In an effort to not be overcome by the winter doldrums we took the family to an indoor waterpark in early February. We figured some warm water fun would lift everyone’s spirits.  Duinrell Tikibad Water Park  in Wassenaar, not far from The Hague, is part of the larger Duinrell Vakantie Park. Duinrell has an amusement park […]

Something Extra, a costume shop on a main road into Delft, offers a variety of “Dutch” photo options. Although we did this as a couples activity, they also do family portraits. Actually, they will do just about […]

Corfu was our first stop in Greece. It greeted us with a beautiful city ripe for walking around and exploring. Our MSC cruise was in Corfu from 2pm to 8pm. The late arrival did not take advantage of our kids’ best hours, but we made it work by exploring on our own and arriving back […]

When we first moved to the Netherlands, Den Haag felt like a huge city. I mostly kept to the quiet corners of Delft, venturing into Den Haag only when necessary for appointments or a visit to the Apple Store. I would accomplish my task and quickly head back to my own little corner of the […]

The Cruise Port of Civitavecchia, Italy provides access to Rome. We arrived into port at 7:30am well ahead of the 9am scheduled arrival. Although we were early the wind was howling and the rain was pouring down. We spent breakfast watching the sea break over the breakwaters and discussed our plan. This was my sister’s first […]
