The Côte d'Azur is a great place to be for Christmas with plenty of fun, unusual and traditional events taking place throughout the festive period.  Blessed with 300 days of sunshine a year, many of which fall over the Holidays, this is a lovely time to be in Nice and the surrounding area.  Here's a short list of 6 top things to do in and around Nice at Christmas suitable for families, couples and individuals of all ages.  And best of all my suggestions won't break the bank, most of them are absolutely free.

16 days in Vietnam

Posted by on in World Travel

Since we returned from our trip to Vietnam I’ve been asked over and again to write down our itinerary as friends who followed along on Facebook were impressed by how much we managed to see in just over 2 weeks and others just want to know where we went.  I won’t go into how we felt returning after 20 years or what the kids felt about their first experience of Asia, nor any reflections or descriptions here, just the basics of our itinerary (with the odd adjective thrown in for good measure).  So here it is:  16 days of family travel in Vietnam.
