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.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 …

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 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 …

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 …

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 …

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 …

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 …
