We ventured to Mar Menor, Spain for the weekend, so we could experience the healing powers of a natural mud bath! Lo Pagan is the place to go and is located in the region of Murcia Spain. It is about 3 1/2 hours from Almuñécar, 4 hours Northeast of Costa del Sol, 2 1/2 hours South of Valencia and 4 hours Southeast of Madrid. Continue reading →
We’re on our way home, and this means that our Epic 8-week Summer Road Trip is coming to a close. We’ve chosen to end the trip on a good, no great note, and we’ll be doing a Where It’s Made type of post. Our journey takes us to Naturalmente Mediterraneo and Jennifer explains the process of making artisan soaps and other skincare products.
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.
The Fantasticable was a kid favorite! Flying high in the French Alps, above the hamlet of Plaine-Dranse, to Châtel. The kids soared at almost 100 km/h (60 mph) and 240 meters above ground (790 feet). Are we nuts for letting our kids do this?
Singapore is a wonderful place to visit, as it is so clean and organized. That does however come at a price, so be a bit prepared for a little sticker shock, as Singapore is expensive. That doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the country for a little bit. We had a wonderful 48 hours in Singapore with kids. We want to share what we have learned with you so you can get ideas of things to do in Singapore with kids and a couple of options on where to stay.
We are a family of four from North Carolina and have taken countless road trips and airplane trips since the kids were born. Our kids are now 8 and 10 years old and love travel games. Over the years we have figured out how to make Family Road Trips “smooth sailing” and keep the entire family laughing too. Don’t tell the kids, but they are also being educated at the same time with these car games. If they knew this, they wouldn’t play the “games”. We can modify all of these games to suit our international travel as well.
