European Roadtrip #9 | Eastern Europe | So what did we get up to?

European Roadtrip #9 | Eastern Europe | So what did we get up to?

It’s been an eye opening view into another side of European culture for our girls. Full of new adventures with plenty of new friends met along the way. It’s been full of ‘wide eyed’ stares at the poverty witnessed in Poland or Hungary, yet these are often the places with the warmest of local people… We’ve seen the impressive canals of Venice, climbed the steep cliffs of Split and been staggered by the beauty in Budapest, Vienna or Prague.

Imagine taking your kids across Eastern Europe? Do you agree that life’s more fun when you spend it enjoying new adventures or experiences. Well we thought that should be the case too. So regardless of how big or small they might be, we thought we’d open our girls eyes by taking them across 13 countries in Central/Eastern Europe over 2months. If you’d like to find all our blog posts for this adventure then click here, but we hope you find plenty of inspiration for your next family holiday or roadtrip from visiting the WW2 Berlin Wall, Prague’s Astronomical ClockTower or Budapest’s thermal baths….

NEW ‘LIFEINOURVAN’ ARTICLES – In between the island hopping adventures in Croatia, or the visits to historic cities… we even grabbed the chance to try and write down  a few ideas to share with any other families who might be considering creating their own adventures.
