We had a wonderful family Christmas in Edinburgh with Grandma Linda. It was an amazing week and we want to share what we feel are the top 15 things to do in Edinburgh with teens! Alright, you caught me, Anya is only 12, but she is just as teen as they come. Many of these activities are specific to the Christmas season, but there are also plenty which are available year-round.
We were scheduled to visit Morzine France this summer, as we had a house sit there for 1 week. We didn’t know much about the town, other than it being a ski resort in the French Alps. Since this was all part of our bigger 8 week road trip, we planned to have a very mellow week and just catch up on our writing, while staying at a house sit. Well, that isn’t exactly how it played out.
We had just 3 days to visit Valencia this time around and we packed it full of kid friendly fun! Valencia is full of charm, history, amazing architecture, and loads of activities. We certainly recommend you visit Valencia with kids! We will be sharing some of our favorite things to do in Valencia, as well as a few spots to eat, and places to stay. Keep on reading to check out our guide to fun in Valencia!
All I have to say is Visit Galicia soon! We found some of the most beautiful places to experience and thought we should share them with you.
We had just 48 hours to enjoy things to do in Salamanca with our kids. Now that our kids are a bit older, it seems we are finding more and more to enjoy. Our original plans for our 8 week European road trip were to spend at least a week in each place. Well, that went out the window when we knew we would be passing by locations we wanted to visit as well. Salamanca made it on our list for 2 days, and it was wonderful.
We were fortunate enough to kick off our epic 8 week summer road trip through Spain and France in Mallorca! Specifically Puerto Pollensa and Alcudia Mallorca, on the Northwest side of the island. It turns out this is the perfect place for a family to enjoy a summer holiday.
Who in the world would take an Ireland vacation in the winter?
We would! We had the opportunity to house and pet-sit in Dublin, over the holiday school break, so it was a no-brainer for us. We were going to be spending a full week in the suburbs of Dublin, but we decided to add on an extra week of fun vacation time in Southern Ireland. Yes the land of County Cork and County Kerry!
The other day Anya was requesting that we have a traditional Christmas at home. She continued by explaining she wanted it to be cold, with snow, a big decorated Christmas tree, and loads of our family. While I know I’ve had plenty of Christmas experiences with all of that, I realized she hadn’t. We have experienced Christmas vacations “away” from our home for most of her life and only a couple of times with snow.
