The Kidspace Children's Museum in Pasadena
Most children's museums (that we have been to) are indoors. Which is quite a bummer when the weather is nice out! The Kidspace Museum in Pasadena has exhibits indoors and outdoors, which is one of the many reasons we really like visiting. The museum sits on a 3.5 acre lot and next to the Rose ...

Swifty Scooters -- a fun and safe way to explore and travel
In my ever continuing search to find the ideal transport to cross Paris easily and quickly -- I have come to the conclusion that travelling independently, i.e. with wheels or by foot, is the best way to get from A to B. First and foremost it lets us enjoy the beautiful city we live in. ...

We are well and truly back to school over here in Paris. The long nights and slow mornings of the summer holidays are over. It's back to the real life routine. I just read this article and it really struck home with me. As I have mentioned before, mornings are not our forte. We are ...

PARENTING TIPS
Teenagers -- let them vent!
When my girls were small, their problems seemed smaller. A cuddle and a kiss solved most problems. But as they grow bigger, so does the complexity of their problems. I cannot just rush in like Batman anymore and make everything okay.  One new development I have noticed as my kids getting older is the need ...

Teens - Navigating the rocky waters of social media
Teens and social media is a 'hot potato' topic (as we say in French). The fact is: as much as I love the idea of a totally unplugged childhood, we will not be able to avoid social media forever.  We ourselves use social media, and for good reason -- it is a simple way to ...

After school activities: when is it too much?
After school activities can be great for keeping your kids active and entertained beyond the school day. They can encourage your children to hone skills they might not necessarily have the chance to practice in school, and it can be a wonderful opportunity for kids to make new friends outside of their classroom. However, having ...

Copenhagen's Harbour Buses – Seeing the city from the water
When you're in Copenhagen, there's water, water, everywhere, and it follows that in this city, the connection to it is magnetic. Great efforts have been made to make the harbour clean enough to swim in, and there are bright orange ladders emerging from it everywhere, so that you can dive in where you like and ...

Skydebanehaven – A 70-year-old secret playground for Copenhagen's children
If Vesterbrogade feels busier than most other parts of the city, that's because it is – and it's not just a feeling, it's a fact: this is the most densely populated area in the (albeit small) country of Denmark. Its streets edge the main train station, Københavens Hovedbanegård (Copenhagen's Central Station); it's where its red ...
