(Europe?) Vacation with two young kids
March 28, 2014 9:02 AM Subscribe
Where in the world should we take a two week vacation in late May with a toddler and an infant? We'll be traveling from southeast Asia to the US and can basically fly anywhere on the way back at no charge. (We'll still have to pay for lodging, food, entertainment, etc.). We're leaning towards somewhere in Europe, but are open to other ideas. Suggestions?

My family and I will finish up an expat assignment in May. Since we have to fly halfway round the world anyway to get to the US, we decided to take two weeks for a vacation stopover along the way. And thankfully, my company will pay for the flights (within reason).
The big catch is that my kids are a nearly-three-year-old and a 9-month-old. This obviously limits our mobility and ability to do museums and other adult activities. But it's not as bad as you might think. We've traveled extensively while on assignment to several developing nations and loved it. We just have to take it a little slower and be flexible.
We are thinking somewhere in southern Europe because it is about halfway home and the weather is nice in late May. But we're also considering the Middle East or New Zealand.
So where to go?
