In Life, Travel by eva.katona@yahoo.com41 Comments

This summer we’re going on an overseas holiday, to California. Visiting friends, attending a wedding, driving a bit around. I know you probably think we’re surely crazy doing this with a 3 year old and a 14 months old. Well, we have some experience already: we did the same trip when my boy was 15 months old only, 2 years …

Legoland Windsor Visit – Day Out With A Toddler

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 …

Day Out With Thomas The Tank Engine At Mid Hants Railway – Watercress Line

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 …

15 Fun Things To Do In Vienna With Small Children

In Travel by eva.katona@yahoo.com9 Comments

I love Vienna. It has been voted to the most liveable city of the world for a reason. I’ve visited plenty of times, however, never with my children until a few weeks ago. Naturally, this time it was a completely different experience, just as we did expect it to be. Not so much of Aperol-Spritzing and Museum Quartier visiting. You …

Why Holiday Prices Are Higher During School Holidays?

In Life, Travel by eva.katona@yahoo.com4 Comments

I’m now trying to reflect on Kate’s Post I’ve read the other day from a hoteliers’ point of view. School holidays can be a nightmare to manage. In families, where both parents work, one of them HAS to take days off, unless you have other baby sitting solutions arranged. So now that you’ve got the kids for a whole week, …

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: …

Family Day Out Review Series: National Motor Museum Beaulieu

In Reviews, Travel by eva.katona@yahoo.com6 Comments

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! Also going through the building of the museum. Fun to watch it too, but a ride is mandatory. “WHEELS” – it’s a ride, sitting in a little pod whilst we …

Family Day Out At The Bockett’s Farm

In Reviews, Travel by eva.katona@yahoo.com4 Comments

So I’ve been hearing about this farm for ages from my mummy friends. It’s a short drive for a South Londoner, even with a toddler having a grumpy morning.  One lovely July day (when it was 30 C all of a sudden) we finally drove down there and visited it. We initially only intended to spend there no more than …

Family Ibiza Holiday With Children – That’s What We Call Luxury!

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

Ibiza is forever in my heart since I lived there for a few years. Forget about the notorious party island fame, you can take children and they will love there! The sandy beaches are very safe for children: they are clean, the water is shallow and warm, and most of them has at least one small beach bar (chiringuito) serving …

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 …
