SYDNEY TIP: THE BOTANIC GARDEN BEHIND THE OPERA HOUSE by Linda

Let me introduce myself: my name is Linda, I am a Dutchy but have been living in Australia for the past decade with husband and 1 year old son. Together we enjoy city life, places of natural beauty, hanging out with our friends, discovering new eateries and designers. Together with my sister I have a webshop in the Netherlands: Kiwi & Koala. Through Kiwi & Koala we are hoping to introduce the original, beautiful brands of Australia and New Zealand, many of which are run by mums like us. In each of the big cities in Australia you will find a botanic garden, a beautiful park in the middle of the city. Sydney’s botanic garden is magical: it is amazingly quiet despite its location in the middle of a city of 4 million people. (more…)

LET’S GO OUTSIDE, ‘CAUSE IT’S SPRING…! by Evelien

Evelien is mommy of Piet (2010), Tycho (2012) and pregnant with her third child and lives with pleasure with husband and kids in Amsterdam. She loves to discover places where the kids can freely move and play and where it looks and feels good for the parent(s) as well, because that can be a challenge sometimes. Luckily there are increasingly more places where this combination is a match. In the coming blogs she will share her findings with you guys. When spring starts and the coldest days are over, there’s the Pure Market (almost) every Sunday in one of Amsterdams cityparks. We are huge fans! (more…)

MUST VISIT: WITH THE KIDS TO THE RIJKSMUSEUM by Evelien

Evelien is mommy of Piet (2010) and Tycho (2012) and lives with pleasure with husband and kids in Amsterdam. She loves to discover places where the kids can freely move and play and where it looks and feels good for the parent(s) as well, because that can be a challenge sometimes. Luckily there are increasingly more places where this combination is a match. In the coming blogs she will share her findings with you guys. Winter, spring, summer or fall, sometimes it’s just hard to think of something ‘different’ to do with the kids inside. And to go to Ballorig every week… Although Piet and Tycho love that, so once in a while you can find me there too. (more…)

WITH THE KIDS TO A PERFORMANCE OF WONDERLAND by guest blogger Myra

Let me introduce myself; my name is Myra, I’m a lawyer and mother of twe sons Just (2010) and Quinten (2012). I live in Amsterdam, with my boyfriend and two kids. Regularly I go out with the boys on Friday, my day off. Of course my boys are super sweet ;) but also real boys who make a lot of noise, knocking over things, making a mess and want to run around. So you can assume that wherever I’m going and whatever I’m doing is in any case “kids proof”! A few weeks ago, I went to a play of Wonderland with the boys and the two daughters of a good friend. This play was in the Buiksloterkerk (North), a real cool spot to go to a play some time! But the makers of Wonderland have plays in several spots. (more…)

DUTCH DESIGN WEEK PART 1 – What to do with kids during the DDW?

The plan was to blog live from the DDW Bloggerscafe. In the morning we all went into the DDW to spot the coolest expo's and kids designs, to gather later at the bloggerstable to blog. But we had such a great time, that we didn't blog at all ;) But here are our suggestions, if ou want to visit the Dutch Design Week with kids. (more…)
