Get your guide
There are so many activities to choose from, and I love that you can make a wishlist (highly recommend). Their cancellation policy is fantastic and their customer service is top-notch, too.
These “free” walking tours are run by locals who love their city, and it shows. Book a time slot and then leave a tip/donation at the end of your tour based on what you think the tour was worth!
Find something unique and fun to do when you’re traveling. There are so many fun things to pick from, plus, you likely already have an account, so see what’s near your destination today!

favorites for family accommodation
Traveling in Europe with kids is a totally different ball game, and it can honestly be a little overwhelming trying to find a place for your family to stay. Here’s a quick breakdown of places we’ve stayed at, liked, and recommend. If you have a question about a specific place, shoot me an email!

Not all hotels are created equal, but I do my best to find the best, safest, and cleanest family-friendly places for our crew of five to stay when we’re on a trip.
OUR favorite family travel things…
there’s a lot of stuff out there;
these are tried and true things we actually use and can’t travel without.
This passport holder holds up to 6* passports (we actually get 10 to fit!). Plus, you can use the zippered pocket to hold other important documents. It’s a must-have for family travel.
Make packing easier with cubes. Each family member has their own color to use (super handy for long trips, like when we move with the military).
Travel with please of mind with this purse. In fact, I have three from the same company. This one, a smaller one, and a backpack. The zippers lock, giving an extra layer of protection.
If you’re traveling with young kids and you go on road trips, you NEED this! All of my kids use this (even my 9-year-old)…when you’ve gotta go, you’ve gotta go!
Fold Up Booster
Safety first, right? But when you have multiple kids, lugging around a giant car seat while traveling is HARD. Enter this fold-up booster seat; our kids carry their own in their backpacks!
This Kindle is great for smaller hands, and excellent for budding readers to take on trips. (TIP: keep an eye out for Black Friday sales!)
