{Edinburgh} Exploring the Royal Botanic Garden

One of my favourite places in Edinburgh is the Royal Botanic Garden, or the ‘Botanics’ as it’s known colloquially. I have fond memories of Sunday afternoons spent there as a child. So it’s a wonder it’s taken my so long to take my boys there, since moving back here. But yesterday was a public holiday […] Read more…

{Edinburgh} Down On The Farm

Did you know that there is a farm, right in the middle of Edinburgh? After a rather wet week or so (not that I’m complaining, I’ll take Scottish summer rain over the sweltering Berlin summers any day), we finally had another dry day with sunshine and blue skies yesterday, so I took the boys for […] Read more…

{St Andrews} An Aquarium & some Meerkats

Last week, I took the boys to visit a very good friend of ours in Dundee for two nights. The weather was gorgeous when we arrived, and we hit the beach straight away, but the next day it was chucking it down with rain. As we’ve visited Dundee several times before and wanted to do […] Read more…

{Edinburgh} Life’s a Beach in Portobello

We finally have internet! I know it’s a bit of a first world problem, but when you write a blog, it’s good to be back online after an almost two week hiatus. If you follow me on Instagram, you will have seen that we have arrived safely in Edinburgh and are slowly settling in to […] Read more…

{Berlin} Our Top 3 Playgrounds in Schöneberg

One of the things Berlin has going for it for families, is the number of pretty cool, themed playgrounds we have throughout the city. Not just your average slide plus a swing and maybe a roundabout if you’re lucky. No. Pirate ships, dragon lairs, fairy tale forests – you name it, Berlin has it. We […] Read more…

{Berlin} Park am Gleisdreieck

Last week I shared our ‘Park & Playground Kit’ with you, after which many people asked if we had a good park near us. So I thought I’d take the opportunity to share our favourite park with you, which has everything you need for a day out and is a great destination to head to […] Read more…

{Berlin} Historic Steam Train Ride

Yesterday, we marked the Second of Advent with an historic steam train ride around wintery Berlin-Brandenburg. We’d taken The Boy on the same ride three years ago, and it was just as atmospheric as we’d remembered it. For Mr Fox, it was the first time. Both boys were super excited! When we arrived, they were […] Read more…

{Berlin} A Street Festival in the Rainbow Quarter

I’ve mentioned before, that when we moved house last summer, we knowingly moved in to the heart of Berlin’s ‘Rainbow Quarter’. If you look up our neighbourhood in a guide book, it wouldn’t strike you as being typically popular with families. It has been one of the centres of Berlin’s gay scene since the 1920s, and […] Read more…
