We were on holiday in the States recently and stayed in San Jose for a few weeks, visiting friends. As we tried to combine quality indoor time (hiding from the heat) and lots of outdoor fun, we came across the Children’s Discovery Museum in San Jose. If you’re ever around and have a small child to entertain, don’t hesitate to …

In Reviews, Travel by eva.katona@yahoo.com47 Comments

We’ve been planning the visit to Legoland for ages, but we thought that Bobcat might be just too young being under three. Both mummy and daddy are hardcore Lego fans (even granddad!) so we also really looked forward to the day since we we booked the tickets. Upon arrival, at 10 am on a Saturday morning, term time, we were …

In Reviews, Travel by eva.katona@yahoo.com14 Comments

We have visited the Watercress Line a couple of times already as both daddy and son are big train enthusiasts. However, we never attended a Meet Thomas Day. For those whose never been there, the Watercress Line is located in Alresford, Hampshire. It’s a heritage railway which was saved by enthusiastic volunteers in 1973, and Watercress Line was re-open as a tourist attraction …

Family Dayout Series: Drusillas Park East Sussex Review

In Reviews, Travel by eva.katona@yahoo.comLeave a Comment

Drusillas Park is located in East Sussex, short drive from the lovely coast. Our first time visit left me with ambivalent feelings. Some parts of it are really nice, but others are just run-down or just random. It has no apparent concept either: bit of a mix of everything, but not too original or exciting. The park tries really hard though: …

The National Motor Museum Beaulieu  was a big hit for our vehicle-fan toddler. So was for daddy and mummy too. Here’s why. The toddler’s favourites: Monorail – train on elevated tracks!

Review: Aquatopia Antwerp – Doesn’t Worth The Money

In Reviews, Travel by eva.katona@yahoo.comLeave a Comment

A few weeks ago we visited my cousin who lives near Antwerp and we wanted to spend a couple of hours in Antwerp: visit some children-friendly place and have a nice lunch near the train station. We found both challenging. Our first idea was the zoo, but most of it was under reconstruction so we decided to visit Aquatopia which was just …

If you’re looking for a day out for a curious toddler and a husband with mild train obsession – this is the place to be near San Fransisco and Santa Cruz. We purchased our tickets online which is strongly recommended to avoid queueing. However, it will not save you the fight for seating, this bit was a little annoying with a …

Monterey Bay Aquarium – great fun for kids and grown-ups

In Reviews, Travel by eva.katona@yahoo.com1 Comment

I was a little bit sceptical about the day trip to the Monterey Bay Aquarium because aquariums normally just keep animals locked up like a zoo and train them to perform shows. We don’t like that. Well, the prejudice couldn’t be further from the truth. This one operates as a non-profit organisation and has a clear mission: conservation of the oceans, …
