Seal Beach California


Seal Beach is one of our favorite places in Southern California. While that's party true because our kids' great grandparents live there, it's also the beach that just feels like home to us when we visit. Our kids swear up and down that the water is warmer at Seal Beach than any other beach in Southern California, but I'm not entirely convinced that's true.

Mexico City: Highlights for Families


I was thirteen the first time I set foot in Mexico City. In my memory the city smells like fresh popcorn, tastes like cotton candy and is irrevocably tied to memories of long afternoons spent rowing in the pond in Chapultapec Park and watching the Voladores twist slowly down from the edge of the sky in ancient rituals to ancient gods. Guidebooks might call it dirty, loud, polluted and dangerous, but I call it my favourite city in the world.

Visiting the Stockyards in Fort Worth, TX


Maybe the days of the Wild West are long gone, but there is still a place where you can still catch the spirit of rambling plains and rugged cowboys.   The Historic Stockyards were established in 1876 with the arrival of the railroad in Fort Worth, and by 1907 over 1 million cattle were sold here every year. Today, the Stockyards are the only remaining stockyard in the country and are a great place for family fun.

Inexpensive Activities to Explore Nepal


Nepal opens its arms wide open to tourists seeking activities in the extreme department. It sports bungee jumping, canyoning, rafting, kayaking and paragliding. The reunion with nature has numerous possibilities to push oneself to the limit in Nepal. The most famous places frequented by tourists are Kathmandu, Pokhara and Lumbini. However, these adrenalin pumping activities may spell some serious cash, let alone the safety concerns for very young children.
