City Guide: Sydney with kids

Whenever we take a city trip with the kids we have a different schedule than when we’re traveling without them. Normally we get up at 8, have breakfast and then explore the city and don’t get back to our hotel or Airbnb until late in the evening. Not an ideal schedule for a kid. So what do we do when we explore a city as a family? I will tell you about our city trip to Sydney when our son was 12 and still an only child.

Sydney has so much to offer for young and old that everyone in the family will have a great time in Australia’s most visited city. That’s a promise!

My favorite cities in Italy

I’ve been to Italy many times already. I love the people and the landscapes are so diverse that it seems like your driving into another country every other hour. And the food, oh mamma mia, the food is absolutely amazing. I have to say that I haven’t eaten that good in any other country, including my own. The cities are actually open air museums. Turn a corner, it doesn’t matter which one, and you’ll be mesmerized by what you see. Every time you go back to Italy you’ll get enchanted all over again. So here it is, a post about my favorite cities in Italy. One of my favorite European countries.

Things to do in beautiful Dalarna

Everybody knows Sweden. Part of Scandinavia. The land of the Vikings. All over the world people shop at IKEA and eat their meatballs and gravad lax. So it’s surprising to me that not more people visit this beautiful and diverse country. Sure, it’s not the cheapest destination, but that can’t be the reason, can it? Iceland is in the same price range as Sweden and is overrun by tourists year by year. Sweden deserves more visitors, so I hope this blog will lure you into visiting the Dalarna region.

Respecting animals during our travels

In my last blog I wrote about regrets I had regarding activities involving animals during the roadtrip my son and I took through Thailand. And I really want to tell you about respecting not only the people that live in the countries that you’re visiting, but also the animals that live there.

Roadtripping through Thailand solo with kids

A lot of people with kids want to go on a roadtrip outside of their country or continent but aren’t sure if it’s a good idea. Will there be internet (preferably wifi), will the kids like the food, what’s the quality of medical care, is it safe enough for a family trip? They have loads of questions. But the bottom line is: if you want to do it and know your kids good enough to know that they can handle it (kids with certain special needs might need some extra attention or guidance during trips), then go for it! That also applies to single parents. You won’t regret it. Believe me.
