Gilroy Gardens Review – More Than A Themepark

In Travelby eva.katona@yahoo.com8 Comments

I’m still nowhere near with writing up all about our 3 week holiday on the Central Coast in California. We did a lot and to my honest surprise: there is so much quality and educational entertainment for kids, even for the very little ones. During our visit, for a few days, the temperature went through the roof: right up to …

In Reviews, Travelby eva.katona@yahoo.com16 Comments

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 Life, Travelby 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, Travelby 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, Travelby 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 Travelby 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, Travelby eva.katona@yahoo.com5 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, Travelby 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: …

Hotel Review: Meon Valley Marriott Hotel And Country Club

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

We picked Meon Valley Marriott Hotel And Country Club for five nights in August as a mini-holiday near home. As we checked the reviews on Tripadvisor it was clear that many families chose the hotel for being “children friendly“. We thought, the rooms are big, there’s golf for daddy and beauty treatments for mummy, small children can use the swimming pool, so …

Family Day Out Review Series: National Motor Museum Beaulieu

In Reviews, Travelby 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 Beaulieu is a great place for everyone. 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, …
