Re: Family Friendly Attractions in Malta

On my first visit to Malta I was exploring the Megalithic Monuments when a group and their guide arrived. She was explaining to the folks the stones where blood sacrifices were made. So I stayed within earshot for a free tour - at a discreet distance. Then she turned and pointed at me ! " where that couple are standing is a Fertility Temple! " Whoooa !! We moved away quickly ! But too late - we had been chosen by the Goddess of Fertility ! That was on the 29 December - and on the 29...

Hello Jason and thanks for the interesting and informative post about family Malta. I am resident here myself and I agree with the family attraction side of the island. It's a fun place to visit and I do notice many families enjoying their time together.

Re: New Orleans—Museum Highlights Young Voices of Resilience

Great post! New Orleans is such a vibrant and amazing city with rich history & culture. The people of the city lived through such a horrific event, but to see that some light has come out of the darkness is uplifting.

It's a nice chapter in the grim story of New Orleans post Katrina. Thanks for sharing this with us; I hope the Children's Museum ends this exhibit with a flourish. The city and those who stayed are resilient. Kudos to them and to the many other Americans who gave of their time and resources to help the city recover and rebuild. There's no place anywhere like New Orleans and I need to get back there sometime soon.

Thanks for, in a way, welcoming me back. My last visit was a grim one, working as a volunteer preparing flooded houses for rebuilding (or demolition) a year after Katrina. In many ways, I've put off coming back, in part in anger at how little was done and how long it took, and in part a fear of finding something like New-Orleansland. While I know nothing can ever be the same...and many things shouldn't be...I see, both through the report and through the children, reason to return!

Great piece! Yes, it is good to hear from our children about what they learned in the past decade living in New Orleans after the storm. So many were impacted, many were harmed and suffered PTSD. Great to hear kids speak about the positive outcomes from their Katrina experiences. I can't wait for the new LA Childrens Museum to open in its new and amazing facility in City Park, another NOLA gem. Ya'll come visit soon and often to experience a city like no other, New Orleans. It has not been...

Sailing has everything you want in a vacation in a single convenient package. There is so much you can do on a boat. But, every sailing vacation is always different. You can sail a yacht, relax on a beach, fish or explore an island. It also provides a good bonding platform with your family members. And sailing with your kids is one of the best things you can ever do. It provides treasured memories that they will forever cherish. You not only get a chance of repairing burned bridges, but you...
