London is an exciting city for all ages, with a long list of things to see and do for the entire family. Remember Alan and I lived there for nearly 3 years, when we were first married. We finally introduced the city to the kids in 2013 and we had so much fun touring around on the hop on hop off bus. We are big London fans and the kids keep asking to return.
When traveling to a big destination hot spot like Madrid, Spain, it’s best to have a plan to enjoy and maximize your time as there is so much to see. We have visited Madrid a few times and each visit has been just a couple of nights as we are passing through. You can easily get lost in a big city like Madrid, so try to plan things out via the public transportation. Here are a few things to do in Madrid with kids that we’ve enjoyed and would like to share with you.
This is a great travel guide for what to do in Brussels, where to eat and even recommended Brussels Hotels. It is our complete itinerary to visit Brussels with teens, with bonus things to do in Brussels for the Christmas and New Year season.
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 kids! 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.
Our itinerary for an Amsterdam Christmas with teens, was an interesting and fun experience for sure! As you know we have visited Amsterdam several times and it is certainly a top family destination, but this Christmas vacation was one of our favorite trips to Amsterdam. By the way, we also list many things to do in Amsterdam all year too.
If you only have 1 day in Vegas and want to get out of the main tourist area, then we have some great plans for you! We spent the majority of the day away from the strip or Fremont Street and wanted to see another side of Las Vegas. As an added bonus you will also see how we like to give gifts in a unique way. This was a full day planned to surprise Gma Bev for her 75th Birthday in Vegas!
No matter where we travel, we usually wind up doing some driving. Heidi and I have the whole driving thing down to a science. I’m usually the driver, and she’s the navigator. We rarely get lost, and when we do, it’s more of a “controlled lost“. And even when we get really lost, it’s not all that stressful. Unless it’s late. Or we’re all hungry. Or tired.
All I have to say is Visit Galicia Spain soon! We found some of the most beautiful places to experience and thought we should share them with you.
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!
