Over 17 years ago Alan and I fell in love with Amsterdam. We were living in London at the time and Alan needed to come over for business a few times. Of course, I would often come with him and roam the city, while he was working and then we would explore together in the evenings. Those were the days prior to kids, so we ventured to all parts of the city and tried to experience as much as possible. Now here we are returning years later with our kids, ages 9 and 12. The city is just as we remembered. So, we thought we would share some things to do in Amsterdam with kids. Continue reading
This is the question many of you have asked and I bet many of you wanted to, but didn’t want to invade our privacy. So we are just going to share with you all of our 8 week European Road Trip Costs. Don’t worry, if you have a question for us, just ask! We are sharing our experiences, stories, budgets with all of you. This one gets a bit tricky, so pay close attention.
We traveled over 6000km in Spain & France and stayed in all types of accommodation. We covered it all from Luxury to Misery, ya know the “Get me out of here!” kind. Now it’s time to share it all with you, every place we stayed during our 8 week European road trip. Yes, we will include what we thought and the costs too. Keep on reading!
We’ve completed our house sit in Morzine France and had an amazing time. We thought it would be a week of rest and relaxation, but it was far more than that. We had big plans of spending a week or two to make it back home to Almuñécar, with stops in Montpellier, Girona and more. But that isn’t how our the final week of our European road trip turned out.
Continuing on with our 8 week summer road trip, Alan requested the Guggenheim-Bilbao be included in our travels. See, I do let the family contribute! While we didn’t have plans to stay directly in Bilbao, I knew we would be passing on our travel day from Santander to La Rioja. It was going to be a short 2 hour drive and Bilbao would be just about half way. So let the travel day begin!
We did it again! It was time to explore another city in Spain, while on our 8 week European road trip. This time we were riding the double-decker Santander Bus. Yes, another Hop On Hop Off bus tour, but this time we created a twist.
When anyone mentions Valencia the first vision which comes to my mind is always the City of Arts and Sciences. We think this is a great way for the family to spend the day and if you are on a budget there are some free things to do as well!
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!
Yep as of last Saturday, we hit the road and started our 8 week Road Trip through Spain and Southern France! If you follow us on social media you can see what we are up to each and every day. If you don’t then you just need to wait a little for us to have time to write about our experiences. Keep on reading if you want to have an idea of what we have been doing thus far.
