Ponta da Piedade

Woke up early today to head to the beach, what do you think the chances we got to the beach today are? Correctamundo! Zero. Decided to go through old town again to find a towel for the beach idea and grab some coffee. Ended up venturing around for a bit while the sun was hidden behind some …

Off To Lagos

Day 14 Up early for a quick flight to Faro Airport (main airport in the Algarve). Quick transfer to Lagos and we are at our hotel. We could tell quickly we would like it here and so far it has not disappointed. We read that the beaches here are part of the draw so we …

Last Day in Madrid

The second time going to any city always has a hard time living up to the memory of the first. Especially with a city you really like. Maybe the taste of inexperience is better. Madrid was amazing for us the first time here and while this time it was still great, it really is a …

Holy Toledo ;)

So we said our good byes to our favourite stop so far. We had a 4 PM ticket out of there but with hotel check outs and nap times that time just didnt work for us so instead of staying one more night we made the tough decision to leave on the 1:25 PM train …

Churros and Prado

Today was pretty chill. Walked along the streets of Salamanca, Chueca and Sol and stopped by for some Tapas. Had our favourites (Pimientos and Chorizo) as well as a 3 cheese quiche. Going through Puerto Del Sol we saw some mariachis playing and our son decided to join them for a song.  We swung by the Prado Museum …

I swear everyone loves kids here, its great. Neither of us could imagine stopping at every infant we see and squeezing their cheeks but here its a …

Tips For Our Kids…

When They Grow Up Part of the reason we went on this trip was to prove to ourselves (and maybe to a lesser extent, others as well) that you can travel and have fun with kids. A lot of people have told us that when they have kids the travel stops. Granted, we get that …

No Dolphin Show For You!!!

Started off the day with some fresh eggs (scrambled) along with some Valencian tomatoes (which were great) and some fresh bread ($.60 per fresh loaf pretty much any store that sells bread). Great start. We wanted to try some sites for the children today so we walked along the Turia river (which is a dry river …

That Market Though

Started the day off getting lost a bit looking for a breakfast restaurant called Dulce De Leche in Ruzafa (a trendy area in Valencia that our host recommended to us). Place was packed. Our oldest had a freak out. Scene #6 or 7 so far. The food was great and everyone seemed very happy to come …

Dont Sleep In…

Our train leaves at 10, we woke up at 8:30 (thought we got over that jet lag…) so we rush to finishing packing the last few things we needed and ran to find a cab. Luckily, we get to the station with about 10 minutes to spare. Tip #5, even if the kids are free they …
