• Italy's feast for the senses

    My poor senses! Upon arrival into the coastal town of Levanto by train from Florence, they were a little overwhelmed by it all. The coffee, the wine, the seafood, and  the Mediterranean. What a heady cocktail they did make! Not to mention the view.

  • 11 reasons we are so glad to travel ‘young’

    We get a lot of different reactions when we tell people that we are ‘permanently nomadic’. Most are surprised that we have chosen to do this while we are young (a compliment to us) and especially with children. Many people wait until they are retired to travel and others think travelling with children is too much work. But I say, “Why wait?”

  • We send the Royals on holiday

    On Saturday 2 June this year, the Queen will celebrate 60 years on the throne. Celebrations for the Diamond Jubilee are happening right across the UK, culminating in a special event this weekend.

    So when all the ceremonies, parties, soirees, processions and concerts wind up, we figure a few members of the Royal Family could do with a holiday.

    See where we think they should go to shake off the shackles of royal duty and let their hair down (well, those of them who still have hair...ahem, William).

  • Places in Costa Rica for kids under 5

    Going on vacation to Costa Rica with children under five years old doesn’t mean that you’ll be sequestered to only ‘kids stuff’. We have lived in Costa Rica for over one and a half years with our children (ages 3 and 1) and feel like we are the experts on places to go in Costa Rica with children under 5 that are also interesting for adults.
