Traveling by train with a child

Traveling by train is one of the best ways to explore the Europe.  It is also one of my favorite ways of traveling.  Luckily, in a few of my recent trips, I found out it is also completely child friendly.

How I decided to take # 12 nature trips challenge

We are living in a busy world. It’s not something new. Most of us are working 40+ hours per week, mostly sitting by the computer and are dealing with stressful situations on a daily basis.
