Celebrating Christmas at the regal Sandringham House is the one royal tradition the Queen never misses. It is four full days of fun, family reunion, and royal routines that have been in existence since a very a long time. Although the whole setting is one that of muted grandeur, the one wish of all those who take part is the same: keep the Queen happy and contented.

Whether your internal temperature gauge is set to Fahrenheit or Celsius, as the mercury level climbs there is only so much a gelato can do. So do as the Italians do and head to the water. With over 40 pools in Florence it makes for a quick fix from the heat. They are all fairly easy to get to and relatively inexpensive. A quick run down of a few.

The biggest and most impressive of the bunch is the Costoli Pool, located near Campo Di Marte stadium. read full article

Norway’s capital city is Oslo and is also the largest city in the country. For many summer vacationers, it is a popular tourist destination because the climate is mildly warm and there is much to see and do when visiting this historical Scandinavian city. Another characteristic of Oslo is that it is one of the most kid-friendly destinations in the world. Consequently, many families will vacation here during the summer months when school is not in session.

While it may not be possible to take children on any and every adventure they dream of, one of the joys of literature is that they can discover the world around them from the comfort of home. This is a great way to inspire youngsters about travel before a trip or simply increase their awareness of other lands and cultures. Here is my pick of travel books for kids, with notes on the appropriate age group for each.

I sometimes feel a bit sorry for the children when they’re taken around cities like Florence and dragged to boring places like museums, galleries, churches and shops. They might realise what they’ve missed out on in about twenty years but that’s not what they want to hear there and then. What they want to hear is they’re heading off to somewhere really fun today. So here are a few ideas for days out in between the Duomo and the Academy of Fine Arts. If Brad and Angelina can do it then so can you.

Denmark’s capital, Copenhagen, has repeatedly been recognised as one of the cities with the best quality of life. Bright, cosmopolitan and environmentally friendly (the water in the inner harbour is so clean it can be swum in) the city is a safe and popular destination for families. And with child-friendly museums, architecture that seems straight out of a fairy-tale and several amusement parks within easy reach, it’s not hard to see why.
