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 […]

A passing stranger snapped this photo in front of Berlin’s Victory Statue for us. On our May trip to Bergen, Norway Jeff insisted we grab a family photo at […]
