Weekend Get-Away: Copenhagen
July 22, 2011
Did you know that apparently the Danish have the highest standard of living in all of Europe and possibly the world? And the highest standard of living in Denmark must be in Copenhagen, so I reckon it must be a very, very cool place to visit especially with kids: clean, safe, and beautiful (and by ...

Weekend Get-Away: Boston
May 20, 2011
According to my friend, Marika, who is a regular visitor -- Boston is an absolutely fantastic city to visit with kids because it is jam-packed with things to do for the whole family, regardless of age and interest.  It's also super easy to get around town, either on foot or by public transport.  The centre ...

Chicago Weekend Get-Away
April 29, 2011
Chicago has a special place in my heart as I lived close by in Illinois a very, very long time ago (between the ages of 6 and 8).... I have vague memories of going up the John Hancock building and trying to get my head around the fact that Lake Michigan is actually a lake ...

Weekend Away Kuala Lumpur
April 1, 2011
Kuala Lumpur is one of my top ten favourite cities. One of my closest friends lives over there, and so, before kids, I used to visit almost once a year. Kuala Lumpur is such a great mix between a modern metropolitan city and an ethnically diverse melting pot, full of history and buzzing with energy. ...

This time our Weekend Get-Away guide is all about the vibrant city of Toronto.

This weekend get-away post I am very, very excited about as it was written by my very dear friend Petra who I went to college with a long, long time ago in the Kent countryside of snowy England. After college we both moved to London and had some great times - to say the least. ...

Weekend get-away: Berlin
October 9, 2010
This week's get-away is from one of my favourite cities, Berlin, which I cannot wait to go visit with my kids. Rumour has it that it is one of the most child-friendly cities in Europe. Judith is a freelance writer who loves to travel. She is also a mother of two (a 5 and a ...

Weekend get-away: Hong Kong
September 10, 2010
If you travel internationally it is very hard not to have a stop-over at some point in Hong Kong. Chances are that you are on a long-haul flight so it is the perfect place to take a break in your journey. But it has never seemed to me like a kid-friendly place, so I was ...

Weekend get-away: Athens
August 6, 2010
Greece is a dream holiday destination -- the beautiful islands, the history, the coffee and the food. Athens is the the main hub and starting point for most trips to Greece, so why not spend a couple of days discovering this historic city, before hitting the beach? Pepi, an Athens native, was gracious enough to ...

Babyccino Kids Weekend Get-aways
July 10, 2010
Before having kids, traveling was a piece of cake. You could book a last-minute flight, zip off to an unknown destination, take a quick break, relax and discover a new city.  It didn't really matter where you stayed, where you ate, how long it took to get there, etc. But now, all those logistics must ...

Auckland, NZ
January 10, 2010
After a 12-hour overnight flight from Los Angeles, we landed in rainy (!!!) and grey Auckland, NZ. Not the most welcoming sight for a family seeking summer, but I was so relieved to have survived the flight that I didn't care too much. And  by that afternoon the sun was out and shining. Apparently New ...
