This is brilliant and so, so, so true!

Funny but I totally disagree :-) Vacations include young kids. Vacation doesn't mean absolved of all responsibility.

Find the article humorous and mostly true,
When traveling with kids we just call it a trip.
And taking some alone time for parents to rejuvenate and take vacation doesn't mean absolving one self of parental responsibility.

Heard nothing special there and nothing more then Tel Aviv, eilat or Netanya. Wanted Greece but in May can't find direct flights to any islands.

I'd go to Petra or Cairo/pyramids. In Petra kosher food is a pain though... not sure about Cairo.

Why do you think Cairo would be better then Petra.
Always praying for delayed baggage.

Jordanian border patrol is known to confiscate foodstuffs at the border. It's possible that they do it in Egypt too, just haven't heard of that experience personally.

I wouldn’t recommend Petra for a overnight stay.

A few day in St. Petersburg.
Is it feasible to do a Ukrainian/Poland/etc kevorim  tour for the next few days?


If not, what would pair nicely with St. Petersburg?

St. Petersburg is way way way north of anything in Ukraine or Poland. So unless your flying to Kiev its a 15+ hour drive. Take the  ferry to Helsinki and do other Scandanavian countries by ferry.
Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

Doing a 5 day stopover before going to Israel this summer. Narrowed down to Barcelona or Monaco/Nice. Any thoughts on which way to lean? Would be staying at W in Barcelona or Le Meridian in Monaco. Cant seem to decide which place to visit.
Going with my wife and a 1 year old. Any thoughts would be great
