Innsbruck Alpenzoo With A Toddler

Innsbruck Alpenzoo is a fun little zoo for toddlers. If a little hilly. But the hilltop location means that there are great views of Innsbruck. There is a range of Alpine animals, from bears to snakes, via otters and lynxes. This and the setting makes for a different experience from many other small zoos. There is also a wide selection of birds but they were not of much interest to Daisy. She liked looking at the fish and frogs in the aquarium and the snakes. Anything where you could lift her up to the glass for a closer look.

Bludenz-läuft with a baby (a running festival in Austria)

We like to get out-and-about walking and running with our baby. I had failed to start the Bludenz half marathon two years ago (pregnant). And the 6km city walk last year (running spectacularly late). This year I was determined to make the start line. Daddy wanted to run in the half marathon. So I went for the 6km city walk again. And I had a great experience taking part in the Bludenz-läuft with a baby.

Austria Ski Season with a Baby: St Anton Cafe Review, Sonnegg

Taking a Baby to the NFL Games in London

Daddy is a big NFL (American Football) fan, so having a baby was not going to prevent him going to the games in London. I would not even consider taking a baby to most sporting events, but NFL games are pretty family-friendly. In 2016, three games were held in London, two at Wembley Stadium and one at Twickenham Stadium. The games are usually held in September and October. Here are my tips for taking a baby to the NFL games in London.

A Day in the Life of a Ski Season with Baby

You might be under the impression that ski resort seasonnaires are all eighteen year old gap year students. And, to be fair, there are quite a few of those.

Buggy Friendly Winter Walk in Lech am Arlberg, Austria

Lech am Arlberg is St Anton’s posher cousin famed for featuring in the film Bridget Jones’s Diary. It is something of a playground for the rich, so keep an eye out for famous faces! The ski areas were linked together for the first time in 2016/17 by the new Flexenbahn gondola. With my toddler in tow I went to investigate a buggy friendly winter walk in Lech.

#Take12Trips: A Toddler’s Visit To inatura in Dornbirn, Austria

We had a fantastic day out at inatura in Dornbirn. This is an interactive museum focusing on nature, humans and technology. It is a truly interactive museum, where touching, trying, playing and experiencing is encouraged. I visited with a sixteen month old, but I think there would be something here for everyone. We went on this day trip as part of our #Take12Trips challenge. It is apparently considered one of Europe’s most modern natural history museums, but I had never heard of it before.
