Back to the Future in Futuroscope, France

With the speed of change in modern life, a future -themed attractions park always faces the challenge of staying.. futuristic. To celebrate its 20th anniversary, Futuroscope, the second largest theme park in France, just rebuilt more than half its attractions. And the result is at the amazing edge of technology and imagination. So we can look to the future right now!

 

We promised our energetic young ones, seven year-old son and five year-old daughter, a stop on our tour to spend a week-end traveling in the future. Futuroscope is located near Poitiers and has its own TGV train station linking it at high speed to several cities in France. The train is absolutely the best way to get there as you can climb out the train and walk straight into the park after a ninety minutes trip. After checking in at one of the several nearby hotels, you walk ten minutes and find yourself in another time, another planet, another universe. If you like seeing your children's eyes go really wide (and don't mind a surprise yourself) you will not be disappointed.

Fun Things To Do With kids At Disney, World Epcot Center, USA

There were a lot of problems with my planning a trip for family in Walt Disney World Epcot. I wanted to make our family reunion cruise, and to make memories. Me and kids (daughter 7yo and son 12 yo) have never been to Disney Epcot and I thought we should go to each park. But my husband went there when he was about 5 and was bored to tears. He said me he wants to skip Disney World Epcot. I told him what Disney World has really changed since he was 5 that's for sure. I thought we should go to each park. My husband decided to go with us, even he will be bored.

 

Epcot price of entrance just about floored me. But I thought, "Hey, it's Disney. It'll be spectacular."

 

Kevin, our kids and I arrived at Epcot center around 9:45 via shuttle from our Epcot hotel. Epcot is a bit different from the other amusement parks in Orlando. It's the most "adult" of all the Disney parks, with lots of interesting Epcot attractions, Epcot food, and drinks. When I was planning our visit to Epcot I tried to allow two full days to touring the park.

Visiting Venice with Kids, Italy

Venice picsWe have just got back from Venice Italy with our three childen.We tried venice activities , it was our Venice for kids

We stayed at Venice hotel Residence Corte Grimani. It was situated in an old palace within an old private courtyard away from the coming and going of tourists, and yet in the very center, a 2-minute walk from Saint Mark's Square and from Rialto Bridge. Our venice apartments had a small balcony right over the canal which was on one on the main Gondoliers routes which passed by every few minutes. We just loved having our venice meals overlooking the canal and watching people pass by over Goldoni Bridge and listening to the gondoliers singing.
