I like to combine travel with my family with good food and outdoor sports.
My daughter needs other children to play with or a swimming pool.
My wife likes it rather relaxed and easy in vacation, where as I need my daily ration of outdoor sports and cultural events. Not that easy to combine all three interests in one place.
Favorite places are all well preserved medival towns in Europe with that history still present today. My favorite restaurants are small and serve home made and authentic food of the area.
