My 7 Links is a great idea dreamed up by our friends at Tripbase aimed at getting great posts the second read they deserve. Bloggers from all around the globe are linking back to oldies but goodies from their past. Amie dusted off some great reads a few weeks ago. Now it’s my turn. Thanks to Corinne McDermott from Have Baby Will Travel for inviting me to throw my pieces into the mix.

Families & Madrid … A Perfect Mix: This was the very first post I did after leaving behind my career as a television news producer. I was pretty much clueless, and just went with my instincts when I put the blog post together. Years later, I still love reading it!

Traveling China With Kids: Preparing Young Travelers for Long-Distance Vacations: Every time I look at this post I’m reminded of how stunning China is and what an incredible trip my family had. It was not a relaxing vacation. We were constantly on the move, learning every step along the way and exhausted by the end. Both my girls slept for the entire 13 hour flight home.
