The city is built on the canal system and old colorful architecture and you’ll be amazed at the many fun things to do in Amsterdam with kids. This city is also famous for its educational activities and museum; therefore, almost 20 million people visited the city annually. The Dutch pancakes of the street are famous; you can stop at any café to enjoy snacks with your children. When the sun is shining bright, take a boat tour to discover the picturesque Amsterdam; the best of the city is visible from the canal system.
Follow our campfire cooking pro tips so you can cook like a pro over a campfire with little more than a fire and a dutch oven. Use foil to line your Dutch Oven if you need to cook simple things like pot roast potatoes or meat. Place your food on top of the foil with seasoning, oil, cover the Dutch Oven with a lid, and place coals on top of the lid to create an oven-like atmosphere. If you have spare time, leave a little recipe card in each meal-prep bag, so if you want to take a night off cooking and leave it to someone else on the trip, all they need to do is follow the instructions, making life a little easier.
I quickly went through my closet and made a large pile of things to donate and a small pile of things I would still happily wear around the house or to the gym. My closet isn’t jam-packed with options, and I’ve found that I’m still most comfortable in jeans and ankle boots – I feel like a badass again, and I’ve released the self-loathing I’ve felt in the past few years, which is kind of miraculous considering If you’re considering refreshing your wardrobe seasonally, or need a whole new set of work clothes like I did, I highly recommend Dee’s Personal Stylist Services.
The proximity of the Badlands and Banff National Park offer unrivaled scenery, and everything from well-kept trails to exposed scrambles are on offer. Grotto Canyon Provincial Recreation Area is a short trip outside of Calgary and offers stunning hikes for all abilities. Johnston Canyon, found just outside of Banff and still an easy day trip from Calgary, is one of the most popular hikes in the region. Around 15km of trails wind their way into the Rocky Mountains, providing seclusion, peace and a fantastic experience of nature along the way.
We had a great afternoon riding up the @palmspringsaerialtramway to the Mt. San Jacinto State Park. It was cool at the top with traces of snow. We hiked to a viewpoint overlooking the valley at sunset. It was gorgeous. My photo doesn’t show how pink it was. We rode down in the dark for the first time. #visitpalmsprings #familytravel
