ANONYMOUSE – Or a Mouse town in Malmö

I love INSTAGRAM. At the beginning I used it to follow people I already knew, but then, it became a place to be inspired, to discover places where to eat or shop or even to meet new friends.

One of my last discoveries are these tiny shops in Malmö, Sweden. And I do not call them tiny due to their size, that in fact it is, but also for the type of customers that I suppose they have.

best books about outdoor activities with kids + a game

I remember my chilhood days, always running outside with my friends. Our legs and later, our bicycles, were our best adventure friends. Nowadays we live in a city and my kids are rising without contact with Nature. This is the reason why I began the search for the best books about outdoor activities with kids.

I have made a selection, some of them are in English and other in Spanish, but we hope the language will not be a problem, because nature speaks a unique language, the language of freedom. 

We wish these books help our family to get back outside. If you’re looking for an outdoor adventure this spring or summer, you’ll find plenty of inspiration in this post.

London with kids: The best resources to plan your trip

Londres-con-niños-urbanexplorer-cuteandkids-blog

London is huge. It’s made up of 32 boroughs and each has its own identity: from the hipster East in Hackney, to the touristy West End in the City of Westminster.

I really love this city. We’ve been in London manytimes, but soon will be the first time we will go with kids. That’s the reason why I am looking for the best plans for visiting London with kids.

SKETCHING AROUND THE WORLD

One thing I always wanted to have is a diary of my travels. A sketch book where to draw what I see and add my thoughts and experiences. And I have tried it, I promise, but I am simply too bad at drawing.

Pictures are great, but unless you can print them instantly,  I have the feeling that the diary loose the impressions of the moment and becomes just an album.

This is why I am completely in love with @a.aradilla sketchbook.

During one year, I have been travelling the world through her watercolors. Now she is back to Spain, but you can travel as well through her instagram account.

THE SRI LANKA SAFARI – Kid&coe

Traveling with kids is for me the best way to dip into the culture and life of whatever place you are visiting. They do not have a list with museums to see and they do not feel in a hurry to photograph every single spot in your travel guide. They only want to explore, to live the moment.

Kid&coe, the family friendly vacation rental, knows a lot about that. Luckily for those who love traveling, they have expanded their options around the world, including Safaris, boutique hotels and home exchange to their collection of vacation rentals.

St John’s eve or Midsummer’s eve with kids

The Feast of Saint John closely coincides with the June solstice, also referred as Midsummer in the Northern hemisphere. The celebration of Midsummer’s Eve (St. John’s eve among Christians) was from ancient times a festival of the Summer solstice.

Christian holy day is fixed at 24 June; but in most countries the festivities are mostly held the night before, on Saint John’s Eve or Midsummer’s Day. Even if you don’t usually celebrate it, it’s a wonderful occasion to do something fun with the kids.

TRAVELING THROUGH ILLUSTRATIONS

There is nothing I love more than traveling.

Packing few things and moving to a new city: meeting new people, trying new food, discovering museums or visiting landscapes.

I have tried to transfer my passion to my kids and sometimes we sit down in the sofa and travel with a map, or why not through fantastic illustrations that make us fly away. Read more
