Travelling on the ICE with Kids

In my travel guide to Wuppertal from the other week, I mentioned that we always took the ICE high speed train from Berlin to Wuppertal, so I thought I would tell you a bit more about travelling with the ICE in Germany. ICE is short for Intercity-Express, and is a system of high-speed trains running […] Read more…

Wuppertal with Kids

This has been a bit of a crazy week, with a sick kiddo amongst other things, so my usual blogging schedule is in a bit of disarray. So, instead of a Friday Five round up, I’ve got a very special travel guide for you today. If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen […] Read more…

Travel with Kids – 48 hours in Copenhagen

This year, we’ve been trying to make Advent an extra special time. So on the first Advent weekend, we baked cookies and mulled some cider. On the second Advent weekend, we went on a steam train ride. And this past weekend – the third of Advent – we spent the weekend in Copenhagen! It’s a great city to […] Read more…

Gothenburg With Kids – Our Top Tips!

A while ago, we considered moving to Scandinavia. We looked at different locations, including Gothenburg. In the end, our plans came to nothing – but the desire to visit Gothenburg remained. I’d never visited any major cities in Sweden, and for some reason Gothenburg was always a bigger draw for me than Stockholm. So when […] Read more…

Travel: Tivoli Gardens

Travel: Wonderful Copenhagen

9 January 2014 As you may know, we spent our Christmas holidays in Copenhagen. Save for a couple of hours on route to Japan several years ago, I had never visited Copenhagen before. It is a truly stunning city, very easy to fall in love with. You can see why they call it ‘Wonderful Copenhagen’. […] Read more…

Travel: The Beautiful Trossachs – Aberfoyle

4th June 2013 Only four miles down the road from our B&B in Kinlochard was the sleepy little town of Aberfoyle. Since we’d arrived for the wedding with almost a day to spare, we drove over to Aberfoyle to explore a little. Ice creams all round at The Wee Tablet Shop! And who could ignore […] Read more…

Travel: Beautiful Trossachs – Kinlochard

3rd June 2013 While we were in the Trossachs for the wedding, we stayed in a B&B in Kinlochard for two nights. It was our first time in this beautiful part of the country (at least since I can remember, my parents probably took me here as a child). We are so glad we chose […] Read more…

Impressions from Armenia

26 October 2012 As you know, I’ve just been away at an international museum conference in Armenia. I have to admit I knew next to nothing about Armenia before my trip, but thanks to the ICOM-CECA conference I had the chance to get to know a beautiful country I probably would otherwise never have visited. The […] Read more…

Mini Break in Potsdam

13 August 2012 My parents are currently visiting, and at the weekend they gave us one of the bestest of presents – they looked after the boy over night while the husband and I went on a two day mini break! Our first time we’ve been away alone over night in almost two years. We […] Read more…
