Hi everyone! I am looking for weekend/short break ideas outside of Berlin with my husband and 3 children (all my kids are under 5). They are not too bad on car journeys, but I don't want to go further than a 2-3 hour journey for my own sanity! We just thought it would be nice to do something while it's still "summer" and before we get restricted to school holidays. I'd appreciate any suggestions - also hotels or other accommodation. Thanks Bridget
Anyone know where I can find some nice girly but practical boots for my daughter? We went to the UK a couple of months ago and they had loads with Felicity Wishes and other girly designs in nice leather boots, but I decided to wait as her feet are growing fast. Now I can only find clumpy, more unisex stuff here. Thanks Becky

I am flying to South Africa in December with our two children. My husband is meeting us there a few days later. He will be in India when we leave. Do I need any sort of paperwork that he gives me permission to fly alone with the kids? I don't want to arrive at the airport with passports and then they don't allow me to take the kids without some formal written consent from him.
Hi there, I'm a new dad and would like to spend time with my little sprog - anyone know if I qualify for Elternzeit over here? I have worked here for 8 months, am a UK citizen. Is there a minimum time you have to work in Germany for before you qualify - I did work in the UK and can prove I paid my taxes and contributions etc. - don't know if theres an EU agreement between countries regarding this? The company I work for is quite small (less than 20 employees - does my employer have to let me have time off or can he object because of this? When do you have to apply for parental leave and how do I know how long I am entitled to ? Any advice mucho appreciated!
Hi, we are looking for ideas of where to go with two kids (8 & 7) for 3 days during the October break. We can go by car or train. We recently moved to Berlin and want to see a bit more of Germany. The kids are good travellers and used to visiting castles and cathedrals. They also enjoy short walks. Looking forward to your ideas.
