Jenography on Yahoo: The worst places to take children

Worst vacation spots for kids: Jenography on Yahoo TravelWe all love talking about the best places to take our families. Well, last week I had the opportunity to talk about the flip side: the worst places to take children.

As it turns out, there are very few “terrible” places to take children, judging from the places mentioned by the other bloggers included in the piece, featured on Yahoo! Travel. It’s mostly down to bad timing — like at the destinations I mentioned — or not enough planning or, ahem, “adult” situations in which the adults don’t act very grown-up.

It’s pretty exciting to be featured on Yahoo! Travel, one of the biggest travel content providers in the world. I recently wrote another piece for them: I Flew Business Class While My Kids Flew Coach. So What?

    I have to say that whilst I love living here, bringing kids under the age of 10 years old to Moscow for a short break is not for the faint-hearted. I may have to write a post on that, about why… thanks for the inspiration!

    You flew business class while your kids flew coach? I am clapping to you. I wish I was able to do so, but leaving my 2 year old with my 7 year old without any supervision just cannot imagine.

      2 years old might be a *little* young but I do recommend it!
