Spain with Kids, Visiting Sevilla

When my family of four pulled into Sevilla, our 2 week-plus trip through Spain was winding down, and so were we. We had ideas of how we’d spend our couple of days there, but nothing set in stone.We were tired, and looking forward to a couple of days to just lay low.

Sevilla is the perfect place to slow down. It’s not a city loaded with must-see landmarks …

Just Add Water

Traveling with kids gets better with experience. The more you do it, the easier it gets. You develop a system, and refine it with every adventure.

When I plan a trip, I have a very distinct routine. It starts with an empty notebook, a guidebook and a few hours on the Internet. Once armed with the basics, I start trying to lay out a rough day to day itinerary. It serves as a guideline for my family. If something doesn’t happen, it’s not the end of the world. Maybe we’ll do it tomorrow.
