Name: Felix (14 months)
Location: Amsterdam (pictured at a small park in De Pijp)
Favorite Family-Friendly Place To See or Thing To Do Here: So many...the parks were amazing. Lot's of ducks to feed and fun playgrounds. We even managed to find a lovely, organic goat farm to feed goats. The city is very child friendly. All the cafes and even bars were most welcoming to Felix. We did only venture out in the day time mostly, but it was really family oriented.

Best Tip for Traveling with Kids: Be laid-back (don't expect to cram loads in each day) and research the places you are going really well (find parks, lakes, zoos, etc). Stopping for snacks a lot as well!

Favorite Way to Make it Feel Like Home: We camped in Belgium and the Netherlands...so we made the tent as cozy as possible. Just make your child feel like they are part of the plans and it won't matter too much that you are not at home. It is an adventure after all.

An Item you MUST Take With You While Traveling: Well for the age of Felix at the time of traveling...a baby sling and reins.

Thanks Olivia!
