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

In Travelby 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, Travelby 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 …

We travel to Barcelona every year or two because I love there, it’s one of my favourite places in Europe. I lived in Spain for a few years, it feels like home 🙂 It’s always good fun, very child-friendly and a lot warmer in March than in London. This time we wanted to be near the beach but still close …

In Reviews, Travelby eva.katona@yahoo.com2 Comments

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, Travelby 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, …

Basque country in early September

In Reviews, Travelby eva.katona@yahoo.comLeave a Comment

Since we still can – because we’re not restricted by the unfairly short summer school holiday just yet – we have a holiday in every September. We decided to visit the Basque country this time as British Airways flies to Biarritz. We were looking for mainly self catering options like a holiday house rental, because Bobcat was only 15 months old …

You know the kind of man that has this thing for trains? And for funiculars and trams? I’m married to one. So when the tickets went on sale for the first Eurostar ride from London to Marseille, he naturally booked our premium seats. And one for Grandma, so Bobcat spent nearly 2/3 of the 7-hours-long travel time on her lap. …

Montreux. Pretty scenery, bad food and marmots. Oh, and Freddy Mercury.

One of our early holiday with the little one took us to Montreux. Husband booked the flight tickets back at the January BA sale, never been there, sounds jazzy. (Sorry…) what could possibly go wrong? It’s Switzerland. Frenchy stuff with german efficiency. Well, the reality shows the other way around. Stayed at the Golf Hotel Rene Capt, a bit like …
