Kid Friendly Travel

Try To Invest In A Child Locator

Honestly speaking, when I traveled with my little one for the first time my experience wasn’t good, I realized you just can’t leash them. Little ones don’t like any contravention on their freedom. So take my honest suggestion, invests in a child locator if you are traveling through train station, bus station or airport. The child locator is not at all uncomfortable for the child they have to wear a small unit strap to their belt or shoe and you get to keep the transmitter. So incase if you lose your kid, just set off the alarm and follow the sound to find them.

Don’t Let Your Children Pack Their Backpacks

I once allowed my five year old to pack his backpack and all the time at the airport he kept complaining that his backpack was too heavy. Reason? Well when I opened his backpack I found he brought the entire fossil collection of his just in case. So another honest advice do let the kids pack their own bags

Storm Travel

Travel arranged

Naturally, this season is wet and sticky and you’re certain to keep running into frightening little animals. So keep mosquito anti-agents, hostile to tingle creams and disinfectants convenient. In case you’re wanting to trek or spend the night in a tent outside, get a convenient mosquito net. This decreases the odds of you being shrouded in bothersome chomps by morning. Acquiring a water-safe sack for assets, for example, cameras, telephones and Visas, and additionally any prescriptions, is an astute speculation against things getting demolished in a sudden storm.

Travel Destination Guide in Germany

First Germany Trip

Almost everything is smaller in Germany though. The roads, buildings, homes and shops are all smaller than what we’re used to here in the States. The person to area ratio is much higher in Germany so you don’t see many large parking lots, big homes or wide roads.

As a matter of fact, most Germans do not even own a home, they rent! If you’re visiting Germany for the first time I highly recommend you use public transportation, as you can get anywhere in the Country by bus and train and it’s cheap and quick. That way you don’t have to deal with the small roads, parking and differences in driving laws.

Germans are much less personable. Unlike many Americans it is not common for a German to comment on how cute your child is or make small talk while waiting in line. Many people who are not familiar with the German culture may see this as rudeness, but it’s just part of the culture and what they’re used to.

If you visit a public restroom, be prepared to drop 10 Euro cents or so in a donation tray. Very few public restrooms are free.

Flower Island In Mainau

Thinking about Lake Constance, the first thing that pops into ones mind is the Flower Island Mainau.

Mainau is the third-largest Island in Lake Constance and is 1,100 meters long and at one point 610 meters wide. Because of the mild Lake Constance climate an exotic tropical and sub-tropical fauna prospered here with palm trees and other Mediterranean plants. Grand duke Friedrich I started the park with the Arboretum north-west of the Island, where he planted 500 different species of broad-leaved trees and conifers, with some of them being very exotic and valuable. Simply huge are some of the giant redwood trees (Sequoiadendron giganteum), whose seeds came from California in 1853 and were planted by Friedrich I on the Island Mainau in 1864. Therefore they are some of the oldest of its kind in Europe.
