15 Fun Things To Do In Vienna With Small Children

In Travel by eva.katona@yahoo.com10 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.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 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 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 …

#CheckYourChaps Male Cancer Awareness Month

In Life by eva.katona@yahoo.comLeave a Comment

In collaboration with male cancer charity Orchid, I’d like to help their #CheckYourChaps campaign to raise awareness. As a wife and a daughter, I believe women should provide encouragement and support to the men in their lives to check themselves for the signs of testicular cancer. The charity have just completed surveying the British public, revealing that on average only 32% …

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 …

Toddler-Proof Christmas Tree Ideas

In Life by eva.katona@yahoo.com1 Comment

Chances are the Christmas of 2014 was the last one when I got to use all my carefully selected and colour-harmonised Christmas tree ornaments for a long time. Bobcat was only 8 months old and was only crawling. When I had to leave the room, I just popped him into his playpen. Now, that he’s 20 months old, it’s a …

Basque country in early September

In Reviews, Travel by 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 …

Cauliflower Mac’n’Cheese – great way to get them to eat more veggies

In Foodie Me by eva.katona@yahoo.comLeave a Comment

This recipe is a great version of the much-loved, original Mac’n’Cheese, one of our favourite childhood meal. It’s creamy and crunchy at the same time: the whole family will love it. It also takes no time and very little effort to prepare it. The good thing about cauliflower is, that it’s packed with Vitamin C, K and B6, fiber, protein and …
