Typically our limit for close and fast paced travel is about 6 weeks. This is the threshold when we notice we are all a bit more snippy with each other and are just flat-out tired. After traveling non-stop for 5 weeks, we began our 6th week of travel on our longest drive yet. This time we were making our way from La Rioja Spain to Bordeaux France. Keep on reading to see how we did for 1 week in France.
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!
Oh how we love Valencia! Last time we visited we stayed in a hotel, but this time we wanted a little more space and a kitchen. We chose Valencia Flats and were pleasantly surprised when we found out we had a terrace too!
It’s that time of year again, summer road trip time! This year our epic summer road trip in Europe will be for about 8 weeks and cover 5000 km (3000 miles). Remember our 6 week summer road trip in Europe, back in 2013? We covered Italy, Austria, Switzerland, France, Andorra and a bit of Spain. We had a blast and shared it all with you every step of the way. We are going to be pushing the family harmony boundaries with this one and see if we can do 8 weeks.
Fantastic apps and tools for smartphones and tablets exist, which can help your next road trip flow smoothly and be trouble-free. The following is a list of handy favorites that can transform your travel from a potential headache into an enjoyable adventure.
This is one for the ages! I can’t remember the last time we’ve had so much fun as a family. We partnered with Adventure Hub St. George, and they set us up with a UTV from Southern Utah Adventure Center. Now you may be asking, “What is a UTV?”. Is it an Ultra Terrific Vehicle? No. Is it a Unique Tall Vehicle? Nope. UTV really means, Utility Task Vehicle, but that doesn’t sound like much fun. The more common name is a side-by-side, and they are fun, Fun, FUN!
When planning our time in Penang, we knew we wanted a “normal life” feel, for a couple of weeks. We rented a 3 bedroom condo in Batu Ferringhi area and also decided we wanted to rent a car. That would give us a little break from hotel and public transportation life and help us recharge our batteries. We were thankful we had the opportunity to work with Europcar Malaysia for our car. It is a company we’ve often used in Europe, so we were excited they were also in Malaysia.
Another month has passed for us in Chiang Mai and it is time to share the numbers with you!
