72 Hours in Amsterdam with Kids

Amsterdam, with its famous canals and gable-roofed buildings, is on of Europe’s most picturesque cities.

Flat, small and easy to navigate on foot, Amsterdam is home to numerous parks, attractions and boasts more museums per capita than any other European capital. All of these attributes make it a great destination for a few-night stay with kids.


Photo Friday: Lake Geneva, Switzerland

I haven’t spent much time in Switzerland but that is about to change. This will be the first of many posts on this spectacular country. The little village of Villette near the city of Lausanne on Lake Léman (otherwise known as Lake Geneva) is about to become my new home for the next few years!

The mountains views here are breathtaking—and ever changing. It seemed like every weather and light change brought entirely new perspective.


Favorite Kid-Friendly Activities in Prague

Prague makes adults and children feel like they are in a fairy tale. It is a magical city full of cobblestone streets, little cottages and a castle. Prague is small and walkable with a convenient metro and tram system so there is no need to rent a car if you plan to spend most of your time within the city.

Be forewarned: the magical cobblestone streets are tough on little feet (and big ones too) – wear comfortable shoes.
