“My Travel Journal” as the title explains is a travel journal to be used by children while traveling to other cities and countries around the world. Often children are not sure what to write about, “My Travel Journal’’ is filled with prompts and interesting facts to look out for and write about. The journal takes a child from when the family decides to take a trip, to what to pack, where to stay, foreign words they will need, their favourite moments, facts on the city and country they visited, money matters and a world map to highlight cities they visited. There are also many pages that allow the child to write freely about their daily activities. Dedicated pages are available for drawing, creating a collage and attaching items they have collected on their trip. Read more

July witnesses a bustling Dubai International Airport with excited families returning to their home countries. However, at the end of the long break ask children ‘did they enjoy their holidays?’ and many of them will answer ‘it was OK but I was a bit bored because I had no friends’. For many Dubai based kids they actually know no-one their own age in their home countries as all their friends live in Dubai so the excitement of the holidays soon wears off and the boredom sets in. Summer Camps abroad may be just the answer for Dubai kids. Some of our Expat Echo Dubai readers tried out one of these camps last year and highly recommend it.
Camp Quinebarge located in an idyllic spot, nestled in the heart of New Hampshire’s lakes and mountains regions, sitting on 65 acres of forest and 1,250 feet of waterfront on Lake Kanasatka, in Moultonborough, NH. Read more
