• Visiting Romania: Club Villa Bran

    Romania is not a well known family holiday destination but since I arrived at home I discovered that bit by bit places start to be more welcoming for kids.

Club Villa Bran is located into a very beautiful area – near Bran Castle.   We visited at the end of September last year but I bet that during winter or summer days the pictures taken from the resort will look even nicer.  As my…

    Best Family Attractions in Iceland

    Living between two countries is not easy at all as you can imagine. This is why we try to make the time we spend together more special. We don’t save as much money as we would hope but at least we make the time together special. In our previous holidays we’ve visited places like Disneyland Paris, Legoland, Peppa Pig World and Club Villa Bran, Romania. It was fun but as our kids are getting older we know that soon the magic of places like this will go away, so this is why my husband and I decided that the next big holiday will be in a nordic country like Finland,…

  • Castles of Transilvania

    Car rentals are so readily available these days that they offer a great excuse for dashing off to places you’ve often dreamt of visiting, without having to worry about the often Byzantine public transport systems of some destinations, especially those of Eastern Europe. Romania is a case in point. Still recovering from the ravages of Ceausescu, whose taste for concrete would have turned the whole country into a giant Southbank Centre given long enough, Romania is rediscovering its fascinating heritage and starting to draw in the tourists. Anyone with a taste for medieval fairytale castles and a passing interest in vampires will have a field day here, and other perhaps less…
