Travel Tuesday

Travel Tuesday is kind of a fun trend among travel Twitterers (or is it Tweeters?)  It's when travel bloggers, every Tuesday, highlight their favorite travel posts of the week and mark their tweet with the hashtag (#) #TravelTuesday or just #TT, to make them easy to locate.  So for Travel Tuesday today, I'd like to share some posts I came across that I find particularly helpful to families traveling to Europe with kids.

Florence Museums with Kids by Dim Sum, Bagels, and Crawfish - you don't want to miss the Uffizi, the Accademia Gallery, or other must-see museums in Florence, Italy, but how do you entice the little ones to endure (and even enjoy!) all that fine art?  This mom blogger who lives in Italy will tell you how.

Sleeping in a Tube in Switzerland by The Travelling Mom - love this post I just stumbled upon recently!  I'm a big fan of novelty accommodations when traveling, especially with children, because sometimes these places are what the kids are still talking about years later.  Igloo, tree house, train car, or The Travelling Mom's fun stay with her family in a tube - what a great time!  Check it out.

A-to-Z Family Travel Contest by Mo Travels - from animals to ziploc bags, these A-to-Z travel tips for family travelers are handy to know before you go.  J is for Journal, and there's an app for that . . . .

Seven Things to Do in Iceland by Nomadic Matt - Nomadic Matt doesn't travel with kids, but his suggestions on what to do in Iceland sound so exciting, and his photos are so beautiful, that I wanted to share this terrific travel destination with you.

Seven Reasons to Visit Spain's Costa de la Luz by BootsnAll - seven seems to be the magic number for reasons to go somewhere.  This post caught my eye and interest because southern Spain is our family's next European destination.   A magical and isolated old town, spectacular pueblos blancos, Moorish fortifications, and awesome windsurfing are all found here.

Super Duper Travel Adapter by Water Wine Travel - as far as travel gadgets go, anything that reduces clutter and cords is worth having.  This Super Duper Travel Adapter is handy and inexpensive - get one!
