Ciao Roma!

The only thing on the agenda for today was to take it easy and relax and eat less. Failed on all three accounts.  We stopped at Eataly, an old train station that has been converted to a 5 story Italian Shop with 18 or so restaurants.  The store has pretty much everything you can imagine […]

More Paris

So another busy day in Paris. A bit of shopping, a lot of walking, a lots of snacking but generally relaxing.  Today we climbed 24 floors, mostly getting up to the Pantheon and walking up the hill  by Sorbonne, and walked about 23,600 steps which is about 13.6km.  Good workout!

Going North

We are setting off  for a week of holidays.  The children are getting their first fall school break, which is well deserved and earned as they have been working very hard both in school and with Saskia their private tutor.  We are going to be heading up to Denmark and Sweden driving mostly through Germany.

Legoland – Deutschland

The happiest place on earth, at least right now for Boris and Evelina is Legoland.  About 197km outside Nuremberg or 1.30h drive from Nuremberg  is Legoland-Allee, Günzburg Legoland.  We got a family pass for all Legoland attractions throughout Europe for 1 year, unlimited admission for €257 including parking.  This includes all Legoland fees, free parking, London […]
