We're heading overseas for the first time as a family of 5. We're not city lovers by nature, so we're attempting to get hikes and outdoors time in as much as possible. Tentative itinerary is below. Is this too much with 3 kids or have I managed to hit some of the high spots while also catering to spouse's hate of big cities?
