Review: Deuter Kid Comfort III child carrier

Specially designed for hiking, this super safe padded child carrier with a 5 point harness seat is as comfortable for you as it is for your baby Hello again! I haven’t posted in a while, mostly because we’ve been out and about in the mountains with the kids most weekends thanks to the newest member…

SUNDAY STROLL
Easy peasy with great views of Lake Viñuela

This can’t really qualify as a “walk” – an adult could bound down here in less than ten minutes. But taking in to account there were 6 little, easily distracted legs walking with us, we managed to while away an hour and a half or so on this campo track – finding the best stick,…

Essential family camping list

After a ton of camping this summer I’ve learned a thing or two about what to bring… and what to leave behind! Sample mistakes: On our big trip in June I packed way too many clothes – we spent 90% of the time in swim suits. The next trip I forgot the frying pan AND…

CITY OF STONE
The Jurassic landscape of El Torcal

It’s hair dryer blowing in your face weather and I’m craving fresh air and exercise. Not doable in this heat, even turning my head too fast produces a film of sweat on my forehead. Really, it’s that hot. So in lieu of anything more strenuous I’m writing up this post I started back in April…

GREAT VALUE FAMILY PASS
at the Bioparc in Fuengirola

I was recently moaning about the crazy, unbelievable, I-don’t-know-how-families-can-afford-it entrance prices for theme parks (Aquavelis, Tivoliworld, Selwo etc) here in Malaga but I’d completely forgotten about the bioparc in Fuengirola and their yearly pass which is actually fantastic value if you intend going more than once. The Pase Berde If you’re on holidays for a…

FIESTA EN FOTOS
Foam party at Cómpeta Feria

It’s still hot hot hot!!! and the children (as mentioned in my last post) are still glued to the pool… but we did manage to drag them away last weekend for the annual foam party in Cómpeta. We’re all big kids in our house and we love a good fiesta de espuma. At this time…

COOLING OFF
A day trip to Aquavelis water park

The summer has really started to sizzle. Alas, just like myself, the twenties are now a distant memory. We’re basking in the mid to late thirties and dreading the forties that lurk just around the corner. Enthusiasm for days out has dwindled with the kids – they just want to hang by the pool. For…

ROAST IN A ROLL
A tasty snack where you’d least expect it

I am very happy to share this post with you as I think this is a real “find”. In Spain sometimes you find deliciousness in the most unlikely places. So I’ve already told you what it is… but let me keep you guessing for a bit as to where. This is the deliciousness I speak…
