Summer vacation… it’s a great time to appreciate family, catch up with friends, and relax after a hectic school year. Perhaps you even have a journey planned. Whether you’re in Switzerland for the summer, or off elsewhere, we have great ideas on how to enjoy your summer journeys. There are tips for travelling in the Lake Como region and for visiting Cambridge. Our recipes include tortilla soup and yoghurt rice salad, which could be new summer treats for your families.
Enjoy journeys far and near, physical and spiritual, with our writers in this summer issue of Mothering Matters. And we hope that all of your journeys will take you someplace worthwhile and bring you safely back home again.
