I have three blogs posts to write, some trial financial software to test out, and some social media to schedule today. Instead what have I been doing for the past hour? I’ve been playing with tools to investigate future vacations. I started with just browsing various flights, then ended up checking out Scandinavian cruises. So instead of doing all of my work, I decided to write this post and get your thoughts.
Dreaming of something different? Perhaps a family gap year in Spain is what you need? Does this sound like you?
There you are living a wonderful life with both parents working and the kids are in school. Your afternoons and evenings are spent running around from activity to event and driving from one location to another. Sometimes you need to have a quick meal out, as there just isn’t enough time to cook a meal at home. Once you arrive home, it is time to do a bit of cleaning, have the kids finish their homework, and have a little bit of time together as a family. Time to go to bed and start it all again tomorrow.
First off, I don’t mean to sound negative. And I don’t want to come off as a snobby tourist, but there’s a few things that happened in Paris that bothered me. Now these common Paris scams happen in every popular tourist place, but it still bugs me that there are people doing this kind of stuff, and are not actively getting arrested (or their butt’s kicked!).
Paris with teenagers is an entirely different experience and I have to say quite enjoyable. This was our second Christmas in Paris with Grandma Linda, but this time with teens. We experienced Paris Christmas markets, dazzling lights, museums, food, shops, sights, scooters, Christmas jammies, independence, games & more!
High up in the Himalayas are two amazing places in the highest regions in the world. Sharing a border that crosses directly over the summit of Mount Everest, Tibet and Nepal are neighbors in more than one sense of the word. Not only do they share Mount Everest, by they also share many other high Himalayan mountains, since their border follows the line of the Himalayas from north to south. Therefore, more and more tourists choose the Nepal Tibet Tour and experience the subtle differences between them.
It looks like Christmas 2018 is taking us back to one of our most magical Christmas trips. With dazzling lights in every direction, stunning scenery, a great city vibe, Christmas Markets, crepes, hot chocolate and baguettes too!
Each Autumn our consulting and blogging takes a little siesta, so Alan and I take full advantage of this time to work on projects and improve our Spanish. This time we tried experiential learning Spanish mixed with some traditional classroom time. Yep, we are taking the slow road to fluency, but at least we are still on that road! To top it all off, we know we are better than we were last year!
As we are a traveling family living in Spain, space is of great importance to us. We try very hard not to collect too many material “things” as we want to keep our belongings to a minimum. We have decided to share a Creative Gifts Guide. These are great gift ideas for the person who has everything and we even provide you fun and creative ways to give a gift!
