, a new terminal at Schiphol for […]

Lisbon, Portugal with Kids

We ended our Portugal trip in Lisbon. Lately we’ve been ending trips in a larger city. We love that we get to dump the rental car and enjoy the city car-free for a few days. After great weather for most of the trip, we had terrible rain in Lisbon. Even with bad weather we were […]
