Glamping at Camping Aichelberg, Germany

Glamping at Camping Aichelberg

‘I need a cup of tea’, demands Daddy. Very British. ‘No problem, there’s a kettle here’, says I. Pause… ‘Er, um, I don’t seem to be able to find a kettle. I’m sure there was one in the picture when I booked’. I trundle off to the reception to do a fabulous mime of a kettle whilst wittering on about ‘heißes Wasser’.

3 Things to do in Rotterdam with a Toddler on a Monday

3 things to do in Rotterdam with a Toddler

There are lots of great things to do with a toddler in Rotterdam. But not on a Monday. It seems that almost every museum is shut. Which is a shame because the Maritime Museum has a great play area. It is marketed at 4 to 8 year olds, but it was perfect for my toddler. The only drawback is the entry fee. Although the under 4s are free, at 12.50 euros per adult the entry fee is quite expensive compared to other maritime museums in London and Bilbao. Especially as you only tend to spend a couple of hours in such places. Anyway, here are the 3 things to do in Rotterdam with a toddler on a Monday that I found…

Skiing from Warth to St Anton

Warth is a small village in the Vorarlberg region of Austria. Warth is located at 1,500 metres directly within the Warth-Schröcken ski area and is linked to the wider Arlberg ski area. It is possible to ski all the way from Warth to St Anton am Arlberg (and vice versa). This is my guide to skiing from Warth to St Anton in pictures.

Musings on how to do a Ski Season as a Family

Musings on how to do a Ski Season as a FamilyWe are very fortunate to have organised our life in such a way that, for now, we can spend most of the winter months in the mountains. There must be other families out there who would love to spend the ski season indulging their passion. These are my musings on how to do a ski season as a family, based on our experiences so far…

Eureka! Science Museum in San Sebastian

Eureka! Science Museum in San SebastianWe had a great time at the Eureka! Science Museum in San Sebastian. So good in fact that I largely forgot to take any photos – apologies! There are lots of exhibits to keep all ages entertained, including our toddler. And in common with many European museums that I visit, it was practically deserted. I know it is a good thing that so many museums in London are freely accessible to all. But it doesn’t half make them busy by comparison.

The Aquarium in San Sebastian

The Aquarium in San Sebastian

It is almost inevitable that when on holiday with a toddler, you will end up in an aquarium. You have a couple of hours to kill, perhaps the weather isn’t great, there’s not much else that is toddler-friendly… So on our recent weekend break we of course visited the aquarium in San Sebastian.

Visiting Willows Activity Farm

Visiting Willows Activity FarmWe found visiting Willows Activity Farm a fun experience for a toddler. It is not the cheapest day out, but we found it very well organised (you get what you pay for and all that…). Willows Activity Farm is near St Albans in Hertfordshire, just off junction 22 of the M25. The entrance fee includes the kid’s farm, all shows, fun fair rides, a tractor ride, huge outdoor and indoor play areas, including the Peter Rabbit Adventure Playground. They hold different activities throughout the year, depending on the season. We visited in December, so there was of course a Christmas theme, including a visit to Santa.

Family Travel 2018: The Year Ahead

Family Travel 2018: The Year AheadWay back in January last year I posted about our plan to #take12trips in 2017. I found this a useful thing to do. It inspired me to get out and about, which meant we discovered new places. The record also gives a chance to reflect back and see what you did or did not achieve. It is amazing how quickly plans can change with a little one in your life! So now is the time to think about our family travel 2018: the year ahead…
