Vancouver with Baby

After 2 weeks of driving through The Rocky Mountains and exploring the natural wonders of the National Parks, we finally saw the urban skyline of Vancouver. We had planned 5 nights at the same place. Wow, that sounds like a bit of a rest in such an intensive trip. But does it? Well, resting is not something that we do while traveling – there is too much interesting to see and do. How can we possibly miss it?

Ottawa – Montreal – 1000 Islands in a Week with Baby

After an 8 hour night flight, we landed in Toronto when the sun was already going down. A short, due to the jet lag, night and we hit the road again. To Ottawa. It was 7am. Yes, early, but the little one woke up at 4am, and so did we. Therefore, we set off when it was already time for her first nap. And napping is the best thing to do in a car for a baby.

Why did we do such a crazy thing and didn’t stay in Toronto for a few days to adjust to the time and have some rest after the long flight? Well, we had our reason.

Have you Heard of Bydgoszcz?

If you haven’t lived in Poland nor learned its geography, I bet the answer for the most people will be no. Once, in Bydgoszcz airport, I had a chance to talk to a German lady, and I asked her how they name this city in German. Her reply was, she didn’t know as she had never heard of it in Germany.

But for us, it is not a touristic destination at all. This city has a special place in our hearts. Continue reading “Have you Heard of Bydgoszcz?”

Porto with Toddler

Porto is famous for its exclusive port wine and the bookshop Livraria Lello, which inspired J.K. Rowling for Harry Potter while she was living there between 1991 and 1993. Being a family with an active and still breastfeeding toddler, we had a different route to explore though and skipped Livraria and the tempting taverns offering all possible kinds of the iconic wine.

Up and Down Lisbon with Toddler

Lisbon, a city on seven hills, European San Francisco, a little bit of Rio de Janeiro, she greeted us with multi level clouds in the sky, white waves in the ocean and a marvelous Capo da Roca, the most western point of the continental Europe.

Books Every Parent Should Read

All things come into our possession with an instruction. Even a simple toy. More complex things go with a thick manual. But when a child arrives into our life, most people are equipped with very little information. Most new parents follow their intuition and there is no training, except for some guidance from parents’ preparation class, nurses, doctors and their own parents, relatives and friends.

Unfortunately, not always is it possible to receive a qualified and competent advice in your surrounding. That’s when good books come to rescue.
