vtravelled Weekly Round-Up: w/c 21st Feb

Our weekly round-up of travel-related web wonders featuring plenty for kids and those who like to party and be pampered…

LDN – Street art School

Following our own Kids’ Guide to London, we were alerted to this:  http://www.graffitilessons.co.uk/ Lessons in aerosol art for children and adults!

Pride, prides and pampering

Cape Town Pride kicked off yesterday and while we can’t join the party, we have been looking longingly towards South Africa. I mean, aside from the parties and the incredible scenery, who could honestly resist a country with singing lions?

And where would we stay? Well, Ocean View House in Camps Bay looks pretty inviting, doesn’t it?


Art and eats in the Apple

Last week, we had a look at the best current art exhibitions including those in eternally arty NYC, but what if you’re visiting with little ones? Well, New York expert Mommy Poppins has just the ticket with Five Artsy Indoor Places for Tots.

And when you’re done with the arts, round off your visit to the Apple with some sugar and take A New York City Doughnut Tour. Yum!

Travel apps update – kids

Recently we compiled a list of Essential Apps for Travel Lovers, but we only just stumbled on this guide over at Momeo: iPhone Apps for Entertaining Kids On-the-Go. So charge that phone up and keep yours occupied on your travels.

Improve your travel photography

Finally, a nod to our very own travel photography expert, Steve Davey, whose excellent post this week, How To: Photograph Cloudsshows us how to make the most of the sky, whatever the weather… Just the latest in all-encompassing guide series that will help make your travel shots stand out.
