Skiing from Warth to St Anton in pictures

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…

#Take12Trips in 2017: Family Travel Review

Back in January I decided to take part in the #Take12Trips in 2017 challenge. At that time we were on an extended stay in western Austria for the ski season. So I was planning several day trips in the area. Then later in the year I was thinking of perhaps Spain or Romania. Plus a long haul trip somewhere like South Korea or Thailand. How did we get on…

Maritime Museum in Bilbao with a Toddler

The Maritime Museum in Bilbao, or the Museo Marítimo Ría de Bilbao, provides some fun for a toddler for an hour or two. It is located on the river on the site of a former shipyard, not far from the Guggenheim Bilbao. We chose the maritime museum over the art gallery as we thought the latter may be a bit sedate for an active toddler.
