Food Embassy

Food Embassy

on Mar 12, 2017

Sometimes as an expat you just find yourself craving food from home. Situated next door to the Portuguese Embassy and just along the road from the Irish Embassy and Japanese Consulate, the Food Embassy aims to please expats with a wide range of foods from around the world as well as some homegrown Russian favourites. It’s a tough ask to provide food that hits...

Nebo Trampoline Centre

Nebo Trampoline Centre

on Jan 28, 2017

I’m fairly certain that Little Pickle was born with springs in her knees. She doesn’t simply walk or run to where she wants to go, she jumps, hops and skips. On the couple of occasions when she has had the chance to play on a trampoline she has loved it, so it wasn’t hard to figure out that a great morning for our little lady would be a visit to...

Ice-skating in Gorky Park

Ice-skating in Gorky Park

Aviapark Mall

on Oct 7, 2016

Apparently Aviapark is Europe’s largest shopping mall. But that wasn’t our main reason for visiting. Aviapark may have lots of shops but it is also filled to the brim with entertainment options for kids both big and small. Almost all of the children’s things are located on the 4th floor. This is quite a common feature of shopping in Moscow and I...

Sculptures at Park Muzeon

on Sep 16, 2016

Sometimes as a parent I can spend one morning too many at a playground. There is only so much patience I have for pushing Little Pickle on the swings and roundabout before I feel the need to go somewhere a bit different. And when that happens, Park Muzeon is the ideal place to go. I can soak up a bit of art and culture, and Little Pickle can still have fun running...
