The Bohemian Paradise (also known as Czech Paradise or Cesky Raj) is a beautiful protected area in the Czech Republic.

Hiking Cinque Terre with Kids

Hiking Cinque Terre with Kids is an amazing thing to do on a family vacation to Italy

We love hiking with our kids while traveling, so when we were planning our family vacation to Italy, we knew hiking Cinque Terre with our kids was a must. Cinque Terre is one of Italy’s most beautiful locations and the hiking between the legendary five coastal villages is truly epic.

The Cinque Terre villages are so beautiful and charming, but the Cinque Terre hiking trails often lead you to elevated viewpoints which give views you simply don’t get from the five villages. And best of all, we were able to share this experience with our two kids, aged 1 & 3.

the famous Ciudad Perdida archaeological site

We read a ton of blog posts prior to our Ciudad Perdida, Colombia trek in December 2019. Knowing what to expect and what to bring on the Ciudad Perdida trek (also known as the Lost City trek) was important to us. We were grateful for a lot of the insights, but we found that a lot of the top-ranking posts on the subject are a little outdated, causing us to bring some items we hadn’t needed to.

Hiking Angels Landing in Zion National Park Solo

Though I love traveling with kids, I’m the first to say that at times I do miss the days of traveling pre-kids. Don’t get me wrong, I love having them there and wouldn’t have it any other way, but there are usually things we’d like to do that are impossible with kids. I do not often like to admit that things are “impossible” with kids, but hiking Angels Landing definitely falls into that category.
