Nobis Hotel Copenhagen – Scandinavian splendour with a view of Tivoli
The Nobis Hotel Copenhagen is a beautiful contradiction. It’s housed in a palatially grand former music academy building on the corner of one of the city's busiest boulevards, yet is unstuffy and somehow very quiet. It’s decorated in a contemporary fashion, in blacks, greenish-blues and greys, yet somehow it's warm and inviting. It’s a luxury hotel, that ...

Hotel Roemer
I mostly recommend Hotel Roemer for its convenient location, right next to the Vondelpark and only a short walk away from the centre of town. The hotel is located in a quiet residential street, lined with trees and with beautiful examples of late 19th century architecture. For families, it is a suitable base to explore Amsterdam -- either by ...

Splendom Suites
Perfectly located in the Eixaple district of Barcelona is this all encompassing family aparthotel called Splendom Suites. Although the interiors are not the type I'd pick for my home, it still has a homely feel to it, and most importantly was set up by an avid traveler family. Meaning they know how to organise things to ...

Located in the middle of the Eixample Dret, surrounded by the cities most iconic sites lies Casa Bonay. Originally home to the Bonay family, this establishment was built in 1869, and although the building itself has been remodelled countless times, the neoclassical facade remains untouched. Home now to 67 rooms, Casa Bonay boasts of luminous ...

Hotel Molitor
Reopened a few years ago as a luxury hotel and spa, Molitor has not always been the same. Yet, regardless of its primary function, this amazing space was, is, and will probably always be a Parisian institution. First opened in 1929, the avant-garde Molitor was Paris' most famous swimming pool for 60 years, turning into ...

Casa Mathilda, a charming bed & breakfast
Only a ten minute walk from Gaudis Casa Batlló, and a 15-minute walk from La Sagrada Familia, finding this little bed & breakfast has been such a fantastic surprise. Having only 14 rooms, Casa Mathilda has a modern but rustic spaces whist still keeping the catalan architectural roots, and many of the original features, like ...

Earlier this week, a successful beauty blogger in the Netherlands, Nikkie de Jager @nikkietutorials publicly announced that she is transgender. A very brave thing to do and was incredibly impressed by her story and the way she chose to share it. If you haven’t seen it yet, there is a lot to learn from Nikkie’s coming out video on youtube. It is an inspiring message from a strong roll model, addressing young people who feel insecure, misunderstood or simply not in the right place. It is about acceptance, respect, hearing and understanding each other, about writing your own story, about the power of being yourself — whoever you are and whatever you are. It is also about the importance of supportive parenting. Nikkie shares that she is intensely grateful for her mother, who always saw and heard, listened and understood, respected and supported her in her choices and in her transition. We have always tried to be straightforward in discussing sex and reproduction with our children, and open about the idea that heterosexuality is just one shade of a wider spectrum of diversity.

If you’re looking for an idea to help children run off that pre-dinner energy, this is it... a winter scavenger hunt! The idea from our lovely Shannon @slcorlis is a pretty loose and flexible one: to walk around after dark and see how many winter and holiday things kids can spot either decorating homes and businesses or peeking through windows. Decorations are often left up until early January, so there’s still plenty of time to have a go at this before the end of the season. See her helpful how to on today’s blog. #babyccinokids #scavengerhunt #winteractivities
