We’ve found on our new kid-free city breaks freedom that a perfect way to instantly get to know a new city is to take a walking tour with a knowledgeable local guide. Which is when we visited Amsterdam recently, we jumped at the chance of an Amsterdam walking tour, thanking Eating Europe and signing up instantly for their Jordaan Food Tour.

Create Your Own Happy Review

I’ve been looking forward to this little book for so long now – but the Create Your Own Happy review is finally here! Woot! It’s a pretty universal wish that we all want our children to be happy.
