Our Christmas holiday in Scotland would not be complete without a stupendous meal to go along with all of the great memories we’ve had while in Edinburgh. We were fortunate to eat at Kyloe Restaurant & Grill, and let me tell you it was definitely memorable.
When traveling within Europe, we do our best to travel with carry on luggage only. This allows us to use some of the low-cost flights we find using Skyscanner, which typically charge extra for any checked bags. Most airlines allow you one carry on item and one personal item. Of course those sizes can vary slightly depending on the airline. After our 1 year of nomadic travel and homeschool, we are pretty much experts at packing lightly.
We’re going to do something fun in this post. Something fun, and something easy. We get so many comments from readers who like reading our blog, and they often ask how to start a blog of their own. In the past, we have kept our tips and tricks to email, as we wanted to stay true to our Family Travel Blog vibe. Though as with anything, things begin to change. We are answering this question far more often and people look to us as the experts. So, the time has come to share what we know with you and make sure it is easy to understand.

This product review will cover the Nibbles (for the iPad), and Goldie (for the iPhone). Continue reading

As you know that is a loaded question, as we like to use the tools available to us. Sometimes one tool is better in a certain location than others. I am sure you have used review sites to help you plan and decide on where you will go or what you will do. We all know how reviews and opinions of others to help you plan. We do too! But now there is a new travel planning tool in town and it is called Yonderbound!
We arrived in Kuala Lumpur, and it’s a big city. We explored our area a bit on foot, but there’s no better way to get a good feel for the city than by using the Hop-On Hop-Off city bus. Being able to get on and off the bus for 24 or 48 hours is very convenient. Yes, many locations are easy access by taxi or car, but the bus provides you with commentary as well, so you learn as you go.
