Travelling with Kids: Selecting a Destination
We want to take the boys to Europe this fall. I haven't decided on a destination.
Maybe you can help us out? We would love a referral!
We've crisscrossed Europe and visited many tourist destinations - but, there are still a lot of things to see and do! I have never been to London, Edinburgh, Dubrovnik, Copenhagen, Berlin, Prague, Granada, Lisbon, Greece...
Everywhere we go we have a great experience...so in a way, I am no longer drawn by the city, or its attractions. I know that we will love it! Our number one concern is accommodation. We want a nice place to stay. Tell us about a nice vacation rental, and we will plan our trip around it! For example, if we knew of a beautiful executive rental in Lyon*, then Lyon it would be!
Where are you going on your next European vacation? What sites do you use to find a rental property? Have you ever stayed somewhere completely amazing?
*a friend of a friend has a place there, but it is being rented
ps. we spent a lot of time in the apartment when we were in Paris for two weeks. Our son went to bed early, and didn't always nap in his stroller. Nap time became an opportunity for my husband and I to split up...One of us stayed home with my son, while the other wandered around shopping, took a photography class etc...My son also needed time to play, inside, with his trucks...sure we brought a couple toys everywhere we went, but he was happier when he had a bit of down time. He was 18 months. This time we will travel with a 3.5 year old and 11 month baby.
