Family Experiences


Throw away gadgets. Discard expert opinions. Forget the toys to stimulate intelligence. Don’t buy devices to simulate what is real.

Return to the real. Connect with your children heart-to-heart. Let them gaze at you, at trees and water and the sky. Let them feel their pain. Feel it with them.

Touch them with your hands, your eyes and your heart. Let them bond with the living, breathing world. Let them feel their feelings and teach them their names. Let them explore and try new things. Don’t be afraid.

Return to the uncarved simplicity.

When my children were born, I did not want to give up my hobbies and interests. But I did not want to spend time away from my babies either. For that reason, I started to look for holiday destinations, activities and events suitable for the whole family. Quality places and things to do with an added (educational) value for both children and adults. I share these family travel recommendations and family outings and events on my Family Experiences Blog. Often people were asking me how I was able to manage so many activities together with my kids. We cook, garden and hike together. We craft, we paint and we travel. And we started to create our own events.

I believe that children are capable of everything. With complete and profound respect for the child and a mindful effort to spending time with each other, all is possible. When you connect with the people that you love most, great things happen. Therefore, do not hesitate, find what you like to do and do it together with your children.

Let’s make memories together!
