Cartagena with kids

Visiting Cartagena with kids was a great decision for our yearly spring break trip! The historic, colonial-era city is located in the north of Colombia, and is brimming with architecture, culture, and kid-friendly activities. When my family decided to visit during April, we split our time between Cartagena’s two areas: the walled city, and a nearby island. Besides a great way to escape the New York cold, it also provided us with a dual perspective on how wonderfully diverse a trip to Cartagena with kids can be!

Skiing in Zermatt with Kids

I first saw the Matterhorn on a Toblerone wrapper when I was a child, and had since been fascinated by the jagged mountain range. This past February, I finally got to witness the Matterhorn’s beauty when I traveled to Zermatt— the vast and brilliant beauty of the Matterhorn coupled with the quiet charm of the surrounding ski town exceeded my romanticized expectations of the area. Needless to say, skiing in Zermatt with kids was one of my favorite family vacations.

WHY WE ATTENDED SUMMER CAMP IN SPAIN

“I have made it my mission as a mother, to expose my kids to various cultures and customs while they are young enough to feel the sense of wonder, I remember so well from my own growing-up years.” By Gunjan Prakash

Kids at International Summer Camps

Ever since I was seven or eight years old, I remember my parents taking me on summer vacations abroad. Visiting different countries, trying diverse foods, and waking up in hotels around the world was the highlight of my childhood. These early trips taught me the value of experiences over possessions — a lesson I’ve never forgotten.

As a parent myself, I want to make sure I instill the same love of travel in my kids. So, I started by taking them on trips when they were very young. Today, I have made it my mission as a mother, to expose my kids to various cultures and customs while they are young enough to feel the sense of wonder, I remember so well from my own growing-up years. And what better way to introduce them to different cultures than to put them in an international summer camp?

Olympic-themed winter at Lake Placid with kids

Lake Placid is an adorable town in upstate New York. It’s most famous for hosting the 1980 Winter Olympic Games, including the men’s hockey “Miracle On Ice.”

There are many winter activities to participate in — from bobsledding to snowshoeing to skiing to ice skating, there is sure to be something for everyone. And if you need a break from all the snowy fun, Lake Placid has a cute downtown area to browse.

Out of all East Coast ski destinations I’ve visited, I found Lake Placid to be the most vibrant and active. Plus, decorations during the holiday season make the place look magical!

If you are looking to spend a few days in Vietnam to relax and move at a slower pace, the Angsana Lang Co is a great resort to visit. The resort is situated on East Sea and surrounded by the lush green forests of the Truong Son mountain range at Laguna Lăng Cô. The Angsana Hotel is a beautiful, secluded, luxurious waterfront retreat located near the remote village of Lang Co. It shares the property with The Banyan Tree resort. While The Banyan Tree is catered more towards couples, Angsana is definitely a family resort.
