The Världskulturmuseet in Gothenburg with Kids

Happy Museum Monday! We’re back with another great museum for kids to share with you – The Världskulturmuseet (or World Culture Museum) in Gothenburg. We visited this during an Easter holiday a couple of years ago, and I think it’s possibly one of our favourite museum experiences ever with kids. In fact, we loved it […] Read more…

The Jewish Museum Berlin with Kids

Hey, February! How did we get here so quickly already? To mark the new month, I’ve decided to introduce a new feature to the blog. As you may or may not know, I’m very passionate about taking kids to museums, so I’m going to introduce a regular ‘Museum Monday’ slot, where I will be both […] Read more…

Pumpkin Picking at Kilduff Farm

Is it even Autumn if you haven’t visited a pumpkin patch? Actually, we’d only ever been pumpkin picking once before, and that was last year when we had actually gone apple picking only to discover the farm in question also offered pumpkins. We enjoyed it so much, we jumped at the chance when we were […] Read more…

Brochan: For the Love of Porridge

It’s World Porridge Day today, so what better excuse to introduce you to one of our favourite eateries in Edinburgh. Brochan is a tiny café in Marchmont, one of the neighbourhoods on Edinburgh’s Southside, and what it lacks in size it makes up for in tasty food and amazing flavours. Brochan’s main fare is porridge, […] Read more…

Edinburgh Castle with Kids

I’ve been asked quite a few times recently for recommendations of things to do in Edinburgh, from people planning a holiday there this year, which reminded me I’ve been meaning to tell you about our trip to Edinburgh Castle last November! A trip to Edinburgh Castle doesn’t come cheap, but I’d still say it’s a […] Read more…

{Edinburgh} Pick Your Own at Craigie’s Farm

Every year, I have been looking on with a little envy at the pictures of apple picking and pumpkin patch outings filling up my social media streams. Last year, we visited the US during October and got within reach of an all-American pumpkin patch, but ultimately sadly couldn’t make it there. So when I heard […] Read more…

{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 me so long to take my boys there, since moving back here. But yesterday was a public holiday […] Read more…

{Edinburgh} Picnics & Pooh Sticks at the Hermitage

We’ve been really lucky with the weather in Edinburgh this summer. Sure, we’ve had a few rainy days since arriving back here, but we’ve also had plenty of sunshine. So last week, we made the most of the good weather and headed out on a long walk to the Hermitage of Braid, on the South […] 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…
